    It's time for change. It's time to move forward. We've tried Democrats play... Where has it gotten us? Moving America in the Direction of Greece will not make US better.

    Would be a good idea if that were happening, but it's not.

    I'll be nice and pretend you really believe that.

    You see, dear, Greece is under an austerity program. An austerity program is what the far right wants. Look it up. Austerity programs like Greece's and the teabaggers' cuts all government spending pretty much to where they can just have the lights on and the toilets flushing. That means cops and teachers aren't getting paid and all public assistance ends.

    That means nobody has any money to buy things at the shops. So the shops lay off the workers and close down.

    With those working not getting paid, and most others laid off, their is far less tax revenue to pay the national debt. So Greece is forced to borrow more, while cutting more sources of revenue.


    Do you really want the right wing's austerity program here? I'd rather see the highway system repaired, new bridges built, high speed rail easing air traffic congestion, and infrastructure rebuilds that can save people from natural disasters. Do you really think FEMA should be privatized, possibly by a foreign owner?

    What it means is Greece did the same thing that we are doing, only quicker. They thought they could spend their way out of debt too. Now they have no money left for anything.
    Austerity should have been their mantra years ago. Uncontrolled spending comes to an end when there is nothing left to spend. Poor Greece. Poor America.

    LOL, now I het a nerve....yeah it had ALOT to do with it. banks HAD to loand or be designated as racist and open up to bullshit lawsuits......this is onetime liberals wanted LESS regulation, and since they dont know much about economics, it failed miserably....even Clinton's Secretary of HUD, Andre Cuomo stated it would happen
