Quote of the Day: Bruce Bartlett Edition
I am Facebook friends and a Twitter follower of economist Bruce Bartlett. I am not a bit surprised by Bartlett's contempt for the tea party. Bartlett is viewed as a conservative. However, Bartlett has been blasting the GOP establishment and the tea party for years. Bartlett is a wonk who cares about policy. The current conservative movement denies basic scientific facts and proposes economic policies that neither stimulate job creation or create a fiscal surplus. Bartlett is even defending Paul Krugman from conservatives. Bartleet's quote came from an appearance on MSNBC.
