  •  Krugman was on Starting Point on CNN (12+ / 0-)

    yesterday or Monday (can't remember which) debating Marcia Blackburn on the deficit and the notion of draconian cuts - he did a very good job of explaining why the cuts will be damaging to the economy.  

    It was probably the most lucid explanation I've seen in a few short sentences about what threat the sequester cuts hold for the economy and why.

    Would have been even more interesting if that debate had taken place today after the news of the economic contraction.

    •  Mr. Krugman has been proven right time and again. (6+ / 0-)

       The time has come to utilize his sound advise, relegating the deficit worries to the back burner, as it's a long-range, not an immediate concern, and solve the problem in front of us.

         This is the time as the Teahadist reign of foolishness is over so we can now talk about immigration reform, common sense gun control, global climate change, etc.
          Common sense economics need to be back out in the open again as well.
