    A poorly educated nation isn't going to have the jobs at which the people can work hard. Obamacare doesn't change that.

    I wouldn't go that far, but Roberts was a good choice, and I said so then.

    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.

    It's a deduction... You can get a deduction for buying a house and for making energy improvements to that house. If you don't buy a house, then you don't get such deductions. That means you will likely pay higher taxes had you taken the deduction and owned a house, etc.

    Does ANYONE know the case number/case name for this?

    I know, and yet I'm still pissed off that it was a supposedly conservative appointee that just expanded the power of federal government to pretty much encompass any level of coercion imaginable.

    I don't attack my constituents. Bob is my constituent now.
    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Do you understand the difference between saying "Come eat at my steak house, I'll give you 10 bucks!" and saying "If you don't come to my steakhouse, you will be required by law to pay me 10 bucks!"

    Funny, I had this same conversation earlier.
