    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.

    No, what is needed is long term growth and absorption of our current excess productive capacity. Government spending will not provide that...

    Long term growth is best left too the market. Sure, policy can have a lasting impact for LTG, but that is beyond the realm of this discussion. Larger deficits will, by sheer definition, boost aggregate output, and therefore will reduce excess productive capacity until the private sector is ready to take the lead once again.

    Every POTUS is fully responsible for his watch. GWB had a couple of bad months. BHO is having a couple of bad terms. He has abdicated leadership.

    Any spending by the government is inherently inefficient (outside of the military) due to its political nature, which is why the stimulus was not as effective as it could have been. The government needs to adopt a rational policy to utilize our natural resources to enable the country to achieve energy independence while hardening our energy transmission at the same time...

    You think loss of real net wealth in the tune of 100% of GDP was a bad couple of months? Since BHO was elected president, Americans have witness a real wealth increase of more than $10 trillion.

    I recently retired. I did my part to make room for another worker.

    When the private sector refuses to lead the charge of real economic growth, government spending becomes the only game in town.
