The House Budget Committee report, “The Debt Overhang and the U.S. Jobs Malaise”, cites prominent economists that have both challenged the discredited economic assumptions made to bolster the case for Keynesian stimulus efforts, and lauded the House-passed budget as “good news for economic growth.”
