And the political right has spotted the obvious cure! Cut the deficit and push unemployment higher. That will obviously bring inflation under control. We need inflation under 0% so we can keep the fat cats happy and the economy "humming" with more job losses and more foreclosures.
Right now Republican legislators are busy in Washington fighting the "socialist" Obama to ensure a better future for America. A future in which nobody is bothered by having a job or a home. A nation that lives on the streets and is ready to stampede to the beck and call of any plutocrat willing to offer a job at starvation wages. Oh wondrous future! Oh blessed day! May it come soon!
