Now here’s a pretty refreshing read, FWIW.
It’s an article featuring mostly conservative economists and policy makers associated with Republicans arguing for a) more stimulus in the short run to boost growth and jobs, and b) the addition of new revenues in the budget deal the super-committee is about to get to work on.
True to form, Rep Cantor’s in there saying that he doesn’t care what R’s, D’s, or XYZ’s say—he’s will not countenance new revenues, and the 6 R’s on the committee all pinky shaked with Norquist on his no-tax pledge.
So not sure what this amounts to, but it’s good to know that slightly fewer people than I thought have lost their minds.
