    And yes, they try. They are expected to try. And they will take credit if they get lucky and seek to blame others if they don't. The point is, they can't control it.

    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 is it about the liberal ideology that creates such loyalty in the face of so many failures? The numbers aren't that much different in previous years nor do they matter to the liberal ideologues. We have a debt problem because we spend too much money. People keeping more of their own are able to reduce their debt. Stop the spending and we won't have a debt problem.

    I doubt anything posted is going to change your mind and you want compromise? Compromise to a liberal is giving into what ever a liberal wants regardless of reality

    I think we would get further if you stepped off the partisan stereotype train and addressed actual points. I'm just saying . . . .

    And yes, they are fairly different. As I said, they average somewhere less than 40%. You can't cut enough with cuts alone, and frankly, if a politiican tried, and got something passed, he'd be out of office next election.

    An anamoly to a liberal is 47% not the 40% that Boo claims is normal yet Boo ignores that 40 of 140 million income earners is 56 million income not paying any FIT
