Whose Fault?

You can count on Paul Krugman to be on the wrong side of almost any economic argument.  Most recently he wrote in yesterday's New York Times about the abysmal economy in the state of California.  His analysis, of course, ignores the possibility that their state government may have grown too big, too fast and is too inefficient to work within the allotted budget.  No, according to Krugman it must be due to the "inequitable and unstable" tax system in California.  The voters do not know what they are doing (and have been doing the wrong thing regarding taxes ever since Proposition 13 was first passed in 1978) and they must be chastised for electing "extreme" Republicans.  Arnold Schwarzenegger is extreme?  Please!  I would modestly suggest that the voters are right in limiting tax increases and merely need to take the next step which is voting out legislators who choose to ignore the budget limitations; whether they are Republicans or Democrats.  It is not extreme to want a smaller more efficient government.  Whose fault is that anyway?
