And not only have those policies failed, again and again, but those foundational principles of the neocon revolution are still being supported and hyped today as basic platforms of Republican governance. This is the proof of Right Wing dogma based politics: They don't look at evidence, only at ideology. Don't take it from me. Here's a Nobel prize winner in economics:

The increase in public debt was, however, dwarfed by the rise in private debt, made possible by financial deregulation.

The gift that keeps on giving.
Krugman I notice he's not writing how great the VA is doing these days, He's an expert because those who deem him that agree with him. Obama got a Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing, so what does that award mean anymore?

Most the Nobel prizes are held in much higher regard than the Peace Prize. (Where apparently everyone in Europe is now a prize winner)

But in say economics, or science, it's still an achievement.
