    A bunch of other proposals of getting money out of politics that sounded great. Not expecting much on it though.
    Me either, because republicans will not cooperate.

    Damn. Once Obama leaves office, I hope he doesn't become a used car salesman in Houston. I would end up totally screwed. LOL.

    Then you'll fit in like the perfect texan. Double-wide trailer and six cars in the front yard with 5 of them up on cinder blocks.

    Yeah, biggest lie so far: "Warren Buffett's secretary pays more taxes than Warren Buffett." Puke.
    Second biggest: "I'm going to make sure that banks help people refinance their homes. They can save $3,000 a year through refinancing. Banks should be doing this to pay back the American people!!" Puke.

    That's a paraphrase, by the way. Here's the full text: http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/State...ry?id=15430273

    I'll be more impressed when either aprty actually does any of this. But you are correct that at this place and time, republicans won't cooperate. But I'm not convinced with cooperation it would happen anyway.

    That said, we should still push our representatives to act on it. No sense us quiting.

    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.

    Damn, told Congress if that since they didn't act to address climate change, he would! He announced plans to open up 300 public lands for the development of alternative energy sources, powering a quarter of a million homes initially.

    That'd be nice but I'll believe it when I see it. His definition of "clean energy" seems to shift too much. He was out there selling "clean coal" last election which is a total fraud. There is no such thing as "clean coal." Fossil fuels and nuclear energy are not forms of clean energy and if he tries to imply otherwise... he is wrong. And he's stated that natural gas, nuclear and clean coal are "clean energy" in the past. If that is what he opens up public lands for, screw 'em.
