@tylercowen @Henry_Curr @ModeledBehavior Is it because they've forgotten? Or because they've changed their minds? Or because of partisanship? Better to ask them why than insinuate...honestly I'm not sure what.

@ModeledBehavior @tylercowen I'm all for picking fights with Larry Summers. Believing that he's changed his tune does not strengthen the case for the GOP bill.

@tylercowen If there are particular people whose arguments you find to be time inconsistent, then pick a fight with them. But tweeting #memoryhole doesn't improve the case for the GOP bill.

@tylercowen I think we could tolerate higher deficits, and I think that in the right context a corporate rate cut would be good policy. I also think that the GOP bill is garbage.
