Exceprted from Op Ed by Fareed Zakaria Opinion Writer
Thought about posting the whole article but want to stimulate debate. Here are the two sides of the economic argument.
Do you favor one or the other ... or does America need both, and why?

OBAMA PLAN = TASTES GREAT
Obama has been making the case that the U.S. economy needs investment — in infrastructure, education, training, basic sciences and technologies of the future. Those investments, in the president’s telling, have been the key drivers of American growth and have enabled people to build businesses, create jobs and invent the future.
ROMNEY PLAN = LESS FILLING
Romney argues that America needs tax and regulatory relief. The country is overburdened by government mandates, taxes and rules that make it difficult for businesses to function, grow and prosper, he says. He wants to cut taxes for all, reduce regulations and streamline government. All this, in his telling, will unleash America’s entrepreneurial energy.
And I will laugh at both of them.....both are just using the same old same talking points to get elected.
Neither one of the has any clue about how to go about doing either.
And, sorry I don't drink Miller Lite beer btw.
Well I don't drink it either.
The article is kinda interesting, tho.
I may post more of it if anyone other than you and I end up talking about it.
Not that I mind one-on-one forums with you.
(As long as I can WIN).
