Letter to the Editor | Column not so funny

January 17, 2014 

I read Paul Krugman’s column occasionally because I love a good belly laugh once in a while.

Krugman suggests (“GOP is enemy of the poor,” Wednesday) that those dirty, mean, evil, nasty Republicans are at it again. They are preventing the expansion of Medicaid to millions of poor.

They are doing this even though it wouldn’t cost anything, because Washington would pick up the tab.

Oh, please!

Maybe Krugman knows of a magical entity that creates money and sends it to Washington without having to levy any taxes on anyone.

Keep me laughing, Paul.
