  • Paul Krugman accidentally makes the case against big government

    Paul Krugman wants us all to know that the recent tax cuts didn't quite work out like we were told they would. That's possible, obviously, but the reason he gives isn't that they were the wrong tax cuts.

Thus no legislator, let alone public commentator, was able to say what was really going on. Thus Krugman wants to correct it to be something more sensible.
