Call Me Unreasonable

This from over at Crooks and Liars:


Call me unreasonable.

I will happily wrap myself in the mantle of being an unreasonable person as long as Washington DC elites with six- and seven-figure portfolios dare to tell me that I need to be "reasonable," while

Lifting the FICA cap is off the table;
The idea of lowering the minimum age for SSI qualification is not even discussed;
Refusing to acknowledge that austerity does not work, ever;
Not admitting that Social Security itself does not impact the deficit;
Negotiating Medicare drug prices is not part of a cost-saving package;
Cutting corporate subsidies is a non-starter;
Our top marginal tax rate is the lowest it's been since the '30s; and
Beltway denizens who cheered off-the-book wars and tax cuts, insisting that deficits don't matter, are now screaming that the deficit is the *MOST* important thing this country, over jobs, poverty, income inequality, discrimination, gun safety, and the sad fact that they are relegating more than a few grandmothers to eating catfood.

Yup, if that is what's considered "reasonable" thinking about the problems this country faces, then damn it, call me unreasonable.


Here! Here! Call me unreasonable too! Sums it up nicely. Spread this around.
