From DC’s Deficit Panic to Flint’s Poisoned Water


From DC’s Deficit Panic to Flint’s Poisoned Water

Dean Baker

We know that the Washington Post editors really hate Bernie Sanders and rarely miss an opportunity to show it.


Milbank also ignores tens of trillions dollars taxpayers currently spend on corporate welfare, especially bail outs. Breaking up the banks and reducing other corporate welfare costs will free up those tens of trillions dollars to fund Bernie's proposals.

Sanders' plan to ditch TPP, TTIP and TISA will eliminate the risk of spending taxpayers' money on paying judgements from corporate tribunals for loss of anticipated corporate profits.

If Milbank's numbers reflected reality, a Clinton, Cruz or Ryan presidency would produce the numbers Milbank is calculating for President Sanders, while Sanders would actually reduce government spending.


Excellent article!
