    It didn't? It's power increased. Or are you saying the government isn't large? It's a dangerous law at best.

    Not nearly as danger as Obamacare, or sitting back on our laurels, doing nothing in the face of a dangerous enemy. I mean, all the law does is allow law enforcement to listen in on foreign phone calls, without a warrant.

    That's true, but I do like the direction. This should have been done long ago.

    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.
