Krugman, Underpants Gnomes, and me

more more reason to love Paul Krugman:

The Underpants Gnomes Theory Of Reform

Watching some liberal members of the House explain why they won’t do what's necessary, and pass the Senate bill, I was wondering what they imagine will happen. Then the answer came to me: it's the Underpants Gnomes business plan. In its original form this was:

1. Collect underpants.
2. ?????
3. Profit!

The current version is:

1. Reject the only bill that can be enacted any time soon.
2. ?????
3. Universal coverage!
