    Also, there are the massive cuts to education, strengthening the barrier blocking social mobility. And the constant moves to privatize... everything. Allowing the wealthy to own and control everyone's finances, their health, the housing industry, the food industry, the entertainment industry. All of it. Massive deregulation takes control from the many and hands it to the few. Oh, and opposing any steps towards ensuring a living wage.

    Seriously, do you not know that these things happen?

    Hum, OK. I think what I wrote in a previous post is coming. A year ago, I met two Tea Baggers at a demonstration who were using Medicare, liked it very much, did not want it messed with or made into a government run program! I spent some time disabusing them of what they had been authoritatively informed of prior to the demonstration. It takes a few years for the general public to become informed in sufficient detail to vote rationally.

    How can the tea "party" not be too embedded with the republican party when they are republicans? If the Tea party was truly an actual party then they would have actually formed their own party not be republicans pretending to not be republicans even though they still carry the big R next to their name.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I have to agree.

    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.
