11/15 Mattea Kramer, The Fiscal Cliff Myth

November 15, 2012

The National Priorities Project’s Mattea Kramer explained the biggest misconceptions Americans have about the federal budget, what makes up most of the federal budget, why now is a great time for infrastructure investment, the best ways to deal with the deficit, why the fiscal cliff is a myth and some predictions on budget negotiations.

On the Better Half: Matt Bai writes something stunningly disingenuous and Sam nails him on it, the fiscal cliff is a bait and switch, Mitt Romney still a massive A-Hole and the head of the Maine Republican Party proves the GOP isn’t just racist in the South.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
