    the fact that the OP tried to portray this as a GOP thing is dishonest as a whole. it's a lobbyist shooting his mouth off.
    Don't know one way or the other. However, the bleacher report quotes the same thing from The Hill site. It's making the rounds. The question is he a powerful GOP lobbyist as claim. If he is, it taints the GOP.

    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.

    ...and if he's not, it's not like it matters. This doesn't affect the existing taint of the GOP. It merely confirms it.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Classic. The GOP slowly sliding into an irrelevant regional party based upon hate. May God have mercy on their souls.
    The idea is idiotic

    But I don't see how "lobbyist holds press conference about a bill he wants to present" constitutes "GOP supports this". Bit of a jump, I think.

    Well, from Palin to Santorum to King there's enough stupid to worry.

    Correct. The man is a nobody trying to drum up business for his podcast show. His goal was to get us to talk about him, and he succeeded.

    not really. just another radical spouting off. no one in the GOP congress would even support it or even consider it. this is a non-issue that they are trying to dig up as usual since liberals have a hard time actually bringing up real points.

    Alinsky is a live an well in the radical left wing.

    Well, you just list credibility by misusing Salsinky. It means you not the propaganda, but not the real work.

    Ridiculous. This bill is actively denying rights to a certain group of people - which is unconstitutional.
