Paul Krugman writes about the folly of those leaders and economists who don't follow economic theory, or, to put it more bluntly, common common sense.

One good thing for the financial elites is the unemployment rate spiked up.

Color me skeptical about the state of Obama's health:

On April 2, as the White House and Congress flexed their
muscles over cuts to Social Security and Medicare, sequestration,
austerity, Obama shocked the press and Congress by unveiling
the $100 million Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative
Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) project to map the human brain.
As Obama was putting the finishing touches on cuts to Social
Security and Medicare for Americans already experiencing
sequestration cuts for cancer treatment, he pulls brain
mapping literally out of a hat to the bewilderment of many.

In proposing the BRAIN project, Obama said, "As humans,
we can identify galaxies light years away. We can study
particles smaller than an atom. But we still haven’t
unlocked the mystery of the three pounds of matter
that sits between our ears."

However, the rumor of a tumor is wafting around Washington.
That is, the incredibly vain Obama wants to find a cure for
brain cancer because he has been diagnosed with a malignant
tumor. The evidence mainly cited involves the president's
faltering basketball game.

I'll just consider the source.
