Quote Of The Day

“This is sort of impressive:  Paul Krugman simultaneously castigates Republicans for the fiscal irresponsibility of wanting to extend tax cuts for the rich that cost about $700 billion–and for irresponsibly threatening the extension of tax cuts for the middle class which cost three times as much.  Yet you could read the entire column and not realize that it’s the middle class tax cuts which are the really expensive, budget-busting bit.” — Megan McArdle

  • This isn’t really so difficult to understand. Krugman is frankly not overly concerned by the national debt, but even so, he doesn’t see the point in needlessly adding to it. He sees the upper class tax cuts as a needless expense – the middle class tax cuts, not so much. And that pretty much explains it.
