“This afternoon at the White House, the President met with influential progressives to talk about the importance of preventing a tax increase on middle class families, strengthening our economy and adopting a balanced approach to deficit reduction.” Well isn't that special. The arrogance is not surprising. The MSNBC pundits have no idea that he is in lock step with Keynesian Economics. I believe they have no knowledge of this failed policy that has never worked and will never work. Just look at France's 180 to the Right.
