Has everyone been struck with amnesia? The home mortgage deduction was intended as a stimulus because when a new home is built and purchased, people spend money throughout the economy. When people buy a new house, they also are much more likely to buy things like new appliances, new furniture, not to mention new roads and sidewalks, and maybe a new car to keep up with their new neighborhood. It trickles out through the entire economy.

How reliably could the US verify Iran's compliance with any agreement that might be reached through the proposed negotiations?

Please ask the esteemed correspondent about why the NYTimes was writing about an agreement on 1x1 negotiations with Iran this weekend when NO ONE in the Obama administration would confirm them. It seems highly convenient timing to publish such an article on page 1 of the Sunday paper on the eve of the foreign policy debate.

It seems like a way to divert attention from the Obama administration's failure to secure the consulate in Benghazi on the 9/11 anniversary.

The Libyan situation is more and more complex - are they saying now that Secretary of State Clinton had asked for more security for the embassy? I wonder how much it will be discussed at the debate.
