Greenspan Testimony Highlights Bush Plan for Deliberate Federal Bankruptcy

If you think Bush is a tool of corporate interests already, consider the evidence fora deliberate Republican strategy to bankrupt the government and prompt privatization of most of its functions, says Michael Meurer.

“Visit the websites of any of the major right wing think tanks from which this administration has drawn its highest officials, and you will find entire sections of archived documents and books arguing the case for privatization of nearly the entire public sector.

From the American Enterprise Institute to the Heritage Foundation, from the Hoover Institution to the Cato Institute to the Reason Foundation, privatization has been a prime objective of the right for the past 25 years. The National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) even provides a handy list of potential targets for privatization.” —truthout
