Ron Paul in an exasperated tone during the Iowa debates: “All these trade sanctions!…this is why we still don’t have a trade relationship with Cuba.”
In Damon's world, all public school teachers are selfless angels. Government workers and Hollywood entertainers are impervious to economic incentives. And anyone who disagrees is a know-nothing, "corporate reformer" ingrate who hates education.
The problem of course is that the 2 million advanced manufacturing job openings that Obama, Immelt and Chenault are talking about really don’t exist.
