    We should not engage in austerity right now, or ever for that matter. We need stimulus and we need to print the dollars to pay for it. We need to stop worrying about a balanced budget, we need to stop talking about Revenue. The Internal Revenue Service is so wrong it hurts. Krugman is coming this way fast. He is all for stimulus and he is really strong against austerity. He isn't all the way to forgetting about the debt, but he will get there by the end of next year. I have been watching him and reading everything he has written and said on TV. I think he is rethinking the traditional view on government debt. There is no such thing as government debt. It is crazy.
