    It's not there. And I think a CNNpolled show some 78-81% (depending on which one we're talking about) said not to touch those two. There's that disconnect again.

    The military is more popular in terms of cuts, and there are easier places there to cut. But, fighting two wars, something we didn't have to do, won't be easily ended or dealt with. So costs will continue.

    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.

    Obviously. I thought my sarcasm would be obvious.

    Here is what Obama is doing

    Obama's FY2012 Budget:<br> Taxes, Taxes, and More Taxes

    President Obama released his budget this morning. Rather than focusing on Washington’s over-spending problem, the budget calls for higher taxes on families and small businesses to pay for even more government spending. Under the Obama budget, tax revenues will grow from 14.4% of GDP in 2011 to 20% of GDP in 2021. By comparison, the historical average is only 18% of GDP.


    Then there is this

    Obama budget could boost fees on air travelers - Yahoo! News

    Airline travelers would pay more to help finance airport projects under President Barack Obama's budget plan.

    The president's budget released Monday would raise the "passenger facility charge" to a maximum of $7 from $4.50 per flight to offset $1.1 billion in cuts to airport grants. Airports use the passenger-charge money for FAA-approved safety and expansion projects.

    Just because it's in the president's budget doesn't mean the increased facility charge will fly. Some Republicans with a hand in writing aviation laws have different ideas. Airlines are also fighting the proposal, saying it amounts to a $2 billion tax increase on the flying public. Airline executives argue the increase could discourage more people from flying.

    I'm not sure what this has to do with anything I've said. Please explain.

    Uh-huh. Just like how republicans are incompetent because they are resurrecting the healthcare debate with no chance to overturn the law and even though they lost the original vote to pass it in the first place. I'm sure you'll agree with me here because I'm sure you're a fair minded and critically thinking person, right?

    No the GOP has a mandate that came with the voters choice in 2010. The GOP is trying to get rid of bad law that will put a fiancial burden on taxpayers
