Status Quo: Divided govt, gridlock, fiscal cliff, next exit: Greece
At the rate we are running up deficits with no tangible plans for correcting our economic malaise the message of the toon is a stark reality…
Blame the GOP for the Status Quo items. As for “next exit: Greece” — utter codswallop.
Greece is not an issue, that’s a Fox News quality bogus prediction. As any economist could tell you, America can make more dollars if it needs to and cannot be caught in Greece’s trap. Greece’s biggest problem is that too many Greeks don’t pay their income taxes, they let their currency be controlled by other people, and those people think against all evidence that austerity is necessary. In other words, the Paul Ryan / Ron Paul platform. Thank goodness Americans saw through that.
I guess Ariail doesn’t know how to draw a Republican Congressional roadblock.
Who here is happy that bus isn’t heading to two new wars around the world, huge tax cuts for the rich at the expense of the middle class, poor and our economy being further sunk with excessive republican spending on credit?
Going over the fiscal cliff, or slope if you watch MSNBC, might be a good thing. It would render Grover Norquist impotent, or irrelevant and would cut the defecit and cut military spending.
And in the innocent hopeful independent world, After that bus goes up the road another quarter mile, there’s a sign that says, “Putting America to Work/Project funded by the American Recovery and Restoration Act.”And there’s republicans and democrats working on all of those projects.But why are they so close to Greece, NY?^http://www.eachtown.com/New-York/City/Greece;29759/^hopefully, w/ a dash of humor,C.
The “roadblocks” all read “GOP”, and the only cliff is Boehner’s ego.
I’ve heard of inflation, but I’ve seen no evidence of it in the past four years, nor is there any prospect of it on the horizon, despite all the quantitative easing we’ve been doing. We can get out of this recession by spending government money, that was proved by Roosevelt and Reagan. Then we can balance the budget by raising revenue and cutting spending, that was proved by Clinton. This ain’t rocket science.
