  •  Cut nothing. (0+ / 0-)

    No cuts are needed.  In fact they'll just push us back into recession.  We need to reduce taxes and spend like crazy right now.  Deficits are are required when aggregate demand is down and the private sector can no longer borrow its way to prosperity.  Obama should take a course in Macroeconomics from someone of Paul Krugman's caliber to better learn what's really going on before letting the neo-liberal economists (you know the Rubins and the Summers and the Clintons the Simpsons and the Bowles and the Geithners and the Petersons) delude him.  Then he should stand firm for job creation and become an advocate for employment like FDR did.
