Markets starting to see ‘lunatic’ fiscal policies coming out of White House: Moore

Economist Stephen Moore discusses the markets’ reaction to the Biden administration’s "lunatic" fiscal policies during an appearance on "Varney & Co." Monday, saying he’s "a little more pessimistic" about the country’s economic recovery amid Democrats' big spending push.

But I'm a little more pessimistic now. I think the markets are starting to see how lunatic these fiscal policies are that are coming out of the White House.
