Voodoo vs. Can-Do

J. M. C.
July 2011
Progressive Populist;7/1/2011, Vol. 17 Issue 12, p2
The author opines that the U.S. Republican voodoo economics has failed given the low job totals in May 2011 but views that the U.S. can recover from the economic downturn. The author attributes the deficit to spending on wars and tax cuts that benefited the rich, and to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The author believes that the cost of running an empire is living outside the means and letting working people pay the cost of making the world safe for corporations. The author considers 2011 as a year for a progressive populist insurgency.
