The New York Times has this brief item from Paul Krugman, Reasonable Republicans?
It’s kind of the “treason never prospers” argument (“for if it prospers, none dare call it treason”); if someone declares that tax cuts don’t pay for themselves, or that printing money when you’re in a liquidity trap isn’t deeply inflationary, or that fear of Obamacare isn’t holding the economy back, he ceases to be considered a member in good standing of the GOP. There are, therefore, no reasonable Republicans on these issues.
It doesn’t take long for Paul Krugman to explain why there are no reasonable Republics. The above excerpt is a substantial part of the entire article.
Thanks to RichardH for bringing this to my attention.
