Austerity Never Created a Single Job


The 2012 election should be about jobs, but it'll probably be about birth certificates, dogs on car roofs, and bullshit.

You can read what President Obama has said here and wonder if there is any political will to make this happen (not with this Congress) and you can wonder if they are finally starting to listen to Paul Krugman at the White House (I hope so). The death of austerity cannot come sooner. It is really all about balancing budgets on the backs of the working poor and it has never created any jobs nor has it placated the supposed "confidence fairy" that, at least now in 2012, has been proven to be a lie.
