    Answer what? I already told you I am having my experiences with Medicare now and don't want to subject anyone else to it. You don't seem to grasp the concept that this Federal Govt. has no business implementing a universal healthcare program for 312 million Americans. It is going to be a disaster, now you man up and tell me what happens if you are wrong?

    This is where you pretend you don't remember the question. That is weak. Man up, and explain why you wouldn't want more money in pay check.

    And what happens if I'm wrong, more people are covered, we have a method for exercising some restraint, and we work to make it even better.

    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.

    You should have just said, "No. I only want what the government has pre-approved." That would have been honest.

    So, you think this is convincing? I told you, I have not had any issues doing anything I want to do. Perhaps you've been programed to believe your being abused when you're not. It's just as possible.

    I don't get a paycheck and if you do I expect you are going to have a long wait to get what you think you are going to get. Why do you believe what you are told when the law is changing almost daily?

    If you are wrong, you have dismantled the current healthcare system and a lot of people are going to get hurt. You seem to not understand human behavior and freedom of choice. Doctors aren't going to work under the control or supervision of the Federal Govt. Doubt you would either.

    I think you are so invested in the tyranny that you enjoy your chains.

    Still weak. There is no tyranny in my life. None. I mean my wife can be bitchy at times, but its worth the make up sex. But no tyranny. None.

    Most of those trillions came from defense spending. We spend about $1.5T per year on defense and current wars. That's on about a $4T budget.

    Spending on infrastructure doesn't create jobs. Taxpayers create jobs.

    For what purpose a high speed train other than political corruption? It doesn't make economic sense. Once again getting the wacko left not to file lawsuits to halt all those projects except in the smallest of scale would prove next to impossible. Complete waste of time, that idea.

    We already spend billions on education. Why aren't they meeting the needs now in math and science? They have plenty of money, that's not the problem.

    Everything you have listed has had government build road block after road block up in opposition to. Bigger government is the problem, not the answer.
    The Left is just as crazy as the Far Right. Sadly, that's a job machine too: the two crazies fighting each other.

    Yeah, government isn't there to provide roads, water, a power grid or anything at all.

    Libertarians really are living in a vacuum.
