“Paul Krugman asked this question the other day in The New York Times. His answer: parties matter a lot more than candidates, and if a Democrat is elected you can be sure of four things:
Support for maintaining all major entitlement programs and resistance to any major reform.
Support for maintaining high taxes on high-income Americans.
Keeping the current financial reform regulations.
More action on global warming.
This is one of the very few times when I actually agree with Krugman. But he didn’t go far enough. What would we expect if any of the three dozen potential Republican candidates were elected?” – John C. Goodman
