Krugman’s Car Calumny



Text  



On ABC’s “This Week” this morning, Paul Krugman repeats the left talking point that Senator Bob Corker led the opposition to the auto bailout because he’s the “Senator from Nissan.”  Nissan has two plants in Tennessee, Krugman noted.  Left unsaid is that General Motors — the company leading the push for a bailout — has a plant in Tennessee too.  [Also unsaid during the discussion was that, with ten Republicans on-side, Senate Democrats had the votes to push the GM bailout through.]
