When it comes to "the budget" the Corporate State controls the framing

This is why the mainstream information feed from TV and radio is all about austerity and "cliffs" and such.

The 2% don't dare talk about Keynesian Economics very much or that since interest rates are at historic lows this would be an opportune time for our government to borrow and stimulate the working-class, or about transferring military contractor spending to infrastructure rebuilding, or about a whole host of ideas rather than cutting us and protecting all of their tax rates be they loopholes, estate, capital, or top marginal rates.
