Blogging for Dissent Magazine, Professor Daniel J.H. Greenwoodreleased a response to the recent budget compromise passed in congress. Excerpt:
“The budget deal is a disgrace.
With unemployment at its highest level in decades, the president and Congress have reached a preliminary deal to fire federal employees, cut essential support for the middle class and the victims of the recession, and destroy jobs. All in order to finance a deficit that is largely the result of tax cuts for the rich, bailouts of a bloated financial sector, profit-driven rises in health care costs, and unnecessary wars. What we need is precisely the opposite.”
