Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
and that is precisely why Republicans, and even wealthy Democrats such as Warren Buffet in today's Wall Street Journal, are either wary of or outright opposed to incurring large national debts to stimulate current spending.  Massive debt has only one possible, long term policy solution: raising taxes on the wealthy, which is why stimulus spending is really a transfer of wealth from the rich to the less rich. It's not a question of whether such transfer might happen. It already IS happening.
