Republicans hindered efforts to end the recession

This is an outstanding column which explains how Republicans hindered efforts to end the recession.

The last paragraph: “So if you want to understand why the great slump that began in 2008 went on so long, blighting so many American lives, the answer is politics. Specifically, policy failed because cynical, bad-faith Republicans were willing to sacrifice millions of jobs rather than let anything good happen to the economy while a Democrat sat in the White House.”
