When it comes to the economy, no one likes bad news—no one, that is, except for liberal politicians. Why? Because liberals rely on bad news to sell their policies of choice. In fact, their whole approach to the economy is almost entirely predicated on it. From health care to social security to global warming, their number one tactic is to appeal to anxiety, fear, and worry. It's in their political interests to convince the public that things are bad, very bad—and probably going to get worse.
