The Dangers of “Crying Wolf” in Washington

Another interesting piece posted over at the Daily Beast by “friend of the blog” and political guru Joe McLean. Here, Joe argues that one reason we’ve come so  dangerously close to a debt default is because of how often both parties have exaggerated the risks of previous potential “catastrophes,” therefore leading to a dangerous atmosphere of complacency – e.g., “It wasn’t so bad last time – so why panic?” (How many times have you heard people make that argument about the Sequester or earlier government shutdowns, for example?)

Some ideas well worth considering as the clock continues to tick…
