Snork!>> University of Georgia economics professor Jeffrey Dorfman makes a good point in his op-ed “With the Environment, [Former Economist] Paul Krugman Forgets the Poor” about hos environmentalists and liberals routinely advocate policies that uniformly hurt the poor people that they claim to care about so much:"Poor people spend a higher percentage of their income on energy bills, so raising those costs in order to improve the environment means that the poor will feel more pain than those with higher incomes. If we were talking about tax policy, no liberal would forget to mention the poor and how the rich should carry more of the burden. Yet, somehow, on environmental policy most liberals favor policies which hurt the very people they normally want to help." .....Related: A Google search of the phrase “former economist Paul Krugman” produces 29,600 results.http://www.aei-ideas.org/2013/06/environmentalists-liberals-...arrete
