    Again, your opinion carries little weight because it lacks support and a valid econometric underpinning. Therefore, it is taken with a grain of salt.
    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.

    Not for me. Do you actually think right-wing economists like Gary Becker or Robert Lucas would sit idle if the research teams at the BLS or BEA were even suspected of manipulating data?

    No, probably not...Unless there was something in it for them to lose....Maybe I am too conspiratorial.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Although a small amount pretty soon all the small amounts of waste, fraud, and abuse add up to some real money. We have Medicare Fraud, SS Fraud, Food Stamp Fraud all contributing to the debt so what do liberals do, propose another entitlement program that will generate more opportunities for fraud with the ACA program? We see how success the role out is of the 300 million dollar website

    Obamacare glitches: Gov't contract for troubled site has swelled; GOP targets Sebelius - U.S. News

    Now we have this

    Craigslist makes turning food stamps into cash a SNAP | Fox News

    This is just another example of book smart street stupid people supporting a massive central govt. that is bloated, inefficient, and full of waste, fraud, and abuse of someone else's money.

    Why did Boehner have to pull his own Farm bill and Transportation bill??
    Why was Boehner unable to get a CR out of his own caucus ?
