This exchange between Craig and Cameron is probably one of the most substantial debates on our economic policy I've seen in quite some time.
If this were happening in the House and Senate, imagine the progress possible.
Or maybe I'm just saying that because it's fun to watch my co-SideTracker hand a winger filled to the brim with the predictable talking points a good, ol' fashioned schooling in the science of money related thingamajigs and ideas.
Cameron too often reduces himself to the debate tactics of one out of his league of understanding, who has bitten off more than he can chew, but he's also presenting a adequate example of the "framing" on this issue that has become so conventional since Reagan that even liberal Democrats enjoying a majority status are still comparing themselves to it.
Democrats are still pitching their policies with "tax cuts" just to sell them, rather than working to redraw the definitions, and allow Americans to -- quite simply -- grow up and recognize the necessity, and even occasional benefit of taxation.
That's another rant, I suppose. For now, just enjoy this conversation.
