What goes unacknowledged in the Paul Krugman desire to see more stimulus spending is the poor use of the funds.
Krugman's Sunday effort blasted the Senate for failing to pass further stimulus in the form of unemployment benefits. "We’re facing a coalition of the heartless, the clueless and the confused," he lamented.Obama didn't fight for a good stimulus package.... he didn't even fight for a bigger stimulus. If the stimulus is so important, why did he let congress do whatever it wanted so he could move on quickly to driving up the cost of government with the Universal Health Care law? The government hasn't earned another stimulus, even if Krugman is correct that one is needed.
