Quote of the Day: Yes, but what do you really think? Edition

by folkbum

From Tom Scocca, at Slate:
The fiscal disciplinarians are, in their own way, spiritual heirs to the eugenicists of a century ago, with their eye on the greater, collective good. The deficit and the debt bother them not so much morally as aesthetically: they are the budgetary result of the distasteful, ongoing presence of unnecessary and unproductive people.
I have spoiled the ending for you, but the whole thing is worth a read.
