Self-Inflicted WoundsSubmitted by kevink on Fri, 02/22/2013 - 23:22
It's insane how both the media and the government refer to every issue as a "self-inflicted wound". As if our national debt isn't really a problem. Cutting the debt WOULD BE the problem though. Utterly comical were it not so creepy for being the propaganda that it obviously is.
It will be very interesting to see if the sequester goes through and then nothing terrible gets cut. How will it be spun then? Of course, we know there will be no sequester. And even in the remote chance there is, TPTB will probably cut things that will cause pain (e.g. fewer emergency workers) because it will "teach the public" how bad cutting spending is.
