  1. Laffer AND Kudlow? We’re doomed.

    • Wow… just… everything is an opportunity to further your ideologies now… let’s not worry about dealing with the actual issues…

      • Did you read what Laffer is proposing as fix? Trickle-down didn’t work for most Americans in the ’80s and it’s not going to work for them on the other side of this.

      • And speaking of issues, does moral hazard on a massive scale and bailouts for Wall Street — again and, this time, to the tune of $7-$8 trillion — count?

  2. “If you tax people who work and you pay people who don’t work, you will get less people working,” Laffer said. “If you make it more unattractive to be unemployed, then there’s an incentive to go look for another job faster.”

    Sigh

  3. How many idiots (that all support the stable Buffon (J)enius can we get together to make sure whatever the virus doesn’t kill in the economy, the policies will.

  4. That raises the question…when the stable buffoon is no longer in office what will happen to all the idiots he employs?? (And does anyone really care?)
