    Doesn't mean it's not true.

    Sounds nice.

    Pity it doesn't address some issues in greater detail, like what types of jobs and in what fields and if they're full time and other details, or when giving Trump a boost when pointing out "Obamacare" was no longer affordable, or other issues at all, including college costs (not loans and dancing around issues since plenty of private banks are more than happy to take on that type of student loan debt, we mean costs). We always hear about "job creators" but yet they never talk about the workers, aka "wealth creators".

    But at least he declared "Paul McCartney day" and helped hand out more corporate welfare, especially to big sports teams and their stadium demands, since some drugged up singer 50 years ago and deciding that big sports teams can't afford anything without taxpayers paying the bulk of it is more important than teachers, citizens, and workers.

    I think a lot of people are becoming petered out over politics. Any good he truly has done is going to pale. Especially when other Democrats in the state have article after article calling them "phonies" or "sellouts" (Franken, Klobuchar, etc) based on their voting that even I have to admit he's pretty darn decent if he's managed to avoid the media in that way by being a decent politician that will fairly compromise and be clean and ethical as a politician.

    And things must have changed big-time since 2014:

    etc etc, but obviously my source taken is as biased as the one you used to give. But I've linked to Huffington in the past as well. I've no bias when using biased sources from either side. Never said why... don't need to, it's not relevant...

    Actually no. I thought it might be a nice aside to the barrage of Election-related threads. Good for Utah. BTW, thanks for the post thermodynamic...

    We can't really perform large-scale scientific experiments in "political science". But, we can refute statements like, "It is impossible to prosper when taxes on the rich are high." Because, we have an existence proof. Likewise, Utah may be an example of how to prosper when taxes on the rich are low.

    In my personal experience, the entire U.S. economy grew faster and inequality was less pronounced when income (spending, really) taxes on the rich were high. Strangely, I feel nostalgic, economically speaking that is, about the 1960's, when, apparently, taxes were optimal:

    Hilary is a conservative, not a liberal.

    Hillary is a weird hybrid of the worst aspects of both IMO.
