Are Republicans as stupid and anti-American as they seem to be? They claim we should cut back on government spending and for a while pointed to Europe and especially England as the way to go.

That policy is a massive failure wherever it has been tried.

Conservatives laughed off criticism of austerity, but it’s clear they were wrong.” Check out the rest of the story by clicking on the link below.
