Krugman Shouts Out Nick Beaudrot, Former JRE Supporter
Here is the flow diagram by Nick that Krugman thinks simplifies what the current plan for health insurance reform should do:
This makes perfect sense to me as it did to Paul Krugman.
Nick and I were bloggers together for the JRE campaign in 2007 until JRE suspended the campaign in late Jan 2008. I sent Nick a SMS to congratulate him on this shout-out.
I wonder if Krugman knew that Nick was a JRE supporter, especially as Krugman always thought JRE's health care proposals were the most progressive amongst the major candidates. I didn't ask Nick if he was personally acquainted with Krugman. Figured that was not my business.
Now, if Obama would only sell the diagram to Blue Dogs and the hijackers on the Senate Finance Committee. Max Baucus, are you listening?
