Please Mr. Hartmann spend some time with the subject of the Federal Budget. People know SO little about it. Numbers are thrown around like candy and are just as empty of facts as nutrition. We need to understand this most basic area of what makes our government run. Both sides of the debate, and I am very progressive, don't have the "water cooler" facts or the time to educate ourselves. We need to have Robert Reich, Dean Baker, Dr. Ravi Batra explain the basics and the numbers. We are not going to find this in the media. Face Book is a great place to have conversations, but we have to have a foundation of understanding the issues of the budget. The other problem is finding web sites that don't skew the facts. Some of the names of these sites sound good, but in delving into them, they seem like they are right wing leaning. In a way because of the right wing lies, this needs to be hammered on constantly.
This is the foundation of what we are as a nation. It is our COVENANT of WE THE PEOPLE. thank you,
More Adults ARE needed.
