4:00 PM ET – Austan Goolsbee, is an economist who is currently a Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business. Goolsbee formerly served as the Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers and was a member of the cabinet of President Barack Obama. Goolsbee had this to say about Sanders and Bloomberg in the debates:
“I thought it was a little unfair. Bernie Sanders doesn’t advocate communism,” said Goolsbee, who said that the former mayor was clearly talking about Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who together represent the more progressive wing of the Democratic field. “It was a funny line that Mayor Bloomberg had there, but I thought overall that his performance left a lot to be desired.”
The former Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers said that Sanders speaks to a desire to “reject the Trumpism, corporate power, and $2 trillion of tax cuts.” Goolsbee says he supports Pete Buttigieg, the moderate 38-year-old former mayor of South Bend, Indiana because he has “the most sensible plan.”
Still, the former economic adviser for Obama said that Sanders was especially strong when he evoked government support from the other side — the wealthy side.
“I thought Bernie Sanders was pretty effective when he said: ‘You say you don’t like socialism, but how is giving $2 trillion to corporations, not socialism, just upside down socialism?’” Goolsbee said, referring to tax cuts under the Trump administration.

With the politicization of the Coronavirus there seems to be no end to the new lows that the liberals and democrat party will stoop to:
For the second evening in a row on Thursday, ABC’s World News Tonight (and this time NBC Nightly News) seemed intent on whipping the public into a state of fear with suggestions the Trump administration wasn’t adequately responding to the coronavirus (COVID-19) threat. NBC News even tried to shake public coincidence in Vice President Mike Pence’s leadership of the COVID-19 task force assigned to deal with the threat.
ABC special correspondent Kyra Phillips began her report by scoffing at the idea that President Trump had anything to tout when it came to how his administration was handling things. “As stocks swan-dive and coronavirus fears grow, President Trump today praising his administration’s response, now being led by Vice President Mike Pence,” she said.
