Ole Davey Boy and his Eton cronies have only gone about austerity half-assedly.
They are not attacking with it properly, instead opting to cut some things, while leaving other things. For instance, the MP Allowance. There is no reason why they should have the amount available to them that they do. You'dve though they'd learned about that with the recent MP scandal, but apparently not.
If one is to opt for austerity, one has to go about it right.
Same for Stimulus and Keynesian economics; go hard or don't do it at all.
Blankfein should definitely be punished, as so should the other prick. Another fail by the Obama administration in not punishing those who contributed to this . He and Bush both should be ashamed.
I hear ya. I concede that both parties are full of crap about about shared sacrifice. The GOP wants austerity except for the plutocrats and the Pentagon. The Dems talk a good game but they can't pass a budget and haven't reigned in the debt.
A 3rd party alternative would be great, but is the medicine this country needs really an electable political platform?
