2/27 David Dayen: The Age of Austerity

February 27, 2013

David Dayen, explained how sequester cuts will impact the economy, how long it will take to feel the Sequester, the politics of the sequester, why the local media is doing a better job covering the sequester, the teachable moment the Obama Administration is missing, why a government shutdown maybe the best anti austerity strategy and how will the media cover budget cuts.

A stunning exchange between Piers Morgan and a Pizza shop owner who gives discounts to customers carrying guns and Bob Woodward is furious at Obama for not ignoring Congress.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
