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.
there's not enough money in the solar system to make whole our big 3 federal social programs
if budget reform is not undertaken now, then social security, medicare and medicaid (as well as state pensions) simply will cease to exist in their present form
it's been two years since the party in power produced a budget
Catch me if you can.
no matter what the rich pay it can't come close to making whole our big 3 federal social programs, nor our suffocating state pension systems
there's just not enough rich in the milky way
if social security, medicare and medicaid are not fudamentally restructured now, they will disappear in their current constructs
and two years farther down the road the party in power has STILL failed to itemize its answer
it is what it is---math
