40 Economists Say The GOP Has Abandoned Economic Reality

A survey of forty economists from across the ideological and partisan spectrum has concluded that on some of its most cherished issues, the Republican Party has simply taken leave of economic reality. For instance, economists Betsey Stevenson and Justin Wolfers noted that one of the results from the survey - run by the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business, which is hardly known for a left-wing slant - is an overwhelming agreement that the 2009 Recovery Act (i.e. the stimulus) brought down unemployment.

And the GOP responded by with a long diatribe about socialism and abortion written in crayon.
