    We have had enough of gov used to soak the poor and print money for the Rich via the MIC.
    Ummmm, no, it wouldn't work. If you taxed the wealthy at a rate of 100%, it wouldn't touch the fiscal responsibilities that we currently have.

    In my book, that makes Obama a liar...and a dumb one. If he wants to dispute Romney, he should find and quote someone who is actually disputing Romney. Not someone who validates what Romney is saying.

    If this economist fell in the forest and nobody was there to see or hear it did it actually happen?

    Some of you folks seem to be missing the fact that the wealthy tend to derive their income from sources which are substantially more flexible than those of wage earners. If a "rich guy" gets a W-2 it's usually for a relatively small portion of his income. The rest of the stuff can be moved around they are far more able to decide for themselves how much income they choose to show.

    Dude...I like your style. It's dumb, but I like it. You can't come up with a comment about how Obama lied, so you try to minimize the importance of the economist. Well...evidently Obama thought he was important enough to lie about his work to his own advantage.

    Oh, well. Like I said...another Obama talking point bites the dust.

    It would be difficult to attempt to minimize the importance of the economist beyond what it already is.

    union people make more than college ones.

    SO organizing is better than education.........
