Paul Krugman is so good at telling it like it is:
"From the beginning, I argued that the American Recovery and Reinvestment
Act, a k a the Obama stimulus plan, was too small. Nonetheless,
reasonable estimates suggest that around a million more Americans are
working now than would have been employed without that plan a number
that will grow over time and that the stimulus has played a significant
role in pulling the economy out of its free fall.
"All in all, then, the government has played a crucial stabilizing role
in this economic crisis. Ronald Reagan was wrong: sometimes the private
sector is the problem, and government is the solution.
"And arent you glad that right now the government is being run by people
who dont hate government?
"We dont know what the economic policies of a McCain-Palin
administration would have been. We do know, however, what Republicans in
opposition have been saying and it boils down to demanding that the
government stop standing in the way of a possible depression."
OK, ready for return fire...
