The conclusion of Paul Krugman's latest column about W's proposal to eliminate dividend taxes:
No doubt the final version of the "stimulus" plan will contain a few genuine recession-fighting measures a child credit here, an unemployment benefit there, a few crumbs for the states for which the administration will expect immense gratitude. But the man in charge that is, Karl Rove is clearly betting that the economy will recover on its own, and intends to use the pretense of stimulus mainly as an opportunity to get more tax cuts for the rich.

Ideology aside, will these guys ever decide that their job includes solving problems, not just using them?

Good question, Paul. I'm pretty sure the answer is "no."
