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.
Republicans now control 1/6 of the federal Government.
What I thought was interesting is that the GOP/Tea Party backed a number of lobbyists and former congressmen. So much for all that anti-incumbent/ reshaping Washington b.s.
This election wasn't about the "will of the people." It was about the will of the wealthy corporate interests.
Tea Party anger was used and channeled by the power-elite GOP.
America kicks Nancy Pelosi out of America!!!! God Bless America!!
Think if Trump get elected how much resistance he will face with in all phases of our country from people to military to politicians. He must not win.
If they were going to 'reshape' Washington, why did they back oil and coal lobbyists for congressional seats??
The Tea Party is definitely in denial if they can't see how used they were.
Thankfully, the West stayed sane. Although, I think Whitman would have made a good Gov. Her concession speech was classy-- her supporters showed themselves to be classless.
I think I got the OP up to date. If I missed something post it and I will add it. Going to leave this stickied for awhile longer.
