Clear The Air

Listen, fine, I'm not Greg Mankiw, but the commentariat missed the boat on Obama's deal completely.

Here's the deal, plain and simple. A tax cut passed into law that was set to expire because that's how it had been budgeted. The economy drifted into a black hole, and the reason why liberals want to extend the tax cuts for the non upper class in the U.S. is because it is the middle class that is hurting from the recession, not the upper class. How is that so hard to understand?

People don't have work, and we're sticking to our previous economic ideology? At this point, I'm throwing the kitchen sink of economic tools so that I don't have people with pitch forks forming mobs. And by the way, that constituent who told Mike Pence, "I can get another job, but I can't get another country." Do me a favor, and call me when your unemployment runs out, or try to tell that to someone who can't find a job. At this point, I would venture a guess there are more countries than available job openings per job applicant.
