"60 Minutes" Hops on the Bandwagon

It's hard to describe our current budget picture in 10 minutes or less...we understand that challenge. But it would've been nice if Sunday's 60 Minutes piece hadn't jumped so fully in lock-step behind the administration's "we can't afford our seniors" line. While Comptroller General David Walker acknowledged the critical role that skyrocketing healthcare costs play in all of this, the discussion of tax cuts and deficit spending were, once again, glossed over.

Dean Baker at the Center for Economic and Policy Research wrote a terrific post about it last night.
