Is it me, or is her writing very hard to follow? What is a “pay for,” exactly?

polarbear4

afaik, a “pay for” is anything the government will pay for–war or M4A, cancelling student debt, not sure if they count tax breaks to corpses as “pay fors.” probably.

the problem being that both parties talk about it as if we actually “pay for” things with taxes, which we haven’t for a while. it’s not a budget like a household or even a state.

imho, she is so used to crossing her i’s and dotting her t’s, i think, bc so many experts pore through her work, looking for anything to discredit her with. so she can be a bit academic. The Deficit Myth seems more readable, but it’s not something i just breezed through. actually have a ways to go.

I didn’t see this thread until well after I published mine (mine was 3 min later). Thus, I have put my stuff back in the box and I will republish the post tomorrow.

@Bernin and @liepardestin, I wish there were a way to see who’s online at any given time. It would save some time and effort in order to avoid duplication.

I’m responding to Benny’s now removed post re the security guards being fired for cowardice at the attack of the Asian American woman. Amy did an excellent segment today in which she interviewed Victoria Law, Asian American author, on her book “Prisons Make Us Safer” and 20 other myths about mass incarceration. Her response at the end regarding the attack on the 65yo woman was spot on.

And was keeping a knee on his neck for over 9 minutes a form of murder?
