    the gop passed hr ONE three weeks after swearing in

    it is what it is

    who's serious?

    leadership, anyone?

    if something isn't done imminently to restructure our budget, then our big 3 federal social programs will cease to exist in their current form

    hurry, harry
    I would have had a lot more respect for the Ryan plan if he did anything with defense, taxes, farm subsidies etc.

    Ryans plan sounds good till you get to the candy store paragraph where he gives all that he cuts and more right to the wealthiest americans...abolish the inheritance tax that only effects the rich...abolish capitol gains tax that again is for the rich 27% income tax for the rich and for corporations like GENERAL ELECTRIC and the rest of his plan sticks it squarely into the buttocks of the rest of americans...the other 98%

    that's fine and fair

    but until hurryup harry kicks kent conrad into action...

    700 days and counting

    every two weeks go by cost us on the order of another 60 billion we don't have

    and our entitlements will simply expire sans reform

    leadership, anyone?

    Why is there never anything about farm subsidies? Why is it so politically unfavorable to cut them?

    um. he literally deals with all three of those. he cuts defense, reforms the tax code, and ends agricultural subsidies.

    sure I can. Gravity does not force me into an emergency room; and people went for eons without hospitals just as we went without cars. And I find it entertaining that you don't address food, which has the exact same inelasticity at the extremes as healthcare.

    And CP, you not acknowledging the answer is not equal to you not being answered. That silly tactic wears thin as well.
    project much? all i want to know - seperate it from any thing else - is if Congress has a right to regulate mental activity.

    Hence you're problem, you're living in a past that no longer exists. Yes, a person can go withoiut care, until they have an emergency and someone else picks them up and treats them. As they go without care before them, they get more and more ill, meaning treatment will now be expensive. But at the end of they day, today, if they become serious hurt or ill they will be treated. And this happens daily.

    Funny that you think this is an answer. In context, the judge is exactly correct. NRO's lack of context misses the point and dishonestly presents a false argument.

    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.
