    I was in a meeting a few years ago with church groups from around the area when a conservative said all of this should be mooved to charity and churches shoudl pick it up. The reaction was not pleasent. I think before we suggest that type of approach, we might want some input from chuches and charity groups who would pick up that slack.

    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.

    Do you have anything sensible to say, or just rhetoric? Maybe people should plan their lives better and live within their means instead of doing whatever the **** they want and then demanding that society pick up the tab for their failures.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    One could say the same about your comments.

    As for child care costs, the regulation is obviously needed due to bad people that ran day cares where there was one person for 10 or more kids. Children got hurt, neglected, and abused. Maybe instead of blaming the regulations you should blame the people that ran bad day cares.

    Yeah, it's not the regulators fault Day Care is so costly that hundreds of millions of dollars of Tax Payer cash is needed to help "poor people" out.

    No it isn't because if people ran the day cares right to begin with instead of running them like a 3rd world country, regulations would not be needed. Again, blame the people that ran crappy day cares.

    There is lots of fraud, waste, and abuse, but regulations designed to make sure children aren't abused, neglected, or hurt is not one of them.

    It should not be the state that takes care of the children, it should be family or friends. Why should we pay to have someone get free daycare? Do (some of them) have a real need, probably. Do all of them have a real need? Probably not. There is fat all over the place that could be trimmed. Besides, many employers have day care centers at work.

    My view: Huge budget problems, but we can't raise any taxes....

    Maybe the half billion dollars that was pissed away on Solyndra should have been spent on this?

    Or, maybe the people who spit these brats out into the world should take care of their own responsibilities?

    I'm going with the latter.

    Economic depression with lack of key subsidies to support the public is a recipe for disaster.

    Guess we should have thought of that before we gave trillions of dollars to private business.
