Krugman on regressive zombies
See his article here. He calls the regressive Presidential candidate's idea zombies because ever after repeatedly being proven wrong they just won't die. Facts just do not make a dent in their ideology, which always trumps reality. One wants to raise the social security and Medicare eligibility age to 69, which would devastate millions. And yet doing so would save relatively money compared to the abundant money generated from making the rich and corporations pay their fair share of taxes. The regressives have made many dire predictions about the Affordable Care Act, none of which have come true, often quite to the contrary. Supply-side, trickle down economics is still being touted by these dimwits despite a long history proving that it only works to create increasing income inequality. These folks just cannot see reality despite the facts in front of them.
