    Don't misunderstand. I'm not happy with democrats. But it's dishonest to pretend they functioned In a vacuum with no outside forces influences.

    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.

    I never implied that they did, but it was not Repubs that were being negotiated with; it was recalcitrant Dems...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    But, as I noted earlier, republicans and the tea party set the stage, poisoning the well so to speak.

    An opinion I can understand, but it does not change the facts. Oh, BTW, were there any tea party members of Congress elected in 2008?

    What I find disturbing is how much confidence you have in a Federal Govt. that has run up a 17 trillion dollar debt and has never implemented a social program that cost what it was supposed to cost, do what it was supposed to do, actually solve a problem and go away. Why is that?

    Notice you didn't post the other results from more general doctors, further that was a survey of Heart Doctors. What is it about liberals like you who have such support for Govt. programs that are too expensive and never solve social problems?

    Don't say they were elected. But they made the most noise concerning health - mostly wrong, ignorant, and hyperbolic noise. They poisoned the discourse. Made better reform next to impossible. As republican Grassley tried to explain that even though tea party peopleatthe town hall meetings were wrong and misinformed, congress had to them credence because they FELT it so strongly (touchy freely republican). Their poison had a strong effect on what happened. It's dishonest to pretend it didn't.

    What you have is a misunderstanding of how that happened (and from nearly the beginning of this nation) and the responsibility all of us share. It's is false to blame the government, as if it were separate from us.

    That's all I needed to dispute you. But if you can't look up law suits isn't the only reason for tests, let me know and I'll do it for you. But frankly, your article supports what I said.

    Nice diversion and distortion of reality. I gave you studies one from a Heart Surgeon Study along with another of a more general in nature showing that Doctors are ordering more tests tp prevent law suits and still you defend the indefensible. I don't even believe you know what you said.
