    I think we're having that discussion. And I'm capable of having more than one.

    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.

    pfft...there was no serious effort. Democrats made token gestures and rejected every thing the Republicans did offer.

    Maybe, but democrats didn't say there job was to make sure republicans rent successful. Republicans did say that concerning Obama. It makes a difference.

    Sorry but you don't cry that you want to work with someone and then block them at every turn. That is not working with someone. That is making a meaningless token gesture just so that you can say later on that "well...at least we tried!" totally spinning what actually went down. Nothing more than an attempt to make yourself look good.

    And before someone else comes up with the meme...Yes Republicans have done the same thing. Doesn't mean that it was any more right for them to do it than the Democrats. Both sides are wrong to do so.

    How about coming to the table and wanting to work, not block?

    You just claimed that I'm making a big fuss about what I "think" is in the bill. I want examples of what I "think" is in the bill that actually isn't in the bill.

    We are having that discussion elsewhere.

    I'm not convinced. If we used the money we spend extra right now, moved it to a universal payer system, allowing those who can to buy more, we'd spend less, much less, and get more.

    The point is, Republicans are setting themselves up to capitalize on the next two elections when premiums begin to skyrocket.
    I have seen no evidence that premiums are going to skyrocket unless you rely on the sound bites from the right.
