Bill Beach, the director of the Center for Data Analysis at the Heritage Foundation, has printed an open letter to Paul Krugman of the New York Times, asking him to correct or clarify a number of what Beach says are false assertion about Heritage’s analysis of Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget plan.
Best of luck, Bill. In his column today, “Let’s Not Be Civil,” Krugman encourages the left to be uncivil. It follows on his January commentary blaming the attempted assassination of Rep. Gabby Giffords and the murder of six people on conservative incivility. I wouldn’t expect too much regard for the truth.
