    Since you never ran a business, hired any employees, fired any employees not surprising that you would make that kind of a statement. You really don't have a clue.

    The capital system requires people earning money so they can be good job creators by purchasing goods and services.

    Well, you don't know that, but you still have to show such to be true, which you never have.

    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.

    Those 80,000 regulations do not discourage business? What do they do?

    If the Dems hadn't bailed on their requirements to pass a budget there would have been no negotiations there. To argue that we could default if we elected to is a seperate arguement than the fact that the idea that we never were going to.

    When this was all going down I stated over and over that there was zero chances of default. I wonder what S&P would have thought if this had been the arguement? "There is zero chance of the U.S. defaulting but we do need to come to an agreement here"?
