the bottom line

Krugman asks the $64,000 question.
"[W]ho is “the government”? It’s basically us, you know--the government spends money providing services to the public. Demanding that the government tighten its belt means demanding that we, the taxpayers, get less of those services. Why is this a good thing, even aside from the state of the economy?"

Everyone needs to take a deep breath and have a look around.
