Krugman on Paul Ryan's budget reboot speech:

Excerpted at Brad DeLong's blog. Of interest is this line from Ryan:
“the budget debate has degenerated into a game of green-eyeshade arithmetic”
That's rich, coming from a guy who tried to pull one over with happy words, as shown in the diagram below.


Three cheers for a diagram!!! It's the old uggabugga back from the grave!!!!!

Yup. Thanks for the comment. I'll see if I can do more of this going forward.

What's the point of a revenue-neutral plan when the government is bleeding red ink like a stuck pig?
