      unemployed who do re-enter the market will do so for permanently reduced earnings.

      The destructiveness of austerity the financial collapse, the immediate failure to deal with it alone will last a generation or more. Adding austerity simply extend the destruction further in time and space.

      Frankly, I'd rather take down Exxon or Goldman Sachs, the way we're taking down RushBeckistan, than elect another "better" Democrat who's going to wind up singing for the bankster choir.
