Krugman: So Much for Obamacare Not Working

Krugman: So Much for Obamacare Not Working – http://huff.to/1qiBoSb

Krugman is entertaining and on point as usual.

One of the most striking pieces of nonsense that I hear about US politics is that the Republicans are driven by an Ayn Rand ideology.  Nothing could be further than the truth.

I just saw the first half of the movie version of Atlas Shrugged, which is fairly faithful to the spirit of the book, and it is quite striking how closely the Republicans resemble Ayn Rand’s villains.

Yes, they have taken a page from her, the villain role of opposing science, opposing facts, and if the facts are against them, they make up new ones that are demonstrably false and which they know are false- just like Rand’s villains.
