Hillary Clinton Doesn’t Listen to Economists
When asked this morning by ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos if she could name a single economist who backs her call for a gas tax holiday this summer, HRC said “I’m not going to put my lot in with economists.â€
I know several of the economists who have been advising Senator Clinton, so I phoned them right after I heard this. I reached two of them. One hadnâ€™t heard her remark and said he couldnâ€™t believe sheâ€™d say it. The other had heard it and shrugged it off as â€œpolitics as usual.â€
Thatâ€™s the problem: Politics as usual.
