  •  Krugman is right. The thing that scares me (6+ / 0-)

    is that politicians are incapable of debating these issues in the terms that Krugman discusses them.

    The conservatives must be defeated to prevent a neo-feudal corporate oligarchy.  But that is just the first step.  We must find some way to turn the national conversation to discussing the real long term economic issues the country faces.  Just having a some columnists and bloggers talking about such issues is not enough.  Politicians with the power to make policy must be honestly considering the long term economic issues around the safety net.  We need politicians who think the safety net is a good thing, and start trying to figure out how to make it work more effectively as permanent institutions.
