Panem et Circenses

Bread and circuses! Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-PA) feels that the Democrats have a lock on the moocher vote. He says that the unemployed will vote D in order to keep their benefits coming.

Is this why the Democrats are holding to policies that slow down the recovery?

Is it November yet?

UPDATE–NPR takes up the cause of slow growth being a good thing. (H/T, Hot Air) Their expert doesn’t seem to understand the difference between the fake growth of an asset bubble (e.g., housing in America a few years ago or tulips centuries ago in Holland) and the real growth resulting from productive economic activity.
