Listen up, sisters! Deficit hawks will eat your lunch, your kids, your jobs and your retirement.
An economy without a deficit is like a fish without water. Reducing the U.S. federal deficit will make unemployment and poverty worseway worse. And that means that womens economic condition will deteriorate even further.
Todays deficit hawks (and way too many Democrats are flying with this flock), fundamentally and deliberately misinform by insisting on a fictional symmetry between private sector (household and corporate) bookkeeping and the U.S. federal debt.

So if deficits don't matter, why tax at all? And has this person seen what happened in Zimbabwe?
This is what feminists really believe? Because it's really removed from reality.
I think this article can best be summed up by three words:
MATH IS HARD
Her motto is “Charge it”!!!!
I don’t understand how a person this stupid can even use a keyboard.
“So if deficits don’t matter, why tax at all?”
I believe in their minds, taxing the wealthy has nothing to do with the deficit. Their objective is to redistribute the wealth to the poor through increased spending.
Is this for real?
This is what the world looks like to people who wear glasses that are missing one lens. They only see half the picture (namely the half that looks at actual value created, as opposed to only looking at money.
Afraid so. Here is the bio of the authoress:
Susan F. Feiner is director of Women and Gender Studies at the University of Southern Maine, Portland Maine, and professor of economics. Feiner is editor or co-editor of several books including Race and Gender in the American Economy, Radical Economics, and Out of the Margins. Her most recent book Liberating Economics: feminist perspectives on families, words and globalization (University of Michigan Press) was named an "Outstanding Academic Title" by Choice Magazine. She has published widely in several fields including economic education, the political economy of slavery, and feminist economics. Her publications appear on journals including Gender and Society, The Journal of Economic Education, The Cambridge Journal of Economics, and Feminist Economics. She received her PhD in economis from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, Massachusetts USA.
That’s all you need to know.
I wonder how many graduates with degrees in Women and Gender Studies are actually employed today? BTW shouldn’t that be “Womyn”?
This woman is missing both lenses, and she has patches over both eyes.
No wonder feminism isn't catching on.
There are WAY too many woman that can actually think!
” Deficits are a Grrrls Best Friend “
How *interesting* (in a freudian slip sense) that the author should choose to misquote the song title “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” - which was sung by Marylin Monroe (the ‘anti-feminist’) in the movie “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”.....
Ms. Magazine: stalwart defender of women dehumanized by islam everywhere. Hear them roar?
Exactly and I’m one also. I can count and do math and know that just because I have mor checks does not mean I can keep writing them....

“An economy without a deficit is like a fish without water.”
I think she meant bicycle, not water.
Wewll my cat can use a keyboard and probably makes more sense than this one does at times....
