As a gut reaction, it’s encouraging that the media is starting to scream about the shameful state of US politics and economy today.1 Unfortunately, the country’s bottom line is just the tip of the iceberg. It’s going to a long-term overhaul to get us to where we need to be.
Also, while “burning the place to the ground” is a fair characterization of the republican role in the debt crisis, I think this guy’s use of the phrase is glib and lets them off way too easy. What kind of person wants to destroy there own country, and how do these people manage to get elected? Completely insane.
