The GOP is supposed to be the party of business and conservatism. why then do they want us to collpase like Greece?

This is a snippet from Robert Borosage, President of Institute for America's Future. Take a good look at Europe -- bloody riots in Athens and Madrid, rising unemployment, spreading poverty and suicide, and a deepening recession -- because the current American elite consensus bizarrely wants to drive America down that same path.

Europe's miseries come from imposing austerity before recovering from the recession caused by the financial collapse. Conservatives in Germany and England inflicted harsh measures to enforce budget discipline -- hiking taxes and cutting spending.

In the U.S., the Obama recovery plan and the deal with Republicans over extending the Bush tax cuts combined to limit and slow the imposition of austerity. The result: Europe is sinking, while the U.S. economy retains slow but halting growth.

But now the deficit hawks are gearing up for another run at driving the U.S. back into economic recession.

Certainly, we have to be serious about getting our books in order. The wealthy and the corporations should pay more so we can afford the investments we need. But the overwhelming source of our long-term budget woes comes from projections of soaring health care costs. If we paid for health care at the rate other industrial countries do (with better results), we would be projecting surpluses, not deficits.

But right now, the focus should be on putting people back to work and getting the economy moving. Until that happens, austerity -- as Europe is now experiencing -- is a contagion, not a cure
