sure. And you took several tedious paragraphs to attempt to smear Josh Barro. My way is MUCH more expeditious!
This person has said it best to answer the condemnation of Phil Robertson' osh Barro, you should start looking for a new job now. The three loose points you made failed to support your article. Robertson said the blacks around him were treated just fine. Josh Barro was not there; therefore, cannot weigh in on the topic. Robertson's observation and opinion. The groups Robertson mentioned do not honor Jesus, bottom line. He never stated a lack of Jesus made them do it. Finally, his statement about *** never included the word hate. I won't bother dissecting it because you failed to make a point altogether.
Love Josh Barro the policy wonk; hate Josh Barro the Business Insider "writer" who produces garbage like this
Josh Barro we have the freedom of independent thought and beliefs or least we used to have them you ignorant journalist.
I feel like some of my family members could have written those letters to Josh Barro.

Re: Phil Robertson and A&E I love how people who are virulently anti-gub'mint are trying to use the gub'mint to get their way. The first amendment protects you from being punished by the government, not your employer. A&E is not the government, it's a private company. Phil hasn't been arrested and thrown in jail, he was suspended from his job. I'm sure if any one of us ran around our jobsite (or while acting as a representative of the company) telling people that *** people are evil and that black people were better off during the Jim Crow years we'd be suspended or fired too. He can say what he wants, A&E decided to suspend him because he reflects poorly on their brand. Freedom of speech does not mean a guaranteed paycheck. As journalist Josh Barro said, "there's no first amendment right to star in a reality show." Besides, I don't know why the Sarah Palin crowd is complaining about A&E suspending him. If they're as pro-business and anti-regulation as they say they are, they'll understand that A&E made . ...

"Conservatives have no idea what to do about recessions…. Conservatives favor the same set of economic policies when the economy is weak and when it is strong…. The implication is that conservatives believe there is nothing in particular the government should do about economic cycles…. As with health care and bank regulation, economic recessions are a policy question to which conservatives have not the wrong answer, but no answer.” - Josh Barro of Business Insider Recessions Create Misery: GOP Favors "No Answer" To A Possible The Answer
Josh Barro is no liberal. We need more conservatives like him!
The problem with Uber's giant surge pricing spike this past storm weekedn isn't easily dismissed by random (and poorly substantiated) free-market economics, as Josh Barro's recent post in BI suggests. The problem is that it's a mismatch with Uber's brand, and a real PR problem. Their stated reason for raising prices by 7x (to match supply with demand during spikes), is such an obvious LIE that people are right to be skeptical. The airline industry uses a similar practice, raising prices when they think demand will warrant it (e.g. if you try to buy a same-day ticket to London in business class, you will pay full full price), and many other industries are experts at this as well. I don't fault anyone (least of all Travis Kalanick and his awesome team) for trying to do demand-based pricing. What you won't see, however, is the airline/hotel/car rental industry trying to put a smiley face on a bold, blatant, unapologetic grab for more revenue. They mostly don't address the question of how their "surge" pricin ...

In this society, The Few control The Many, assisted suicide is all the rage, and The Many are reassured by their townhouse-living technocrat overlords that the bulldozers dispersing their free speech and the soylent green that feeds them is all… for the greater good. Although there were many advance warnings, now that it is too late, America is learning that under ObamaCare there are losers -- millions of them -- and almost all among the working and middle class. Up to 20 million will lose the insurance President Obama reassured them they could keep, and as the cost of premiums and deductibles spike, they will find their health care choices limited. But the only reaction to this human carnag ...

hris Christie Is About To Win A Landslide, And He Wants Republicans Everywhere To Understand Why Business InsiderBy Josh Barro | Business Insider – 1 hour 43 minutes ago.. christie mary pat christie toms river Josh Barro/Business Insider Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) speaks to a campaign rally in Toms River, New Jersey, on Nov. 2, 2013 Mitt Romney's infamous "47%" remarks were a despairing message to the Republican Party: only a bare majority of Americans are interested in anything other than a government handout. Republicans can forget about landslides. Their best hope is to line up nearly all of the non-taker voters to win by a slim majority. As Gov. Chris Christie (R) prepares to romp to a landslide re-election in New Jersey on Tuesday, he has a message for Republicans everywhere: There's no need to limit yourself to 53% if you stop despairing and follow my lead. On Sunday evening, here's what Christie told Morris County voters, at a rally held by the New Jersey Outdoor Alliance: We need to show the R ...
All In with Chris Hayes Agenda Thursday night on All In with Chris Hayes: President Obama has fallen victim to the same second term downward spiral as his predecessor, George W. Bush, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. A Virginia gubernatorial election fell in both presidents’ fifth year in office, but thanks to the rise of the Tea Party, the political environment in the commonwealth has shifted significantly since ‘05. Guest host Steve Kornacki will look at Obama’s ratings fall through the lens of the VA race with E.J.

