Heidi Is Not Impressed

Heidi N. Moore has lots to say—and nothing good—about the fiscal cliff deal (“deal”) passed by the Senate early Tuesday morning: “So, after a day, and week, and year filled with manufactured drama, the US Senate not only failed its only goal – reducing the US deficit – but also built a mountain range out of the molehill of budget talks.”

And if you’re in the mood for more good (“good”) news, her piece about the longterm unemployed and how a real deal likely wouldn’t help them anyway is a doozy (“The predicament of the long-term unemployed only has a passing relationship to the fiscal cliff. There happens to be no one in the government who can put their hand up and protect the unemployed”).
