Another consensus? Oh really?

The forces of deficit spending - the stimulators - have lifted a page from the global warming alarmist's handbook. Instead of arguing against their opponents, they just pretend they don't exist.

Global warming alarmists have proclaimed the there is a consensus - everyone believes we're heading to global warming Armageddon. Never mind that it's not true.

The stimulators are doing the same thing! Steven Harper himself said, "there is a consensus ... a strong consensus, that all governments need to spend ... we've heard that everywhere."

But a Cato Institute ad in the New York Times showed that wasn't the case at all. Economists, including Nobel laureates, disagree with deficit spending to stimulate the economy. The best economic stimulus is tax cuts and reducing the burden of government.
