I am publishing an e book via Kindle Direct Publishing in August, 2011 titled Balancing the Budget is a Progressive Priority. The book offers a comprehensive vision for a long range balanced budget. In doing so, it focuses on the next steps needed to address health care cost inflation, which is a necessary, but not a sufficient condition to ever developing a sustainable federal budget. I will not be blogging much about the book here at TIE since it is much more of a direct political argument than what we typically do here at TIE. However, if you like my blogging, you may be interested in the book, which I will be writing about at my old blog.
