Probably shouldn't have spent of 2010-2011 talking about "tightening our belts."


Following up on this morning’s job numbers, it’s worth reemphasizing a point the right generally prefers to ignore: spending cuts are making unemployment worse. Dealing with the jobs crisis is hard enough, and conservative policies are akin to throwing an anvil at a drowning economy.

Where I get a little impatient with Steve these days is, while it's true that conservative polices are screwing us, who said this just 3 months ago?

Government has to start living within its means, just like families do. We have to cut the spending we can’t afford so we can put the economy on sounder footing, and give our businesses the confidence they need to grow and create jobs.

Hint: it wasn't John Boehner.
