Same down here where Mica had to face fellow sitting (R) Adams, that was ugly by the way because Adams was a big mouthed, lying TeaParty scumbag who Mica could only laugh at in debates or at hobnobs.

his gripe? so tell us who that is. tell us about how he's one of the preeminent economists of our time. tell us how he helped write the book on supply side economics. and then tell us how he left the Party because of the fiscal irresponsibility of the Bush admin.
and it's kinda funny how FOX never having him on only lends to his creditability.
Kruger is a Nobel Price Economist than he got a prediction terribly wrong and now has no more authority than the next one.

This person is a self described anti-Republican.

This info shows why-

The guy's main gripe is it causes the CBO more work and he doesn't like the Lauffer curve being calculated.

Obamacare and the private practice Doctor...

no more?

"The left can eliminate them now and make them (physicians) dependent on hospitals for maintaining their earnings. Their quasi-small business owner traits will be traded in for well paid employees of a company, and one that is most likely part of a large corporation through the M&A activity in health care. It took forty-five years, but the progressive steamroller rolls on."

It was explained to Obama "the Not So Genius" that the first reports - issued by CNN as well - was that the justices had struck down the individual mandate.

And who else thought the same thing I and millions of others did? Yes. President Barak Obama. He saw the initial report flash across TV screens in a room adjacent the Oval Office.

But you'd think the world came to a screeching halt because me and Obama heard what was reported by CNN and Fox even though both networks immediately corrected their error.

But Obama "the Not So Genius" got his panties in a wad anyway.

No, Obama did not 'get his panties in a wad'; you did when both CNN and Fox got it wrong,but Fox refused to admit it. Fox looked like the fool's news that it really is.:-D

On buying a home you cannot afford and the suckers that worry about paying...

"It is no wonder that more and more Americans believe the game is rigged. It is no wonder that they buy houses they cannot afford and then walk away from the mortgage when they can no longer pay. Once the social contract is shredded, once the deal is off, only suckers still play by the rules."

Liberals, plastic bags and washing the one's you will have to reuse in California...

"A reminder to shoppers who use reusable grocery bags: Don’t forget to wash them after you’ve emptied them.

Nearly every bag examined for bacteria by researchers at the University of Arizona and Loma Linda University found whopping amounts of bugs. Coliform bacteria, suggesting raw-meat or uncooked-food contamination, was in half of the bags, and E. coli was found in 12 percent of the bags."

All people should have equal access to opportunity.

All people who have earned equal credit ratings should have equal access to capital.

Galt does not believe in classifying people in your terms. "Working class" is particularly offensive because the left means the working poor, where the right would argue that it means all those who work for a living, regardless of income.

The Republican War on Data

By BRUCE BARTLETT

....First, it would require the CBO effectively to do a macroeconomic estimate of many bills just to determine whether the 0.25 percent threshold is met. Thus it will impose an additional work requirement on the agency without providing any additional resources.

But the true purpose of the legislation is to institutionalize the Laffer curve into tax analysis. The Laffer curve says that some tax cuts may pay for themselves by expanding the tax base more than taxes are cut.

There are, of course, some cases where the Laffer curve may be true. But in recent years, Republicans have routinely asserted that all tax cuts pay for themselves. For example, in 2010, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said,“There’s no evidence whatsoever that the Bush tax cuts actually diminished revenue. They increased revenue, because of the vibrancy of these tax cuts in the economy.”

McConnell added,“That’s been the majority Republican view for some time.”

I have many other examples in my files of congressional Republicans denying that tax cuts ever increase the budget deficit. But of course they do.

Bruce Bartlett is a former senior fellow with the National Center for Policy Analysis of Dallas, Texas. Before joining the NCPA, he was deputy assistant secretary for economic policy at the U.S. Treasury Department, where he served from September 1988 to January 1993. In 1987 and 1988, Bartlett was a senior policy analyst in the Office of Policy Development at the White House.

From 1985 through 1987, he was a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C.

Between 1976 and 1984, Bartlett held numerous positions on Capitol Hill. In 1976, he served on the staff of Rep. Ron Paul of Texas as a legislative assistant. In 1977, he joined the staff of Rep. Jack Kemp of New York as a special assistant and staff economist. While with Kemp, Bartlett helped draft the famous Kemp-Roth tax bill. Between 1979 and 1980, he worked for Sen. Roger Jepsen of Iowa as chief legislative assistant. In 1981, Bartlett joined the staff of the Joint Economic Committee of Congress as deputy director, becoming executive director in 1983. Bartlett is a prolific author, having published over 900 articles in national publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and The Washington Post, as well as many prominent magazines such as Fortune. In 1996, one of his columns inspired Bob Dole's 15 percent tax reduction plan.

Bartlett has also written for important academic journals and published four books, including Reaganomics: Supply-Side Economics in Action, published in 1981.

Not completely. There will be a two-tier medical system where the best physicians will work directly for cash.

The reason? They won't be well-paid in the government system, will be forced to unionize, etc.
