The current austerity fetish was never a good idea, and now we know it's bad politics, too.

The austerity kick in Washington is exactly the wrong thing at the wrong time. At a time of enormous economic duress, the government is tying its own hands, robbing itself of its most effective tool in periods of high unemployment and low demand -- spending.

Short Description: 
Here's an idea, Mr. President: try governing the way you campaigned. Or just try governing, period.

What's a progressive to do these days? A federal court has declared the "individual mandate" provision of the health care bill to be unconstitutional, making it nearly inevitable that the case will find its way to the Supreme Court.
