Krugman slams Romney advisor: Truth on Ryan’s ‘fraud’ plan is ‘anti-bipartisan’
New York Times columnist Paul Krugman once again slammed Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R) budget Sunday morning, chastising Mitt Romney’s advisor Eric Fehrnstrom for firmly standing behind it.
“The plan’s a fraud,” Krugman said. “The plan is a big bunch of tax cuts, some specified spending cuts, basically for poor people, and then a huge magic asterisk which is supposed to turn into a deficit reduction plan, but, in fact, if you look what’s actually in it, it’s a deficit-increasing plan.”
“And so to say that, just tell the truth that there is really no plan there, neither from Ryan, nor from Governor Romney, is just the truth,” he said. “If that’s being harsh and partisan, gosh, then I guess the truth is anti-bipartisanship.”
