Response to HiPointDem (Original post)

28. Excellent article. The truth is here:

“austerity” isn’t designed to fix our problems; it is instead meant to be a permanent condition, a new normal, the endless, changeless natural order.


"The country is broke." I hear that all the time & every time I hear it I refute it. TPTB tell us we are broke because they don't want us to think about other revenue streams, revenue streams that impact them. How about rescinding the Bush tax cuts. How about a stock transaction tax. How about raising the cap on SS. How about taxing investment income like labor. None of these suggestions are ever allowed to take hold, but chained CPI & other austerity measures are. They are greedy fuckers who don't want to pay their way.
