Warrren Mosler in CT
Hartford Courant gives some coverage to the candidate's debate for CT Senate:
Mosler, a businessman who says he has collected more than 11,000 signatures in his effort to secure a spot on the November ballot, said he favors a federal payroll tax holiday as a way to get the economy started again. He is also proposing providing unemployed Americans with an $8-an-hour job to help them transition back to the workforce.
Now ask yourselves why the legacy parties don't offer a Jobs Guarantee.
The answer is that they don't believe in it, because a Washington Consensus-style policy of permanently higher unemployment has complete bipartisan support in Versailles. And that's why the legacy parties deserve to be destroyed, and I hope the candidacy of Mosler and others like him gets that done as soon as possible.
