View Diary: Robert Reich Gets It Right (171 comments)

  •  My concern is that Obama has already opened (11+ / 0-)

    negotiations by repeatedly saying things like this during the campaign:

    "I've put forward a specific $4 trillion deficit reduction plan... And the way we do it is $2.50 for every cut, we ask for $1 of additional revenue."
    President Obama calls this a "balanced approach."

    Certainly, I like Robert Reich's plan -- and I'd love it if Obama followed Reich's advice.

    But given that Obama was touting his own "balanced approach" in a speech a mere four days ago, it seems to me that Obama has already identified his desired starting point -- which is way to the right of Reich.

    I hope Obama will prove me wrong.

    And thanks for the great diary, Slinkerwink.
