There’s only one thing that should be on the minds of our leaders for the next 5 years: creating more jobs!
And that can only be done by government spending. There simply isn’t sufficient demand for the private sector alone to start hiring.
So the focus should be on a massive jobs program, one that would hire at least 10 million Americans and cost less than half of the amount of money we piss away annually on the Pentagon.
The deficit fetish is absolutely the wrong way to go. Taking money out of the economy means slower growth, higher unemployment, and a continuation of the eminently avoidable sense of despair that grips the country.
