GREAT THOUGHTS OF PHIL GRAMM, MCCAIN'S ECONOMIC ADVISOR

From Think Progress

- "Until we are on a pay-as-you-go budget, until we have stopped inflation, I do not intend to support any public works project in the United States." Gramm, 10/9/75

- "Minimum wage laws tend to cut the bottom rung off the economic ladder. The plain truth is there should be no minimum wage law in this great land of free enterprise." Gramm, 5/17/89

"We're the only nation in the world where all our poor people are fat." Gramm, 9/6/81

I wonder if this guy considers the military public works? Or perhaps a seperate, more vital part of it that doesn't count?
