    And as long as the administration is willing to lie about the numbers, well, presto-chango, no recession.
    Now just for fun let's add in inflation which is rising very quickly. It is time to return to the misery index required during the one term president Carter years.

    For the sake of the nation the one term Marxist president Obama must be defeated and his democratic allies sent scurrying back to universities.

    Communist? No. Communism is the political system joined at the hip with Marxism, an economic theory. The one term president Obama is a Marxist. Not (yet) a communist.

    He's neither, and it marks the person claiming he is as either a cheap partisan trying to over use an unoriginal tactic, or a nutter.

    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.

    Then don't be an idiot. Do both at the same time. Honestly, there is no reason both can't be done, mandated under law, at the exact same time.

    I agree to only half. He is not yet a communist. His core beliefs are Marxist.

    But it won't happen. It never does.

    Why would we need tax increases if we are cutting our spending? Why not just cut?

    The rightwings quest to redistribute income is so strong that they will not hesitate to use fictions to accuse others of lying without any evidence to support their claims
