Implementing austerity programs will ensure that Democrats will hold the Congress another 50 years like they did last century. The point is that "unemployment" is not a mandate. Ask George Bush senior. Romney and Republicans had better think long and hard on this in 2013 or 2006 is going to repeat itself in 2014.
The point is that Democrats got swept into office in 2006 and 2008 by running against Bush and running against Republicans. Democrats did not provide solutions with one really big exception: healthcare. Mitt Romney is running against Obama: not for Mitt Romney. Running against is far more effective than running for. What this means is that Democrats have 0 incentive to be "bipartisan" just as Republicans have 0 incentive to be "bipartisan" today. The only way Romney is going to get anything done is if Republicans control it all and pass legislation unilaterally. If that happens and Republicans bring austerity by cutting social programs, and they will.
Republicans had no answer to health care prior to 2006 and the only answer now is to repeal Obamacare. And in the words of Mitt Romney, "use the emergency room." Today 50 million Americans have no health care. That's up from 40 million when Obama was elected. Obamacare will provide healthcare to 30 million, still leaving 20 million uninsured. Republicans will repeal Obamacare and then 60 million people will have no healthcare. How long do you think emergency rooms can sustain providing primary care for people at this rate?
The thesis presented here is what sunk George Bush the fist, even after having a 92% approval rating given the success of the first gulf war. I predict that after Romney is elected, Republicans are going to pretend like they have a mandate to implement ALL Republican policies and not just unemployment. Then, just as in 2006, at some point the voting public is going to wake and realize that Republicans are doing things they do not like and sweep back in the Democrats. In 2012 Republicans have a choice: begin to work with Democrats or remain stuck on the "all or nothing" mentality of the Senate today. Given the incumbency rate and the right-wing media, I'm going to go with all or nothing.

Goodman is arguing that corruption doesn't exist, that monopolies are not the objective of all corporations through government corruption and buying out the competition. Every single corporation in America buys out its competition and buys out the government so as not to compete but to obtain success via the golden rule. Goodman's answer is more despotism and corruption in an era where arguably it doesn't matter which party you vote for: corruption is what rules in Washington. God Bless!

"The job creators help the poor. " Ha ha ha! There is only, oh, I don't know, all of human history that says otherwise. You all should try reading, "The Christmas Carol", to see just how much your rhetoric matches Scrooge to the "T". The free market has another name: social Darwinism. The strong prevail and the week and the poor suffer tremendously. Competition = Darwinism. It is that simple. God Bless!

"They're going to have a lot if the minimum wage keeps going up. Businesses will pay older workers with experience to take those jobs rather than paying young people with little or no work experience. " You are insane. Health care costs for a company will spike through the roof hiring older workers. Better to hire inexperienced young workers, or better yet, workers in foreign countries that work for next to nothing. There will never be jobs for people over 60, 70, 80. You people live in some weird universe. God Bless!

You all interpret "the meek shall inherit the Earth" as a mission statement,: make sure as much misery and suffering exists as is humanly possible. Take care! God Bless!
