Santelli vs Liesman

Rick Santelli, who inspired the Tea Party movement, goes nuts on CNBC, especially against his usual sparring partner Steve Liesman.

While I appreciate Santelli's arguments being given a public forum, nobody, including him, is arguing as follows: "Yes, without government stimulus, unemployment might well have reached 25%, but that's the inevitable price to pay to get out of this recession, and in the long run, we would have been better off for it."
