Professor Eric Lindgren Comments on Proposed Spending Freeze

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

In anticipation of the State of the Union address, political science professor Eric Lindgren comments on President Barack Obama's proposed three-year federal spending freeze for the Spanish-language daily La Opinion

"In reality it does not sound like a good idea; freezing spending is not something you should do in a recession. Government spending helps reactivate the economy and I believe that it has helped the country, in particular minority communities."
