House GOP is ignoring economy, too [Letter]

Peter Morici's blames President Barack Obama and the Federal Reserve for failure to avert a "brewing economic crisis" without even mentioning the Republican House's refusal to even consider the jobs bills and any proposals that would spur economic activity ("Another economic crisis is brewing," Nov. 19).

Professor Morici might at least note that each House refusal to spend, including even the chamber's stall of the Farm Bill that would force $40 billion in food stamp cuts, takes potential spending money from the middle class and poor, and continues the post-stimulus' four-year stall of anything that may help the economy.
