President Obama, in words that remind you of the global warming debate, likes to claim that there is no disagreement from economists on the need for the big spending stimulus package making its way to his desk. He is wrong, of course, and surprisingly, the McClatchy news outlet – normally a reliable Obama propaganda outlet – says so here (via Stop The ACLU).
They’re a little late to the game in noticing this, as last month the Cato Institute placed an ad in several papers noting that 200 economists had signed a statement declaring that they do not supporting any big-spending stimulus plan. But hat’s off to McClatchy nevertheless. Better late than never.
