    Remarkable conversation. Obama is a tax-cutter? How did that happen?

    Interesting Podcast as always, however please check up on Francis’ assertion that the trillion dollar budget deficits “just happened” because tax receipts are way down. It’s just simply not true, either in nominal or constant dollars. Are they down a bit? Yes, particularly compared to the mid-2000′s which had record high levels of tax revenue. But there is an enormous difference between the decline and tax revenue and the budget deficit.
