Meet The Press For 2/8/09

Once again, it’s all about the economy…

I thought it was a decent back and forth, but I think it’s pretty clear that free marketers will NEVER back down from the idea that tax cuts are the greatest good. And during a time when pretty much any tax cut will either be saved or used to pay down personal debt, I just don’t think these folks are being realistic about their ideology. Fair enough, you believe in supply side economics, but you can’t credibly claim that your ideas should be seriously considered if all you’re going to do is rehash the same ideas that many think led to this current crisis.

I don’t know folks, maybe I’m completely missing the boat on this entire stimulus bill, but I continue to be unconvinced by these arguments. They feel extremely hollow after the last eight years and I’m willing to try something new in order to figure out if different ideas work.
