[October 16, 2013. Now that the Democrats have locked in a Republican budget through January and put the Grand Bargain on the front burner again, it's time to stick this one again! By popular demand... --lambert]
[August 17, 2010. Guess it's time to move this one up again. Obama calls for "shared sacrifice". Who's doing the sacrificing, and who's doing the sharing? --lambert]
The administration is become more and more out front about the economy never improving (except for CEOs, banksters, and their weasel shills in DC, for whom life always improves):
GEITHNER: [W]e [who?] have to do that if we're going to bring these deficits under control. But to do that we have to have some shared sacrifice.
Geithner gave a somber assessment of the economy, saying that "it's going to take a long time still" before many Americans feel that a recovery is under way. "This is still a very tough economy. For a lot of people [subhumans], it's going to feel very hard — harder than anything they've experienced in a lifetime now — for some time to come."
And in "some time to come," we're all dead. It's the new normal, peasants. Get used to it.
Then go die.
