Jeff Jackson is my hero and my faith in NC legislators is returning. Carson
When his colleagues at the North Carolina General Assembly didn't show up for work on Tuesday, State Sen. Jeff Jackson was surprised - but he made the most of his day at the office. He joins Alex Wagner to talk about his unusual day.

Another excellent editorial by Paul Krugman. My favorite comment: "The public's misunderstanding of debt and deficits didn't just create itself out of thin air. The Right has been peddling this nonsense for decades. It is now Republican anti-government, anti-tax dogma, closely related to Reagan's Eleventh Commandment to "starve the beast". Corporations, One-percenters, and many businessmen love this economic rubbish because a deflationary economy is one which has no wage rate/living standard improvements and no threat of tax increases, even when corporations have reduced their share of the tax load to a whopping five percent.  The public buys the economic rubbish because the Right has created an entire echo chamber industry devoted to further enriching the obscenely wealthy... The public never catches on because, as Elizabeth Warren puts it, "the game is rigged"- there is nothing remotely comparable on the progressive side to offset the lying."

Putin is the Adolf Hitler of the current global political sphere. The next few years could be a prelude to another large scale military action in Europe. I hope European and American political leaders have the insight and courage to prepare for the coming test of wills.
Evidence is increasing that Russian troops and Russian equipment have been pouring into eastern Ukraine again.

I do not typically republish op-ed pieces I disagree with but this one is so illuminating of the Republican tax mind set I could not resist. From the comments: 
'"based not on redistribution but on growth, work and opportunity"
That is gross. It is beyond just a lie, all the way into calculated destruction of what America was at its best, postwar.
The Republicans have been following a policy based on redistribution upward. They've taken all of whatever growth there has been, and more, all for their privileged elite given tax breaks and huge financial rescues for any bad bets.  
It is the Republicans who have impeded growth, who have insisted that "stimulus" be largely tax breaks for them, instead of projects to grow the economy by rebuilding infrastructure and investing in the future. This article if published at all ought to be accompanied by a damning editorial commentary on lies and sabotage of good governance.'

From the comments: "Unfortunately, the possessors of wisdom and the owners of obscene wealth live in different universes. The capitalist malefactors are, of course, hysterical over the market volatility and even the feeblest belated efforts to rein them in. Their response to economic turmoil has been put their legalized bribery into overdrive as they drill the already toothless Dodd-Frank law into a gaping maw of uselessness. It's capitalism on crack. And as the crash from the latest orgy of unbridled excess looms, all we can do is brace ourselves. and wish that instead of listening to Jamie Dimon whine, we could be watching him and his pals do a perp walk.
"The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is Fascism—ownership of Government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power." - FDR"

Many thanks to the commenter for FDR's definition of Fascism. The Obama administration and Congress must begin to slow the growth of Fascism in America by taxing the wealthy, increasing the estate tax, breaking up  corporate monopolies, and standing up for middle and lower class families.

From the comments: "Paul Krugman, Christina Romer, Steiglitz, Jerrod Bernstein - there were several economists, journalists, and bloggers (Jonathan Chait) who were saying the stimulus wasn't big enough. But the Administration got passed what it could. The Admin's problem was then it trumpeted that law as the be all end when it should have been saying it was only a first step. Krugman, again, predicted what happened next: the stimulus wasn't big enough and Republicans then declared even the idea of stimulus a failure, and immediately went on an austerity rampage. Meanwhile, McConnell had already declared that they would not participate in governing nor even think about compromising with this 1st Black president in order to, as McConnell said, "make him a one term president." How they haven't been tried for treason is beyond me... But this author really needs to go back and do a better job of researching what actually happened. And all you media types need to quit letting the Republicans and conservatives off the hook for their unconscionable behavior. Hold them accountable or you reward that behavior."

Hear, hear... I am also tired of the main stream media's amnesia when it comes to the Republican party's economic mayhem for the past 6 years. Hold them accountable or you reward that behavior.
Economic leaders made the 2008 financial crisis worse through a combination of misinterpreted history and missed opportunities, a new book argues.

From the comments: "Austerity has developed like a virus epidemic replicating itself in the US and EU, but the EU countries vary widely in severity. Successful EU countries like in Northern Europe had a stronger tradition of public spending. Thus they could survive and fight off the virulent Austerity bug better than say the US, where govt. itself is vilified by the dominant party. And our other party is too weak to fight off the Austerity malady. 
The US has for a much longer time been led by budget cutters as the essential policy of the dominant GOP, so it’s become a norm. We don’t even know we are sick! But then our election financing is uniquely and legally dominated by big $$$ for the top 0.1%"

From the comments: "Glad to hear Mr. Ramos speaking up and directly confronting the Republicans. This is what we need all journalists to do. They have been treated with kid gloves, like you treat VIPS, instead of challenging them regarding their lack of ideas. Anti-Obama anything, anti-science, anti-immigrant, anti-gay, anti-abortion, but pushing God, guns, and tax cuts for the wealthy. That's the extent of GOP toolbox. We need a stronger response by journalists and any moderator of debates. The Republicans have been getting away with so much nonsense in the media that we are not getting a rational discussion."
Mr. Ramos, the influential Univision and Fusion anchor, has begun criticizing Republicans over their immigration stance, posing a challenge to their 2016 hopes.

I am not surprised to see the Republican majority continuing their political agenda instead of working on the serious issues that face this country. Eventually the American electorate will wake up and roll the Congressional majority back to the center. I hope it is not to late. From the editorial: "Republicans apparently see value in trying to sabotage any possible success for Mr. Obama, even if it harms American interests."
House Speaker John Boehner’s invitation to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel defies diplomatic norms and common sense.

From the conclusion: 'it is remarkable to watch the same financial institutions that almost wrecked our nation’s economy work to heighten risks in the system. “The truth about Dodd-Frank is it’s pretty moderate and pretty compromised already,” Mr. Stanley of Americans for Financial Reform said. “Any further compromise and it tends to collapse into nothingness.” Which is exactly what Wall Street seems to be hoping for.'

From the comments: "Hurry up and trash the economy and environment. There's still time to blame it all on Obama. Just one question though - when there is a global glut of oil, prices are in free fall and US states whose budgets depend on fracking being profitable, why in the world would you want to make the KXL your first order of business? I get it the R's owe the Koch machine ROI, but seriously, one might speculate that Congress members have investment portfolios full of incentives."
Eager to show that they can govern well as they take control of Congress, Republicans aim to quickly advance energy and health care legislation.
