Well, I Guess Hillary Would Not Be a Fan of the Show-Me Institute
Apparently, Senator Clinton has no intention of listening to anything that an economist might say (via Andrew Sullivan’s Daily Dish):
George Stephanopoulos began his televised interview with Senator Hillary Clinton by asking if she could name a single economist who supports her plan for a gas tax suspension.
She did not. "I’m not going to put in my lot with economists," she said on ABC’s "This Week" program. A few moments later, she added, "Elite opinion is always on the side of doing things that really disadvantages the vast majority of Americans."
So I guess there is no point to asking her about a phase-out of the city earnings tax. Considering that a few months back she listed management of the economy (a terrifying thought that anyone thinks they can or should do that) as her primary interest as president, you’d think she’d at least fake a little respect for all the economists out there.
