Sad but probably true.  People have been emotionally hustled into thinking that government by definition equals "waste, fraud and abuse".  Of course that's in no small part to the constant NeoCon/Neoliberal repetition of it over and over, every chance they get thus (in the minds of many) making it truth.  

 

This is what austerity is and looks like, however the US (being the capital of marketing) has made appear to be a reasonable and responsible act that people should support, if they favor responsibility. 

 

.......and so the DE-Industrialization of the U.S. continues.

 

 

The subtle points around framing as well as the up coming political issues (where the same frame gets played and repeated).
