WTF is up with Alan Greenspan???
Advertisements [?]
He comes out and says we have to return to 'pay-as-you-go', and we all know Bush's now-famous rhetoric about said policy. Then...THEN he says we should make Bush's tax cuts permanent even though it would add 1.8 trillion to the national deficit. He seemed cool during the Clinton admin, overseeing the longest sustained economic growth in American history(Reaganites hate that fact, and often deny it) but I'm starting to wonder. What is his agenda? Is he in someone's pocket? What the hell is going onwith this guy? He arguably is the most powerful man on the planet, even more so than any war mongering C-In-C since he harnesses the economic might of the American machine. Does anyone have any useful info or a straight opinion on this guy? I'm not sure what to think.
