Krugman admits death panels and tax increases are coming
Paul Krugman is a pompous, disingenuous ass and the very personification of the term “useful idiot.”
This is the same Paul Krugman that spent months railing against the notion that taxes were going to rise and pooh-poohed the very thought of death panels in the humorously-named “Affordable Care Act” (aka Obamacare).
He vociferously trashed anyone who brought up either tax increases or death panels over the past several years as fringe, right-wing malcontents and lunatics. But earlier this week he admitted that something like death panels were going to have to be put in place in the near future to control spiking health care costs. He also clearly stated that taxes increases on the middle class would have to be put in place. (News flash for Mr. Krugman – those tax increases have already started.)
