Sanctimonious Deficit Hawks Target Social Safety Net
They come off as so reasonable, so high-minded, so balanced in their thinking.
They are the pillars of the Washington establishment, and they were everywhere you looked at Wednesday’s gala “Fiscal Summit” organized by corporate-takeover mogul Peter G. Peterson’s eponymous foundation. (C-SPAN has it all on video.)
Listen to them and they will tell you how troubled — how very, profoundly troubled — they are by the nation’s rising debt and dangerous fiscal path. They will tell you very self-righteously how you should be troubled, too. And they will tell you that, fortunately, they know — in fact, “everybody knows” — what is best for all of us.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
