U.S. Deficit: Scare Tactics vs. Reality

by: Teddy Goodson

Sun Feb 07, 2010 at 21:33:16 PM EST


PERMANENT UPDATE: I SEEM TO HAVE TAPPED INTO THE REAL NEWS PERMANENT LINK, SO WHAT YOU SEE HERE WILL CHANGE EACH DAY TO THE NEXT REAL NEWS NETWORK INTERVIEW OR STORY. SINCE IT IS ONE OF THE BEST OLD-STYLE JOURNALISTIC WORK BEING DONE TODAY, I DECIDED TO LET IT RUN
The undeniably extraordinary U.S. fiscal deficit is being leveraged into a frightening armageddon by Ron Paul libertarians, Tea Party fanatics in need of anger management, deficit hawk Blue Dogs, and Republicans seeking political brownie points against Obama while beating the no-tax-no-entitlements drum. The Real News has started a series of interviews on the deficit, and Republican attempts to privatize Social Security and reduce entitlements in general as a way to "solve" the problem. Watch this video clip (be patient with the brief opening plea for support).

The link mutated
I had no idea that the link provided to the interview on the national deficit would change itself into the following interview on climate change. Sorry... will try to find the original link and make it permanent. If I fail, just enjoy the Real News---- straightforward journalism in the old school.
