What a load of complete bull from hacks that have been dead wrong since the dot com bubble (minus Schiff). All they are bitching about is them
finally paying the tax rate that they had during the Clinton years. Boo freaking hoo.
I love how Conservatives bitch to high hell about infrastructure spending, new green technologies to get us off of foreign oil, helping out the middle
class with a tax cut and new investments in science and health care.
Yet they are perfectly ok about spending 1 Trillion a year in a bull# war in Iraq.
Or...billions on ROXXORSOMFG!!!11 Star Wars Lasers.
Moreover, I have alot of respect for Schiff and I agree with alot he has to say. But one thing Schiff and Ron Paul supporters don't get is we cannot
fix this inherited mess from Reagean\Friedman policies by just letting it all crash. Yes that would fix the balance sheets quicker and shorten the
length of the pain, however what they fail to realize is, we will NOT HAVE A COUNTRY ANYMORE.
What good is having the balance sheets look good if there is 80% unemployment, riots in the streets, martial law and no semblance of what America is?
Yes it would fix our economy if there would be one. Because you need a Government before you can have an economy.
So we have to do something different, something familiar. Something THAT DID WORK during the first Republican Depression. Spend, SPEND BIG. Spend on
platforms that produce things so we can sell to other nations, like green technologies.
Yes I know...uber inflation, but we know how to fix inflation. We cut spending and pay down the debt. Don't kid yourselves Obama will be cutting
loads from the Federal Government especially in Defense. Doing that will stave off inflation.
For God sakes stop listening to right wing bs media.
