Reagan, The Zombie

Paul Krugman in the NYT:

Call me naïve, but I actually hoped that the failure of Reaganism in practice would kill it. It turns out, however, to be a zombie doctrine: even though it should be dead, it keeps on coming.

Let’s talk for a moment about why the age of Reagan should be over.

Reagan's presidency and his alliance with that other fiend, Margaret Thatcher, have laid the groundwork for the destruction of the middle class which rages on to this day. So, yes, Prof. Krugman, let's talk about it, please. You are in an influential position to pull the wool off America's eyes. Do it, at every opportunity.
