Quote of the week - Paul Krugman
" . . . the fearmongers are unmoved: fighting deficits, they insist, must take priority over everything - everything, that is, except tax cuts for the rich, which must be extended, no matter how much red ink they create.
The point is that a large part of Congress, large enough to block any action on jobs, cares a lot about taxes on the richest 1 percent of the population, but very little about the plight of Americans who can't find work."
Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize winning economist
