The magical world of voodoo ‘economists’

Steven Pearlstein

If you came up with a bumper sticker that pulls together the platform of this year’s crop of Republican presidential candidates, it would have to be:

Repeal the 20th century. Vote GOP.

It’s not just the 21st century they want to turn the clock back on — health-care reform, global warming and the financial regulations passed in the wake of the recent financial crises and accounting scandals.

These folks are actually talking about repealing the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and the Environmental Protection Agency, created in 1970s.

Etc., etc.

What’s next — repeal of quantum physics?

Well yeah. Science, you know. A communist, or worse liberal, attack on the Bible and our God-given right to be ignorant!

... but I couldn’t help noticing that neither Mitt Romney nor Perry thought to exclude the thousands of government jobs included in their calculations — the kinds of jobs they and their fellow Republicans now view as economically illegitimate.

Hypocrisy, thy name is "Republican".
