Angrybear readers have long enjoyed the comments from Elaine Supkis – so by “new gal”, I’m referring to her new blog:
The Bush people plug in numbers hoping to fool people. They admit, if you corner them, their formulas will cause real economic pain…for the working class. They won’t admit that this will be a Fatted Goose for the rich executives! This entire enterprise is basically a looting expedition. Frantic attempts at fooling workers into thinking they will get a four trillion dollar free lunch is saddening.
She has the right to poke fun at us economists for all our formulae given that she can state my #1 reason for opposing Bush’s Social Security deform in four sentences without a single equation! Elaine – so well put!
