Despite the continuing austerity fail, Republicans and some Dems can't seem to get the message.

I believe we'd be hard pressed to find an incidence where austerity has brought economic change for the good in history! Trickle down economics was a Reagan incontinence - that seems to be contagious among the GOP!

When they have to send trucks to pick up bodies they will blame the dead.

Why? Well, let's see - because they ahave accepted and are accepting large amounts of money from those who have money to keep pushing it? And they think we won't notice?

Thanks Cal for the link to the article by Kenneth Thomas. Austerity is not the answer, job creation and investment in infrastructure is the way to go. When will these politicians wake up! Read and noted.

It's all so that the rich get richer and the poor get screwed...

Austerity does nothing! Take away someone's job, how do they live? This is just fabricating the economy into a depression of mass proportions. The corporations love it because it will mean when poeple are able to finally get a job they will work for anything...including peanuts. Mega corps all win big as usual. you and I ...zero!
