The great sell-out

Here's something to think about:

"People who want to see the budget cut are people who are advocating throwing people out of work, it's that simple," says Dean Baker of the pressure from conservatives on Obama's budget--pressure, it appears, that Obama is conceding to as he brags that discretionary spending will be the lowest since Eisenhower's administration. So Obama's budget includes cuts to infrastructure, education, and more, and for Republicans, that's still not enough.

I found it right here:

Dean Baker: Budget Cuts are the Real Job-Killers

There's a video over there of Baker speaking.

Also, I really recommend that you read the comments.
