In the March 20 issue of the NY Times, Krugman's column titled, "Trillion Dollar Fraudsters" appeared in the Times. Now I'm pretty sure Krugman is not following our lead here, but his conclusion that what is happening is trillions of dollars being transferred from the poor and the working class into the pockets of the rich.
That, of course, is pretty much what this blog has been harping on for these last three years. To read Krugman's column just click on the following:
Trillion Dollar Fraudsters,
The far Right, under the guidance of the Koch Brothers has been working this mission for many years. Of course Krugman does not mention the Kochs in his column. However he does note that the Republicans are behaving far more brazenly than they have in recent years. That brazenness is directly attributable to the ownership of the Republican Party by the Kochs and their fellow right-wing billionaires.
For instance, we have long claimed that the multi-trillion dollar tax cuts from Reagan and Bush were simply transfers of those huge sums away from our own public service funds into the pockets of the rich. I do not doubt that Ronnie and Georgie were led by the nose in making those tax cuts.
Under their heroic guise of saving money
They are fully intent on stealing our money
And flattening our government into uselessness
