19. usually I think of him as being on our side

although he was seemingly a Hillary supporter during the primary.

He was calling for Obama to stand firm before the cliff, but that may have been concern about the spending side. Almost nobody seemed to be looking at the tax side - just taking it as a given that "keeping 78% of the Bush taxes" was a good deal. When the reality is that it was a deal that heavily favored the top 20% over the rest of us.

Krugman should know better.
