Paul Krugman opines that Obama should stand up to Republicans.
Unfortunately, as with Clinton's disastrous free-trade policies, Obama promotes cuts to the safety net that a Republican president would not be able to get past a Democratic congress. Obama, like Clinton, has been very much a Republican president.
Obama's preparedness to make a whole range of compromises will be at the expense of the 99%.
It is we who must stand up to our president. We have to prevent him from selling us down the river.
