On ABC, NYT's Krugman Accuses GOP of Using Terror-Like Tactics on Debt Ceiling


<p><em>New York Times</em> columnist Paul Krugman, on ABC’s <em>This Week</em> on Sunday, January 13, applied terror-like language to lash out at Republicans for using the debt ceiling as leverage to reduce spending:<br /><br />“We should not allow this to become thought of as a legitimate or normal budget strategy. This is hostage-taking. This is walking into a room saying I’ve got a bomb, give me what I want or I’ll blow up this room. This is not something -- this has never happened before and should not be allowed to happen.”</p>
