The Debt Distraction: 5 Falsehoods Hurting Our EconomyQuicklink submitted by Jody Walker Permalink
|When people say that we need a "balanced approach" to reducing our debt and being fiscally responsible, what I hear is: We need to balance what is true with what is false. We need to balance what is good for the whole country with what is good for a few super wealthy and powerful people. We need to balance the facts about how the economy works with self-serving fantasies of the the Koch brothers distributed by Fox News.
When I hear demands for a "small government" right now, I hear more Koch brothers, Goldman Sachs and Exxon controlling how we live, the air we breathe. I hear less We the People. I hear less oversight and accountability of powerful, multinational corporations. There is nothing wrong with small government as a matter of principle. In fact, I am all for limited government. Who wants unlimited government? Unlimited government is totalitarianism.
