Krugman on the regressive budget
See his recent piece here. Bottom line: Both the House and Senate GOP budgets make rich people richer, and the middle class and the poor poorer. Of course if they admitted this no one would support them, even their rabid idiotic base. So they lie about their agenda. Their budget actually increases the federal deficit by several trillion dollars in the first decade. It drastically cuts food stamps and Medicaid, while repealing Obamacare and giving further tax breaks to the rich. All under insidiously planned spin to couch it in 'fiscal responsibility' and 'government waste' etc. They lie, cheat and steal from everyone else to give to the rich, Robin Hood in reverse. If people can't see what they doing and continue to vote for these crooks they get what they deserve.
