Obama poised to betray electorate - Krugman

Obama poised to betray electorate - Krugman 02 Oct 2012 Bowlesing Toward Betrayal By Paul Krugman Right after I warn about the risk that Democrats, including the president, might betray the mandate they seem likely to get for preserving the safety net, we learn that Senate leaders are at work on a plan based around, well, you guessed it: If those efforts failed, another plan would take effect, probably a close derivative of the proposal by President Obama's fiscal [cat food] commission led by Erskine B. Bowles, the Clinton White House chief of staff, and former Senator Alan K. Simpson of Wyoming, a Republican. Those recommendations included changes to Social Security, broad cuts in federal programs and actions that would lower tax rates over all but eliminate or pare enough deductions and credits to yield as much as $2 trillion in additional revenue. Just to say, this would be politically stupid as well as a betrayal of the electorate.
