The ridiculous effort by the market fundmentalists to rewrite history about FDR and the New Deal continues full steam ahead. There’s now a new book claiming that Roosevelt actually made things worse for Americans in the 1930s.

The only thing more absurd than the claims of the desperate and discredited Right is that they are taken seriously by some editorial pages and commentators who more worried about presenting “balance” than the truth.  

Charles McMillion with the Campaign for America’s Future has done an effective job exposing the myths of the right-wing revisionsists and he does it again this week [2], responding to a stunningly off base column in the Washington Post recently.

He has plenty of compelling things to say, but two charts he presents ought to put an end to the foolishness of the anti-FDR chorus once and for all.
