What austerity? What does that word mean to politicians?

European countries should ease off their austerity and adopt more growth-friendly policies, U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said Monday...

This coming from the country that has the highest corporate tax of any nation. This coming from the country that has regulations that dwarf those of other nations. This coming from a country that thinks it can spend it's way to prosperity.

But hey, if they want to fall for that advice, knock yourself out.

They (and the US) can’t possibly cut enough pure spending without causing massive economic recession/depression. Pro-growth and controlling future spending is the only way out. Now if Lew would just take his “pro-growth” message to his boss. Obama’s policies are stifling growth. 1-2% GDP growth is below the natural rate.

Austerity is the flashlight that when enacted, shines the light on just how entrenched and debilitating the welfare state has become.

started his first official trip to Europe with a meeting with EU Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso in Brussels. He was also meeting the EU's top economic and monetary official, Commissioner Olli Rehn and EU Council President Herman Van Rompuy.

First he has a meeting with a Marxist, then he meets with another commie and some fool with "the charisma of a damp rag and the appearance of a low grade bank clerk" (per Nigel Farage). I see a pattern there.
