    I gave defense spending as an example and in my book salaries and benefits for our military personnel is mandatory just like the Constitution says it is the responsibility of the Federal Govt. to PROVIDE FOR THE COMMON DEFENSE. Sounds mandatory to me or at least our Founders thought it was mandatory.

    That was before the real estate bubbled he helped to inflate popped in 2008 and wiped out all the jobs he "created". Even when you leave that out he had the worst job creation record of any President modern history .

    AVERAGE NUMBER OF JOBS CREATED PER MONTH BY THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION: 20,000

    AVERAGE NUMBER OF JOBS CREATED PER MONTH BY THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION EXCLUDING THE DISASTROUS LAST YEAR: 65,000

    NUMBER OF MONTHS IN THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION IN WHICH THERE WERE 500,000 OR MORE JOBS CREATED: 0.

    (In fact, there were no months in the Bush Administration in which there were 400,000 jobs created).

    And yet, that is not ALL of defense spending, ie, not all of defense spending is mandatory.....to which you agreed to previously.

    I guess you just don't accept when you are wrong, proving yourself wrong for the 3rd time tonight.

    Normally I would argue that point. But give the lunacy that is taking place in one of the Houses of Congress lately I tend to agree with you. The T's have brought this to a whole new level, no doubt. Crash and burn is in the air tonight.

    I wonder what it is about liberalism that creates people like you, people who are so partisan and biased that they ignore actual economic results and distort historical data. I can tell people like you really don't care at all bout the high unemployment for people between the ages of 16-19, African Americans, single mothers. Yes that liberal compassion is more concerned about continuing the Obama economic agenda than actually generating positive results.

    Really, do you have any mirrors in your house? Any at all?

    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.

    Should we go back to the Bush 43 results?

    Re: Most would blame Republicans

    The media is so grotesquely untruthful that democracy is becoming a joke.

    1. The Republicans offer to finance all of government except Obamacare, exercising Congress' right over budget matters.

    2. The Democrats declare they will retaliate by entirely shut down the government if Republicans will not fund Obamacare.

    3. Republicans vote to fund all of government but Obamacare.

    4. Democrats shut down all of the federal government.

    5. The media en mass falsely declares Republicans shut down the federal government.

    With that level of absolute false reporting as Democrat partisan hacks and free PR advertising agencies, democracy has become an absurdity.
