How many times does Merkel and other conservatives have to be told that austerity is not working. It’s comparable to the more than 4-decades long major line of BS that U.S. conservatives have feed the American public stating that a reduction in taxes for the rich will create jobs. Well, Republican conservatives have produced zero jobs in the past 10 years with their policies. This period includes the Bush tax cuts. The Congressional Research Service recent analysis proved this reality, but facts for conservatives become relative, and Republican senators forced the CRS to withdraw its report. Europe needs to confront conservationism, and its blind pursuit of austerity.
