Deficit reduction – the utter meaninglessness of

Yes, surveys say that people are concerned about reducing the deficit, but a close examination shows that this concern is hugely overstated and very few of those who claim to be concerned about deficits really have much of a clue as to what they’re talking about. Where the level of the deficit actually is and how much people express concern about it are not at all correlated. People get concerned about it when politicians make noise about it. Period.

Link to flyer on Cat Food Commission. Two important points made on the flyer: There’s really no evidence that the Commission is actually concerned about the deficit and the Commission is really determined to see to it that progressive programs can’t be carried out.
