    It is CONSERVATIVE policies that don't work. In Europe, those practicing the most austerity in their budgets are the ones in the most trouble. England is headed for a triple dip recession because Osbourne and his conservatives refuse to acknowledge the consequences of their policies.

    From Ronald Reagan on, the conservatives in this country have been busy cannibalizing what Keynesian policies under FDR and his successors achieved. They've taken the huge social capital that was invested in building a middle class and a progressive national investment in infrastructure, and they've been busy converting it into private gain for the few at the top.

    They cloak it in a twisted 'virtue' as they call for more sacrifice - but not out of their pockets. Ryan is a con man and a fraud.
