The analysis is almost surely correct.
Krugman argues otherwise.
Bmaz is an attorney. Krugman isn’t.
Laurence Tribe is an attorney and on the facutly at Harvard Law – he deems it constitutional.
Philip Diehl, the former Mint Director and Treasury Chief of Staff who wrote the law deems it constitutional.
None of which is to say I think it a good idea. But is it legal? Well, if Obama tries it we’ll find out. But Bmaz is the left’s version of Ted Cruz: the self-appointed only virtuous dude in the room.
“Where is that principled set of voices on the left now? Things are different when it is your guy in office I guess.”
I guess everybody fails to live up to his standards.
