Today, Paul Krugman decided to give us his wisdom on the subject of nullification âÂ by saying almost nothing at all. In a short blog post, linking to a âreportâ by ThinkProgress, he notes â laughingly â that a Senate Candidate in Texas supports the idea of states nullifying acts on Congress. He doesnât say a thing about nullification, but heâs obviously brushing it off as idiotic.
