The Hidden History of the Debt Limit Hijack: Democrats Started It - Shadowproof

The Hidden History of the Debt Limit Hijack: Democrats Started It - Shadowproof

I have a piece in the American Prospect today on in the debt limit fight. I think they’re actually in descending order of importance, and the biggest one is right at the top – this deal is the function of horrible economic stewardship in 2009 and 2010.OBAMA AND DEMOCRATS COULD HAVE FIXED THE ECONOMY. While this sounds pie-in-the-sky, there’s actually a pretty simple solution to our economic woes. It involves higher near-term deficits, particularly spending to create jobs. The Obama administration admitted that it underestimated the extent of the recession, and last Friday’s from 2007 to...

Jack Conway: Break Up the Big Banks - Shadowproof

Jack Conway: Break Up the Big Banks - Shadowproof

The Senate election in Kentucky offers a pretty stark choice – hardcore glibertarian Rand Paul, or mainstream Democrat Jack Conway. Conway, the state’s Attorney General, sat down with FDL News while at Netroots Nation, and I was impressed with his ability to describe common-sense issues in populist terms, and his insight on people’s anger with the current state of the economy. Notably, he supported breaking up the nation’s biggest banks and using the tools of the FTC and the Justice Department’s anti-trust division to restore competition to Wall Street and fix the economy.Conway and Paul...

USDA chief Tom Vilsack was apparently ready to halt the planting of GM alfalfa until the White House meddled. According to , the White House intervened because of their new mantra of limiting “burdensome” regulations. And even mentioned the cabinet-level concern over GM alfalfa, and making sure it could be planted. Philpott writes:If White House political strategists rallied behind deregulated alfalfa,...

Debate Odds and Ends - Shadowproof

Debate Odds and Ends - Shadowproof

{!hitembed ID=”hitembed_1″ width=”380″ height=”214″ align=”right” !}A few more comments on last night’s debate:• I don’t think the college student worried about his job prospects was looking for the answer Obama gave about the budding rise of manufacturing. He’s not looking for a factory job. I think high-skill manufacturing should absolutely be part of the mix of the 21st-century job landscape, but there’s a way to tailor that to a graduate of higher education, such as through research and development, or even administrative or executive roles.• Romney’s alibi on “Let Detroit go bankrupt”...

The Supreme Court's Conservative Activist Judges - Shadowproof

The Supreme Court's Conservative Activist Judges - Shadowproof

Giving post-mortems on the question of health care at the Supreme Court is premature, and as law professor writes, you can find as much evidence for upholding Obamacare in the text of the arguments as you can evidence for tossing it out.However, as a political spectacle, with the eyes of the nation upon them, it was clear to see that we have a large contingent, perhaps a majority, of committed judicial activists on the Court. Only they’re on the conservative side of the ledger. I think EJ Dionne is :Three days of Supreme Court arguments over the health-care law demonstrated for all to see...

Last summer, a convinced thousands of America that the government had created a “secret” bank account for them that could be tapped to pay bills. Would-be customers used Federal Reserve routing numbers over 100,000 times, attempting to execute transactions. “The Federal Reserve provides banking services only for banks,” the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta was compelled to announce in a . “Individuals do not have accounts at the Federal Reserve.”But a new co-authored by two Treasury Department veterans, “Central Banking for All: A Public Option for Bank Accounts,” argues that Americans...
