Dumb Dickie Durbin, from Elise Foley, Puffington Post :
WASHINGTON — The Republicans are killing Keynesian economics with their attempt to cut spending as the economy rebounds from a recession, Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said in a floor speech on Sunday.
“I would say … that symbolically, that agreement is moving us to the point where we are having the final interment of John Maynard Keynes,” he said, referring to the British economist. “He normally died in 1946 but it appears we are going to put him to his final rest with
Reac, Stacy McCain, Other McCain :
Oh, if only it were so! Most sane people had thought Keynesianism died in the “stagflation” debacle of the 1970s, and yet for the past three years the ghost of Lord Keynes has haunted us again. Despite the discrediting of Keynes’s theories, liberals still believe in him and so, any time liberals wield decisive influence, we can expect to see the same disastrous deficit-spending policies pursued.
That is a neutral objective fact!
More dumb Durbin, via Tina Korbe, Hot Air :
Sen. Durbin said on FNS this morning that Dems haven’t passed a budget bc of 60-vote threshold. Odd he doesn’t know you only need 51.
Alas the theory of Keynesian economics will not be truly dead as long there are brain dead voters stupid enough to continue to ele3ct morons, sorry Ace, to Congress like Little Dickie Durbin.
Obami flunk economics, and medicine, yet again, from Jennifer Pereiba and Kevin Dolar, ABC News :
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has announced sweeping new guidelines for women’s health care which will change everything from distribution of birth control pills to administration of breast exams — and will mean insured women will no longer pay anything out of their own pocket.
As for who is picking up the extra cost, White House advisors say they don’t believe the changes will impact premiums — but ultimately, that decision will be made by insurance companies.
One, as I see, normal pregnancy is not a medical issue but rather a life style choice. See Roe. v Wade.
Two birth control is a commodity and a commodity, as product of human endeavor, can never be free. The insurance companies are sure not pick ofo the cost. That leaves the premium payers.
Three, the ‘rate pretend to be in favor of choice, but they forcing everybbody to pay for birth control, whether or not they are sexually active and without regard to their desire to actually start a family. Mone dare call this progress.
Say good night Jon. Why Huntsman is not in the hunt. No foods need apply from Philip Elliot, Bloomberg Businessweek :
Touting a record that could complicate his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman challenged his party Thursday to protect the environment and acknowledge climate change as a real threat.
Huntsman, who is trailing in the polls but is working to build a campaign that could deny front-runner Mitt Romney the nod, criticized those who question the science behind climate change and loathe government’s role in fighting it. His tough message was unlikely to endear him to conservatives who hold great sway in the party’s nominating process.
Anthropogenic Global Warming is fraud. Anybody so stupid as believe Algore line manure is too stupid to be president. No better example than our current president.
