Krugman: Extortionists Versus Con Men (the repub party and the debt ceiling)
Itís looking increasingly as if House Republicans wonít crash the world economy by refusing to raise the debt ceiling, at least not right now. Score a big one for the White House (provisionally); its bet that it wouldnít need a way to bypass the ceiling is looking like a winner (although it ainít over until the tanned guy cries).
That makes sense - the extortionists versus the con men. What a party the repubs have put together.
