    personal or technical attack on you brother.....especially not towards another fellow Chicagoan.....it was more an excuse to continue to point out the fallacy of neoliberal economic mythology.....that the Govt is revenue constrained, just like a household or business....this is patently false.  
    From a purely political POV, you have some valid points.....but its not my job to look past the blatant disregard the neo-liberals (Obama included)) have for our economic reality....Obama even said that we had run out of money in one interview.  This is the type of thinking that ultimately dooms the progressive economic agenda....the false belief that we must "tax the rich" in order to "get the money" to spend on infrastructure, health care, etc.....The US Govt is the monopoly issuer of the US dollar, the gold standard has been over for 40 years and its time to start acting like it.   No personal offense, yours was simply a comment that my comment was relevant to.
