    They were locked out of drafting the bill? The one that was originally conceived by Republicans and the Heritage Foundation? And implemented by Mitt Romney in MA?

    The point is that I already put it in context in the original post. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him literate.

    asked and answered-and given I pay far more taxes than you earn, I am paying for more of what you use than you do

    I don't have children. I don't benefit from educating your children.

    But actually, I do, just as you benefit from paying for other people's health care. The economy is better off if we have an educated work force. Life in general is more pleasant if I don't have to deal with blithering idiots all day. Crime and indigence are less of a problem if people are educated.

    The economy is also better off if the population is healthier and thus more productive.

    But it sounds like you're in favor of the mandate, yes? Since you don't want to pay for the health care of people who can afford to pay for it themselves?

    I have no trouble at all. By all means ask an honest question. And if you can, show me where I'm at all inaccurate.


    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.
