    Your short-sighted plan meets my expectations for you apdst!

    However, that's not how it works. They may well support something you don't, and you doubting it wouldn't make it any less true.

    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.

    Why would that matter unless you want to start making the discussion a personal one?

    Curious to know what you have invested in the scheme. And, if your taxes aren't going to go, what are you going to do when the government after your money?

    They haven't. Obama has said he will veto any extension of the tax cuts for people making more than 250k

    Except, I'm in serious doubt that the American people overwhelmingly support raising taxes. I think that notion nothing more than Libbo-ganda.

    Why are curious if it has nothing to do with this discussion of the issues, unless you want to make this discussion personal?

    Of course they don't. They were just playing with the pollsters. All 19 times.
