An excellent post from David Atkins at Hullabaloo:
"The fact that everyone in the Village Media has bought into the deficit
obsession as it were a real thing rather than simply the latest
iteration of a decades-long tactic designed to further enrich the
wealthy shows not just herd mentality and willful blindness. It shows a
craven willingness to go along with direct economic sabotage and
shameless lying in the guise of politics as usual.
It's moral tragedy on a grand scale."
It's well worth clicking through and reading the whole thing, which sums up very concisely the details of the decades-long Republican enterprise to steal the assets of the nation and turn them over to the rich, and the collaboration of the mainstream media in the whole process. I highly recommend clicking through and taking a look.
