    Soledad, you stand corrected. You just said that the president has not turned this economy around. Incorrect. There has been 27 momnths of job growth. Besides, show me where it states in the Constitution that it is the job of the President to create jobs in each of the 50 states. Wouldn't that be the jobs of the Governors?
    Fact Soledad, give the facts not your opinion.

    Will, I love how you phrased that. Yes in terms of dollars the top income earners pay more money, but as a percentage of their income, in actuality the bottom earners pay more of their income to the federal government. Also, basic economic principles dictate a law of supply and demand. We cannot have investment if we don't have demand. Demand comes mainly from the middle class, if we don't have a robust middle class, then we have decreased demand and then the rich people you talk about don't invest. The field of dreams in not an economic policy, if you build it it doesn't mean people will come.

    Here's my issue. You are talking about economic policy without talking at all about the economic policy. We know for the last 3 years Obama has continued the economic policies of George W. bush. In Fact we know that both candidates have the exact same economic policies, and that in reality their is no difference economically between the two.

    Are we going to be discussing at all how the male members of the Michigan Assembly banned a female legislator from speaking on the floor of the assembly cause she used the term vagina during an abortion debate? This is news. Any chance we might cover some news this morning?

    Oh, and lastly, outside of a few construction jobs to build the pipeline, its a big pipe that carries oil, no jobs are created to maintain the pipeline.

    Keystone will not lower gas prices. Oil is a commodity, prices are set by Wall Street now and not the old adage of Supply and Demand. Furthermore, the Keystone pipeline uses oil from tar Sands, which costs more to to extract and refine, which means the oil that eventually makes it to market will make gas more expensive not less. And lastly this type of oil is very corrosive, and in every pipeline its been carried in, yes every pipeline, it has cause corrosion and leaked. Since the pipeline is going over a fresh water aquifer, do we really want to risk contamination of our fresh water supply.
