    Amazing how Disneydude ran when proven wrong. A liberal can never admit when wrong. Barack Obama has an ideology that mirrors many here but the fact is that Obama nor those here can admit what that ideology is, cradle to grave coverage by a massive central govt. That hope and change message was misinterpreted by many in the electorate that voted for him but not by many here who want a European socialist economy because most apparently cannot make it on their own.

    Just pointing out that it was bush* who is mostly responsible for the out of control spending because he never even tried to control the spending.

    Hello pot.

    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.

    everyone's cutting, no one's taxing

    maybe you could write em a letter

    since you don't want to read
    What do I care what Cuomo is doing in New York or Rahm is doing in Chicago? I don't live there. We're talking about national politics and you're changing the subject because you know I've boxed you into a corner. You know that it is necessary to increase revenues if you aren't making enough money. You just don't want to admit it.

    I will never accept the statement that tax cuts are an expense to the govt. I posted the line item expenses of the govt. and tax cuts isn't there. Tax cuts give people more spendable income and that scares the hell out of liberals. It makes economic growth easier because of consumer spending which always happens when people have more spendable income. GDP growth means more tax revenue and more employees. Happens every time unless there are economic conditions that prevent it, i.e. recessions, 9/11, and the financial crisis.

    If those funds were "redistributed" back into Treasury to pay for extended tax cuts or extended unemployment benefits, I'd say both were valid expenditures under present day economic circumstances.
