On an economic question, if you’re on one side and both Paul Krugman and Tyler Cowen are on the other, it’s a good bet that you’re not merely wrong, but grossly, obviously, stupidly, and immorally wrong. (I say “immorally” because no one is likely to make this sort of mistake without being blinded to the facts by ill-will. Not a single Democrat, for example, voted for this abomination, but only 15 Republicans voted against it.) Yes, I know that doing mean, stupid things to hurt poor people is business as usual for you folks. But targeting Food Stamps (alias SNAP)? Srsly?
Are you really so in love with “Margaret Thatcher, milk snatcher” that you want to imitate even her blunders? Or do you think that your voters are so much more degraded morally than voters in the UK that you can actually get away with this kind of crap?
