That money has been spent by other Administrations for years thus it is now trillions in unfunded liabilities but because you continue to buy the liberal rhetoric that doesn't matte. Now you want to give those bureaucrats more money to waste, I mean spend on entitlement programs that only create dependence on the govt.
    Again, the results. We're better off than we were. You can't effectively challenge that.

    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.

    Still proving my point.

    I pay taxes. So, relax. Taxes serve a purpose.
    Yeah, they do, unfortunately not as our Founders envisioned, they do keep liberals in power and people dependent. From what I can tell they keep you employed

    Guess it all depends on your definition of being better off. Spend enough money, create enough dependence and certainly some people are better off. Love that liberal compassion on the 250 billion spent each year to service the debt. How many people does that help in this country? Amazing how we all survived this many years without the help of liberals.

    How do you know how the foundering fathers might have evolved had they lived through or history. They seemed to think progressively, fighting the authority of the time, and didn't seem to be closed minded nonthinking people. For all we know, they might have gone more liberal.

    The Preamble to the Constitution tells it all as well as the Part time legislators created. What they might have done is something you have no idea about and you certainly have no idea of what they did.

    Closed minded non thinking people are the ones promoting the massive expansion and growth of the Federal control over the people. Closed minded people think spending in the name of compassion generates compassionate results when it only creates debt and more bureaucracy.

    I grew up a liberal just like you but outgrew it long before we had a 17.3 trillion dollar debt and 250 billion a year in debt service along with over 100 million Americans dependent on some form of taxpayer welfare.

    Closed minded people never think, they only feel. We will let you decide who really is closed minded.

    Yes, those over 100 million Americans on some form of govt. assistance have an incredible standard of living, don't they? the millions of Americans who remain unemployed, long term part time employees, under employed, and discouraged workers have a wonderful standard of living, don't they?

    You think the Federal Govt. is the answer when the real answer is in your local communities. You however are too blinded by an ideology to see it

    It is true that we don't know what they might have done, which btw is my point. Do you grasp this? We have more than 200 years of history. Is it unusual or unexpected for there to be change?

    So open your mind. Listen for a second.

    Don't make leaps. I didn't say incredible. I said better. Stay within the framework of what was actually said.
