Don't Count on it, Warren

Excerpted from Christiane Amanpour's interview with Warren Buffet, Chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway

"The rich are always going to say that, you know, 'Just give us more money and we'll go out and spend more and then it will all trickle down to the rest of you.' But that has not worked the last 10 years, and I hope the American public is catching on," Buffett explained.

Government Intervention in the Economy Works!

A significant portion of the right-wing attack on Democrats is that we support an activist role for government. Remember how our erstwhile critics slammed us for supporting the GM bailout?

Follow the link and listen to Austan Goolsbee, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors, as he discusses GM's rising fortunes. Hmmm...hear this on Fox?

All You Need to Know About Everything

The above chart from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office tells us a couple of things:

1. Social security ain't a problem.

2. Obama's co-chairs's (Bowles and Simpson) recommendations for deficit reduction are silly.

3. As a country, we have to address health care costs.

Hey, you win a few, you lose a few....and we won this one!

Thanks to all the volunteers who made it happen in Newburyport and our sister communities of Amesbury, Newbury, Salisbury, and West Newbury!

We had over 150 volunteers in total, great participation from Newburyport High School students, and incredible cooperation between the Democratic candidates. On Election Day, all polls were covered by volunteer poll checkers and precinct captains, signs were held, doors were knocked, and over 4,000 calls were made to Get Out The Vote.

Here are some photos from our journey together over the last months....
