Many of us are tuned in to these "fiscal cliff" talks, wondering how this thing will come down when it's all said and done. We continue to see the same games being played, and we are increasingly fed up with politics-as-usual in Washington. What America needs is less nonsense and more common sense, perhaps less intelligentsia and more intelligence. Howard Richman knows where to go to find these qualities we're looking for. He highlights Governor Palin's recent interview with Greta Van Susteren to make his points:
This November 30 interview with Sarah Palin restores my hope that there is intelligence left within the Republican Party
She's right that we're already over the fiscal cliff in that there's not going to be a painless way to bring down the budget deficits and prevent the collapse that will occur if they continue to grow, in proportion to GDP.
Sarah Palin has so much economic common sense. She's for:
* balanced budgets
* eliminating the corporate income tax
* balanced trade
* balanced monetary growth
That's precisely the recipe for stable economic growth with low unemployment. Too bad the rest of the Republican Party hasn't figured it out.
