    1) you are the one who claimed that 47% of the people cannot afford to feed themselves

    2) are you denying that 47% don't pay federal income taxes?

    He's questioning your 47% number, probabaly not knwoing you're limiting it to payroll taxes, ignoring other taxes people pay, and that that number is a one year oddity (usually between 35 and 40%).

    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.

    What does that have to do with you claiming that they are all obese?

    the discussion involves income tax hikes. not social security contributions or excise taxes on wines or firearms

    Not when you bring the misleading stat. You move the discussion. Sorry.

    you were the one who made the idiotic claim that 47% of the population can barely afford to eat.

    The only really thin people I see in poor neighborhoods are tweakers

    See this is why I want some proof this time .. . remember that 800 billion dollar stimulus that was for those shovel ready jobs that were going to put Americans to work ... 800 billion of our tax dollars already spend on it ... where's the jobs ???

    I'm just tired of being lied to .... and I'm not talking about just the last two years . . I'm talking about the last 30 ... I said this many times ... Clinton was the best we had .. he raised taxes .. cut military spending to the bone, had the dot com bubble driving the economy, making more millionaires faster then anytime in history, with all that going on .. this country went another 1.5 trillion dollars in debt .. and that was the best we had in the last 30 years
