Hood’s expectations

If you haven’t read John Hood’s column this morning, do so. It is a thorough j’accuse of the completely irresponsible leadership of our nation by the president, his party’s Senate, and the “opposition” party’s House. Here’s how it begins, and it keeps up that blistering pace throughout:

In response to four years of massive federal deficits, tax cuts scheduled to expire this month, and lackluster economic growth, the brilliant Barack Obama and the equally brilliant (except in the president’s mind) leaders of Congress managed to make a last-minute deal that added to the federal deficit, allowed the tax burden to rise on virtually every American household, and made robust, long-term economic growth less likely.
