The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    that sounds really good so I hope you want tax increases to apply to everyone rather than those who already pay far more than their share

    and tell me how is more money going to an irresponsible government going to achieve that

    I believe that was a misinterpretation on your part.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    So you think tax increases increases tax revenues? So do I!!

    But how do you square that with your claim that tax cuts also increase tax revenues?

    uh I never said that

    You want tax increases

    I don't

    I want far less government

    but if taxes are going to go up they need to go up on those who have not figured out that government costs money


    its not about revenue-its about edification

    • Are we supposed to believe that a 38.6% tax creates almost no jobs, but a 39.6% tax creates huge amounts of jobs?
    • That 35% is the magic number for no jobs, and 28-31% will get you some jobs?
