She Would Know...

Guess the quote:
“I frankly don’t understand why policy makers aren’t more worried about the suffering of real families, I think there are tools we have tools we have that we can use, and I think it’s shameful that we’re not using them.”
That's not atrios, Paul Krugman or Dean Baker.

Those are the words of former Obama Administration Council of Economic Advisers Chair, Christina Romer.

She can call Obama and tell him this. She can call any one else on his econ team if she wants to. Instead, she decided to go public with these sentiments.

Last year I wrote that someone should resign and publicly call out the economic team. So it wasn't done explicitly in conjunction with her resignation, but this basically that, isn't it?
