Get Serious on the Impending Bankruptcy


From my most recent NRO article, on the challenges facing Washington’s new leaders: “The approaching expiry date of the tax cuts and the midterm elections were an opportunity for a serious discussion — or, as the current political cliché decrees, ‘a national conversation’ — about taxes, the budgetary and current-account deficits, unemployment, and the recession. The political class funked it, as it has funked everything except welfare reform in the last 20 years.”
