    I can only thing of ONE candidate during the primaries who MIGHT have had the guts to put the USA on an austerity program. It is coming, cuts will be made, people will complain.

    I think that is true. Tax hikes are coming as well. But no one wants to be the one who does that. It will be ugly.

    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.

    To hear some tell it, Republicans have already ended anything resembling services to the poor riffraff, so how would they know the difference?

    Once the "poor" lose enough income to have to give up cable TV, internet, cell phones, etc. they will have more time on thier hands to protest against the govt. And the rich will have strokes at having to go from 35% to 39% tax rate....
