    Yep. And the fact is they are better today than before it. Step up and prove me wrong, or fold. No dancing around it. Do one or the other.

    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.

    And many government efforts work out just fine, as I've shown. You still haven't stepped up. But I have to leave you for awhile. perhaps when I get back you'll address the issue.

    Oh, I don't believe for a second that Romney would have been prudent with taxpayer money, any more than Bush was. There are no conservatives in either major party, nobody believes in fiscal responsibility, balanced budgets, not borrowing from China, etc. Romney wouldn't have been any better. We need some actual conservatives in this country.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Aw, yes, liberal compassion, 800 a month for SS when that money could have gone into a special savings account drawing simple interest and remained the property of the family. Another brilliant liberal social program that only benefits the govt. SS was never intended by FDR to even be collected, Life expectancy at the time was 63 and retirement was 65. Where does the money go when someone dies before collecting SS?

    No, you have proven no such thing because you have totally ignored the compassion of having a 250 billion dollar debt service with much of that money going overseas. You buy the liberal rhetoric because that is what you want to believe, that is called thinking only with your heart. There never are better alternatives in the liberal world to SS, Medicare, ACA or any other liberal social program but the only compassion goes to the bureaucrats that run those programs. Are you one?

    That is your opinion, the fact that he balanced the budget in the liberal state of MA will always be ignored. We will never know what he would have done at the national level so we elected an incompetent with no experience at all.

    No, he would have come to national office and had to deal with a deadlocked Congress, plus his own party pushing him to leave a lasting legacy. We might know how things would have gone down but I don't think he would have solved any of the problems we face, he might have even caused new ones.

    Every state has a balanced budget. Every state. Every single year

    C'mon man, you're allowed your own opinion - just not your own version of facts.

    He raised taxes to balance the budget. He didn't cut spending.
