  •  Paul Krugman has given us actual numbers (7+ / 0-)

    NUMBERS! - regarding the amount of deficit reduction to be expected by "closing special interest loopholes and deductions, and what is meant by "broadening the base."  Neither of these terms have been defined by the GOP, and they have offered no numbers relative to deficit reduction to correspond with either of them.  This is a textbook definition of flim-flam.  Bowles' plan contains numbers, but the Republicans don't seem to want to publicize them.

    If nothing else, this should dissuade the president from considering Erskine Bowles as the next Sec. of Treasury.

    "In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican." - H. L. Mencken
