For some Obama’s re-election represented the coming of the rapture but for the rest of us it was a time to cheer as we realized, with a unified voice the majority of Americans chose the intelligent, human with a great sense of humor over the robot.
How can anyone still wonder why he was re-elected?
Since they started way back in 1940 this group of experts have correctly predicted the winner each presidential election for the past 68 years except for two. Will their record hold true for this, their 18th election?
Who are these experts, you may ask? They are an intelligent group of individuals, 250,000 strong from all 50 states, 90 percent of whom say they would like to president some day. These experts are people you and I may know. They are our neighbors. They are this country’s future leaders. This group of experts are this nation’s students who have thoughtfully considered their choices before voting in this the 18th Scholastic Student Vote.
And who did they pick this year to win the 2012 Presidential Election between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney?
From the New York Times
WASHINGTON — The Congressional Research Service has withdrawn an economic report that found no correlation between top tax rates and economic growth, a central tenet of conservative economic theory, after Senate Republicans raised concerns about the paper’s findings and wording.
The decision, made in late September against the advice of the agency’s economic team leadership, drew almost no notice at the time. Senator Charles E. Schumer, Democrat of New York, cited the study a week and a half after it was withdrawn in a speech on tax policy at the National Press Club.
But it could actually draw new attention to the report, which questions the premise that lowering the top marginal tax rate stimulates economic growth and job creation.
