Paul Krugman says it all in just one paragraph

I wish everyone could read or hear just this, the lead paragraph of Krugman's column today:

" If President Obama is re-elected, health care coverage will expand dramatically, taxes on the wealthy will go up and Wall Street will face tougher regulation. If Mitt Romney wins instead, health coverage will shrink substantially, taxes on the wealthy will fall to levels not seen in 80 years and financial regulation will be rolled back."

5. It does sum it pretty well...

However, people are brain-washed to think that "health coverage will shrink substantially, taxes on the wealthy will fall to levels not seen in 80 years and financial regulation will be rolled back" as a good thing.

Dumb, but that is what you get when you're dealing with a cult.
