  •  I mostly agree with that. (0+ / 0-)

    Shutting down government programs during a recession, essentially makes the recession worse.  It means that more people can't pay their rent and things spiral downward.

    At some point unfortunately, I think something is going to have to give.  Our economy is growing more quickly than Europe, but not enough to take care of the massive shortfall.

    In time, we will fall off a fiscal cliff as the tax cuts lapse, and we will see what the administration chooses to do after the election.  It's likely to be a very bumpy ride.

    By saying it would be 'courageous," i wasn't necessarily saying it would be smart, just that it would take courage.  If Romney chose this occasion to say something unpopular, it would be the first time he did so.

    •  It is a purely Republican meme (0+ / 0-)

      that we cannot afford to invest in the economy, with the corollary that we should therefore just give up and give the rich everything. Basically, it is a gnome Magic Underwear business plan:

      Tax cuts!
