Tweet of the Week: Daily Kos Founder Disses Spending Freeze
Posted By Brandon Stewart On January 28, 2010 @ 5:00 pm In Economics | Comments Disabled
On Tuesday, President Obama announced his plan  for a discretionary spending freeze, a plan he outlined in greater detail at the State of the Union. As we have outlined  throughout  the week , while a step in the right direction, this plan does little to provide the comprehensive reform of the federal budget that is so desperately needed.
After the freeze was announced, Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas, sent the following tweet to his followers:
@marcos: You don’t freeze spending, then spend. And if a program is “wasteful”, you eliminate it rather than freeze.
It goes without saying that when even the Daily Kos fails to find merit in the President’s proposals, the Administration needs to step back and reevaluate its policies.
