THEN AGAIN, SUNRISE AND SUNSET CONFIIRM THE CONSERVATIVE WORLDVIEW:

Why the Obama Tax Deal Confirms the Republican Worldview (Robert Reich, December 8, 2010, Huffington Post)

Apart from its extraordinary cost and regressive tilt, the tax deal negotiated between the president and the Republicans has another fatal flaw.

It confirms the Republican worldview.

Americans want to know what happened to the economy and how to fix it. At least Republicans have a story -- the same one they've been flogging for thirty years. The bad economy is big government's fault and the solution is to shrink government.


Do you really hear much from the GOP about government causing the recession? Aren't they instead saying that the big government response to it was unhelpful.
