What Digby Said

1 comment March 11th, 2011at 11:29am Posted by Eli

Digby sums up what’s wrong with the budget debate in one sentence:

It’s very easy to prescribe “shared sacrifice” when you will not personally sacrifice anything at all.

Washington’s definition of “shared” is ridiculously constrained.  If the corporations and the rich were forced to “sacrifice” to the same level of pain as the Republicans (and probably Obama and lots of Democrats) advocate, we could probably wipe out the deficit and still have money left over for real stimulus and infrastructure repair.

    With the kind of money we could make from that level of sacrifice, we could buy another country. I’m not talking some small fry like Haiti or Trinidad, either. We could probably buy France.
