300 Economists Warn Obama: Grave Danger Ahead
Thursday, 09/16/2010 - 2:37 pm by Bryce Covert

Three hundred economists released a letter to President Obama today with one message: focus on jobs, not on the deficit. Robert Borosage, co-director of the Institute for Americas Future and one of the authors of the statement, said the letter is a call for action on the economy and a return to economic common sense in a conference call with the media this morning. This is not the time for balancing the budget and slashing the deficit, he pointed out; rather, it is the time for bold initiatives to rebuild America and to generate jobs and growth.

But WTF would anybody outside the elite insiders' bubble know?
