HOW ARE YOU GOING TO CONVINCE PEOPLE REAGANISM IS A FAILURE...:

All the President’s Zombies (PAUL KRUGMAN, 8/24/09, NY Times)

The debate over the “public option” in health care has been dismaying in many ways. Perhaps the most depressing aspect for progressives, however, has been the extent to which opponents of greater choice in health care have gained traction — in Congress, if not with the broader public — simply by repeating, over and over again, that the public option would be, horrors, a government program.

Washington, it seems, is still ruled by Reaganism — by an ideology that says government intervention is always bad, and leaving the private sector to its own devices is always good.


...when it even held made the Second Great Depression so short and shallow?
