    this isn't even a bill. lobbyist can't write bills. only congress can write bills. this is a proposal by some nut job. this will never even make it to the floor of the senate or the house.

    True, not what I was talking about. His work has been misrepresented by GOP propaganda.

    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.

    Who's his podcast audience?

    Republicans?
    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.

    From what I know of Congress, lobbyists pretty much write ALL the bills. It's a rare piece of legislation that doesn't get crafted on K street.

    Congress just modifies and votes on them.

    But I'm sure your knowledge is much deeper than mine....

    Like this bill will even pass a committee, or whatever.
    Let alone reach congress or get passed.

    One idiot presenting a stupid bill he had written by people he pays does not law make.

    Whackjobs, clearly. It would be dishonest to suggest that such a hamfisted government intervention into a business' hiring practices is representative of mainstream Republican ideology. (particularly in targeting a specific business for such, which is yet another constitutional violation) A Republican might dislike gay people and might not want to be sued for refusing to hire and/or serve gay people, but only someone seriously messed up would believe it should be illegal to hire gay people.

    A large majority of the public isn't going to "vote" with their wallet because of a single aspect that they disagree with in the NFL. People want the best of both worlds: Watching NFL and having homosexuals play in the NFL.
