There are so many companies going overseas and small businesses that can't survive anymore because of costly and inefficient regulations and the FED
which causes inflation.
So cheap labor, real estate, infrastructure and less regulations(safety, not financial) have no part either?
There should be less Govt. involvement in the economy,
Agreed, but how much is less and who determines it? Cronyism always seems to spawn in this arena, and with gov regulation, at least the public has
access to the mechanisms and procedures, vs private's ability to hide, destroy, or cook the books.
Regulations are in fact about massive corporations, because through lobbying large corporation executive get to hold regulatory positions, something
that Obama is famous for supporting.
Can I add that ALL politicians/parties do this because it is in THEIR best interests. Yes Obama has done it too, but let's look past him as an
individual and address the bigger picture of Wall ST and Corporations now own a significant portion of congress's interests, period, regardless of
side o the isle!
Not using logic in debates is the new war on the people!
Logic can never be entertained or analyzed in soundbite segments from the media. There are no shows that can fully encompass a discussion or weigh
out of all facts involved, plus they have their own interests. So the logic is up to us to find, but the problem is MOST folks get their info
exclusively from these shows, including msm and fox, where not enough info can be included, leaving shallow talking points and blame assessments to
Maher is provocative and prolly hypocritical at times, but he is still one of the only figures willing(able in the guise of comedy) to call it as he
sees it, right or wrong, he can criticize as he wishes, just like right wing radio does.
I am glad he's around for perspective and balance sometimes.
