“Paul Ryan declared it a proven fact that Keynesian economics has failed — and was, of course, not challenged on that assertion.” Ok, I understand that some people find economics confusing but if you’re a journalist why do let politicians get away with this?

This is a pattern from these people: Keynesian denial, evolution denial, climate change denial. It appears to be the party of the reality-challenged.
