Krugman – “That’s cowardice on an epic scale”

Via: NYT

There’s actually a simple way to resolve the debt ceiling crisis: non-crazy Republican leaders could support something like the Reid plan — which is, let’s be clear, a huge victory for the right and defeat for progressives – and pass it with limited GOP support and overwhelming Democratic support.

Situation resolved.

This would, however, probably be the end of these Republicans’ political careers. And the answer is, so?

If you believe that default will quite possibly be a catastrophe – and leading Republicans probably do believe that – their unwillingness to take the action I’ve just described means that they are risking America’s future rather than pay a price in their personal political careers.

That’s cowardice on an epic scale, even if it’s the kind of behavior we take for granted nowadays.

personal thought:

‘Leading Republicans’, I would suggest are no longer, McConnell and Boehner; but are Bachmann and Fox News.

Man, are we screwed, or what?
