Fix the Debt! Lose the Workers!

Jonathan Chait has this piece on NY Mag’s politics blog about how millions of unemployed Americans are being made to suffer so millionaire Senators, Congressmen, and their allies can rail about the deficit, which, let us always remember, was rung up back when they were running the show in the early 2000s.

Let us also remember this whole debt/deficit noise is phony. The very people scolding today didn’t care much (remember: “Deficits don’t matter.”) back then. This is the current avenue for attack on public programs, nothing more.

Later,
