10. No matter how you slice it, both plans are "Third Way" (read: for profit) hybrids
Edited on Wed Dec-05-07 02:24 PM by Romulox
It's just silly for Krugman to attempt to administer a ideological purity test (and accuse a group of being "right leaning", no less!), when he aligns himself with of the Clintonista/DLC/Third Way faction of the party with regard to economic issues.

"Free trade", support for globalization, and for-profit healthcare ain't exactly the stuff of firebrand lefty populism, after all! :rofl:
