Showing The Folly Of Liberal Complaints About “Austerity” In A Single Paragraph


If you listen to liberals like Paul Krugman, you’d think the biggest problem with the economy is that the government isn’t spending enough money. In the imaginary world they inhabit, we’ve adopted a policy of “austerity” and the relentless barrage of spending cuts is hurting the economy.

Of course, this is COMPLETELY INSANE and this quote from Lindsey Graham of all people, explains why.

This is an anemic recovery as a pretty long recession, 37 months in a row over 8 percent unemployment for the people in the United States, the longest streak since the Great Depression. Last month in February, $229 billion monthly deficit, the highest deficit in the history of the nation.

Wait, the problem with the economy is supposed to be that the government is not spending enough money, but we’re running the largest monthly deficit in history while we simultaneously have the longest streak of over 8 percent unemployment since the Depression. Liberals are pushing the idea that we need more spending for reasons that actually have nothing to do with spending, but for anyone who’s not a fanatic, this should blow a hole the size of the Grand Canyon in the idea that our problem is that we’re not spending enough money.
