Obama’s Combative Save-My-Job Speech

Obama punted the heavy lifting to the super-committee, and pledged to introduce another general deficit plan in twelve days. How, or if, this will differ from his unanimously-defeated February budget, or his dreadful April deficit speech, is anybody’s guess. He does give us a big clue, though: It’s “basically the [same ideas] I’ve been advocating for months.” This likely means very modest changes to unsustainable entitlement programs and big tax hikes on the rich. Absolutely nothing new.
