    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    A bit of a personal attack there, but perhaps you could explain exactly how your post responded to his?

    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.

    You failed to address my comment. I'm willing to give you another chance out of fairness.

    so far, this has been a pretty good thread, despite the partisan nonsense. Is it now to degenerate into a tedious pissing match?

    Most likely. Do you blame a 3 year old child for their poor behavior?

    Again, that would not give him control, even if true.

    Sure. Rockets, space exploration, defense...

    Some matters. Some a little less so. But it is what it is. Most of the houses in my neighborhood are owned by engineers similar to me. The rocket scientists let go by NASA have moved on to find work elsewhere.

    The engineers who were let go will find work elsewhere as well. When the time comes we all will. I moved here for the interesting work. When I need to I will move to wherever the interesting work may be found.

    He got what he needed, spent it wrong. Too much in targeted tax cuts and union bailouts
