This morning I read about Chrysler's return of a bunch of the money the State gave it during the dark days of yesteryore. And, I thought, that ought to be one more counter on the side of those who think that this Administration is doing at least somethings more or less right and, consequently, as more evidence that the Neoliberal lock on policy-making ought loosen.
First up is Mitt Romney. He denounced Obama's Administration's bailout plan as the worst kind of socialism and so on. Now he claims that he invented Obama's Administration's bailout plan. The Republican majority in the House are so dedicated to deregulation that they are behaving like cads and bounders in their "grilling" of Elizabeth Warren. The House Minority Leader wants spending cuts to offset any aid to Joplin MO. And so on.
How long do we have to put up with this nonsense? The Neoliberals are wrong and events have shown them to be wrong. It's time to try something else.
