Greek Austerity Misses Deficit Target

Hey, look, the drive to austerity hasn’t helped the Greeks meet their deficit targets. Guess what? It won’t happen here either. All it does, especially here, is squeeze those who are already being squeezed while the robber barons get to fleece us yet again.

It’s almost as if “starve the beast” policies are designed to keep those with wealth flush in cash while the middle and lower classes languish.

Almost.
