    So, those washers and dryers, TV's, furniture, and computers don't count as more than toiletries?

    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.

    How is raising taxes going to put people back to work? Think those evil rich companies are going to absorb those tax increases and not pass them through to the consumer?

    We've been down this road. I never claimed it will put people back to work. I claim appeaseing companies, giving them tax breaks won't put people back to work either. Address the point I make and not just repeat something that has no bearing on what I said.

    I can see it now: The United States' economy is based on **** paper, home appliances and rent to own stores.

    I'm sure that's going to work just fine.

    Well it's been shown tax cuts don't create jobs either hence the GOP plan is already shown to be a big failure.

    IOW, the government can't create jobs, so let's soak tax payers for as much as we can.

    I think you're missing the point. That is just one eampel, but Maytag is a company that employs people. they might take exception to your disrespect of them. What do you think they don't buy?

    People buying. Spending money. Not taxes.
