Mr. Hayes's fork in the beast that is devouring the nation's economy seems to have three prongs, but it really has only one. Eliminating the Bush tax cuts is the only prong available in reality. Ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is not going to happen—not to curb the deficit. Restoring growth is not a governmental act as is fiscal legislation. It is a desired outcome. Thus, I count only one prong—not adequate, in my view.
