Clinton retirement plan rests on rich

BY Matt Stearns

Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., on Tuesday proposed a new multibillion-dollar retirement plan -- billed as a universal 401(k) plan with federal matching funds -- to supplement Social Security for middle-class workers. The accounts would cost the Treasury $20 billion to $25 billion a year, the second-most-expensive initiative Clinton has rolled out in her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. Her plan for universal health care would cost more than $100 billion a year. ''I am not proposing anything I don't have a way to pay for,'' she said.

Watching CNBC

BY An NRO Symposium

Another night, another debate. On Tuesday, the Republicans talked economics in Dearborn. National Review Online gathered a group — virtually — to weigh in. Here’s what they thought. Brian Darling Republicans have a long way to go to regain the trust of the American people, but the debate showed some hopeful signs of change and reform. Herewith, some thumbnail observations… Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney went after each other. That kind of feistiness will be needed in the general election.

Slippery Statistics

Kent already pointed out some goofy language in Hillary Clinton's health-care plan, but some of it is downright misleading. Let's all flip to page 7 of our PDFs and follow along:

Why It's Good to Own Your Own Coverage

Over at The American Prospect, Paul Waldman is either confused or being intentionally deceptive about conservative ideas regarding health-care coverage:

White House: Opposition to S-CHIP Not About Spending

This is pretty depressing.  In this NPR interview, White House counselor defends Bush's S-CHIP veto, but completely gives up on spending as a rationale for opposition, even going so far as to say that Bush would be "more than happy" to expand the program beyond the $5 billion expansion he initially proposed, provided the program meets a few standards.  So much for fiscal conservatism.

Is There a Bush-Goldwater Connection?

Whatever else you have to say about Krugman, he's a really smart guy, and he at least used to be a fascinating economics writer (not always someone to agree with, but certainly interesting to read).  But his political history leaves a lot to be desired.  In today's column, he goes through a series of awkward rhetorical contortions in order to suggest that Bush's presidency represents absolutely no change in conservatism whatsoever, and compares Bush not only to Reagan, but to Goldwater.
