How can Paul Krugman be so wrong about heathcare?
When I read Paul Krugman's New York Times column last Friday, my jaw dropped. He said: "Which brings me to the third myth: that health reform is fiscally irresponsible." He says it's OK because it would actually reduce the deficit.
And how does it reduce the deficit? By upping federal taxes, pushing more Medicaid costs off on to the states and by cutting federal funding for Medicare by $500 billion over 10 years.
