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.
"Your" President now wants to raise taxes with high unemployment as symbolism to anyone who is even considering showing initiative, taking risk that it just isn't worth it under this Administration.
What do you mean by "people who don't contribute"? Everybody pays taxes, even those who are unable to get a job at all. Most everybody either works or is trying to find work. If you're just going to make a statement about spending on "people who don't contribute", you need to define that before we can even begin to see what a number would be.
