    Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb

    That's what happens when you slash the top tax rates. We've know this for 30 years. It is why the majority of Americans support cutting the tax breaks for the rich.

    Naturally, since the majority want higher taxes for the rich, and for SS and Medicare to remain untouched, that means that will solve the debt/deficit issues we face... right?

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    As we will have more revenue and less elderly in the streets and better health care for those that are sick, it will definitely improve the debt/deficit issues we face, yes it will help! But we must also cut our wasteful foreign spending.

    We've seen that, GM. It's failing.

    Also, name a nation that operates under this glorious scheme? There isn't one.

    And workers cannot "run the system" because, guess what, it fails.

    Yep, and each one is fail.

    That's impossible. You can have to access education, but a "Right" to education places an obligation on another. Thus it is not a Right.

Again, it is not a Right if it confers an obligation upon others to provide you the means to exercise said right. For example, you have the Right to Bare Arms, but this doens't mean other pay for your guns and ammo. You have the Right to Free Speech, but you cannot ask others to provide you a venue for it.

    Go buy a house, no one is stopping you. Unless you are again saying OTHERS must provide you a house, that is no longer a Right, its forcing other people to give you something so that you can have it. That's not a Right.

    Which doens't exist in the world because it's a silly pipe dream.

    Utopian fail. You want a country where other people are forced to work to provide you with things you're too lazy to provide for yourself.

    THAT is the definition of a Progressive Democrat Socialist. "Selfish"

    All the polls show America has a lot of uneducated stupid people that don't realize they are merely hurting themselves and making the problem worse. I'm not impressed

    Good thing we have you here to educate everyone. You could just say, "Well I disagree with the majority of Americans", but instead you choose to call them dumb. That's real smart of you.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    He's clearly an elitist.

    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.
