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.
this is nothing more than class warfare and envy which is what liberalism is all about. "Your" President hasn't been accurate on any projection yet so why is he accurate now?
My question to you is why aren't you winning? You seem to care more about what someone else makes or pays in taxes vs. trying to become one of those you seem to hate. I am tired of this argument and trying to convince you the value of you keeping more of what you earn. It makes no sense to continue this.
I will ask you again however to name for me just one Obama economic prediction that has been accurate? He claims it will blow a 700 billion dollar hole in the deficit, do you believe that and if so prove it. He claimed that his stimulus plan would prevent unemployment from exceeding 8%, how is that prediction working out? He claimed that economic growth would be 4% this year, annualized the GDP rate is now at 1.6%. He has made claims that jobs are being created each month for the last 8 yet every month this year unemployment is higher than it was last year.
Stop buying the rhetoric and do your own research to get the facts.

how do YOU spell s-u-r-r-e-n-d-e-r?
does anyone other than our lost leadership actually believe that that which can't be done TODAY will be doable AFTER the murderous midterms in november?Democrats abandoned plans to vote before Election Day on extending Bush-era tax cuts for the middle class while eliminating them for better-off Americans, spooked by protests from vulnerable incumbents and bleak prospects for passage.
With time running out to plan for 2011, the delay raises uncertainty for small businesses and individual taxpayers over their future liabilities. It also sets up a titanic battle over taxes after the election.
