Good Krugman, Bad Krugman
Now, the pass-the-thing people could be wrong. Maybe hopes of improving the new health care system over time, the way Social Security has been improved, will prove to have been fantasies; or maybe rejecting this bill and trying again, a strategy that has failed many times in the past, would work this time. But itís a carefully thought-out, honest position. And arriving at that position has, in my case at least, required a lot of agonized soul-searching.
I am not sure I agree with Krugman, and he really offers me nothing substantive here to help me make up my mind, but I appreciate his acceptance that it does not require being "batsh*t crazy" to disagree. But now comes Bad Krugman:
And maybe Iím being unfair, but I donít seem to see the same degree of soul-searching on the other side. Too much of what I read seems to come from people who havenít really faced up to what it will mean for progressive hopes ó not to mention Americaís uninsured ó if health care reform crashes and burns, yet again.
Unfair is not the word for it. Just plain stupid actually. There are agonizers and un-agonizers on both sides. Bad Krugman.
Speaking for me only