Kathleen Sebelius Told Congress She Can't Enroll In Obamacare — And She's Wrong Business InsiderBy Josh Barro | Business Insider – 10 hours ago Email Kathleen Sebelius AP Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius (D) testified before the House Energy and Commerce Committee Wednesday about the rocky rollout of the Affordable Care Act's insurance exchanges. Twice, Republican representatives asked her a stock question: If Obamacare is so great, why don't you enroll in a plan through the exchanges? This is an inane question. Sebelius is both a federal employee and old enough to qualify for Medicare. Asking Sebelius why she doesn't decline the Federal Employee Health Benefits Plan and Medicare so she can enroll though the exchange is kind of like asking the Secretary of Agriculture why he doesn't decline his salary so he can qualify for food stamps, if food stamps are so great. But just because a question is inane doesn't mean you're allowed to give a wrong answer to it. Sebelius did that twic ...
Obamacare Deadline Delayed; Beware the “Insurance Death Spiral” Says Josh Barro Thu Oct 24th, 2013 6:56 PM EDT Glitches and tech problems that are plaguing the healthcare.gov website could lead to additional Obamacare delays. Josh Barro, politics editor at Business Insider, tells The Daily Ticker, "The government needs to get the website up and running as soon as possible." If it doesn't and only the sickest Americans sign up--because younger and healthier individuals don't--there could be an "insurance death spiral," says Barro. He explains: "If only people who are especially sick buy health insurance, then you end up with a pool of people who are really expensive to cover, so insurers have to respond to that by raising premiums. Then more people drop out of insurance because it gets more expensive and you have a death spiral where only extremely sick people paying extremely higher premiums are in the insurance market."

Immigration reform passes the US Senate; now begins the hard part | 9Digg - What the web is talking about right now comprehensive immigration reform bill that would reshape the population and workforceof the United States today passed the Senate with a bipartisan vote of 68-32. From there it will go to the House of Representatives, where it must be approved for final passage. It’s no surprise that the bill did well in the Senate. It enjoys the support both of business lobbyists and of the Democratic party’s key constituencies. Things get harder now because in the Republican-controlled House, immigration skeptics have more power. It’s not clear whether the speaker, the Republicans’ John Boehner, can politically afford to let a bill that most Republicans oppose pass largely with votes from the Democratic minority. Some, like Business Insider’s Josh Barro, think it could happen, because many Republicans in fact support the bill, though they can’t be seen to vote for it: … For many, many House R ...

I was reading and listening to some of the stuff Josh Barro had to say tonight. He is a reporter from Bloomberg TV. He seems like a sellout for the Liberal party entirely, but this is where I think people should listen to someone like him because his points are valid. If your conservative or liberal, I think it's best to listen to everyone's ideas and poach the *** out of them. Who cares where they idea came from? I know I don't, when you hear a good idea... pass it along. Hopefully we can stop this partisan crap and just find the best ideas out there.

david brooks in latest column: In contrast to many members of the conservative political-entertainment complex, they are data-driven, empirical and low-key in tone. They are united more by a style of feedback and mutual scrutiny than by a common agenda. Some politically unorthodox people in this conversation, such as Josh Barro of Bloomberg View, Meghan Clyne of National Affairs and Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute, specialize in puncturing sentimentality and groupthink. Since Nov. 6, the G.O.P. has experienced an epidemic of open-mindedness. The party may evolve quickly. If so, it’ll be powerfully influenced by people with names like Reihan, Ramesh, Yuval and Derek Khanna.

Josh Barro throws down the gauntlet to the Libertarian Party
To all my friends who love NJ Govenor Christie, I posted this as comment to another one of my post. So if you didn't see it here it is. As of July, New Jersey's unemployment rate stands at 9.8%: higher than the national average, fourth worst among the 50 states and the highest level in 35 years. The rate is higher than on the day Christie took office in 2010 and nearly a full percentage point higher than earlier this year, when Christie's State of the State address exultantly and repeatedly claimed that a "New Jersey Comeback" was under way. "A hard truth Christie absolutely will not tell is that every one of his budgets has been unbalanced by more than $2.5 billion," notes Bloomberg news blogger Josh Barro, citing Christie's bad habit -- started by previous governors -- of skimping on payments into the state's pension fund. This year, for example, Christie paid just over $1 billion into the fund, a record amount but far less than the $3.74 billion that actuaries said was needed, according to Barro. Those ...
Mitt the twit famously proposes to cut taxes by 20%, and to avoid increasing the deficit by closing “tax loopholes” to increase revenue. Equally famously, The Mitt refuses to describe exactly which “tax loopholes” will be closed. A lot of professional tax and economic analysts don’t think it can be done. In the face of withering criticism from Josh Barro at Bloomberg, the Romney campaign sent an email to Barro, saying, In fact, no fewer than six independent studies have confirmed the soundness of the Governor’s tax plan. Rather than wasting time trying to discredit the proposals of the Republican nominee, perhaps Mr. Barro and other journalists should investigate President Obama’s tax reform package. Or, more accurately, his lack of one. Jonathan Burks Deputy Policy Director Romney for President And Mr. Burks was kind enough to forward links to the “six independent studies.” Josh Barro’s review and analysis of the “six independent studies” is roughly what a Cuisinart™ does to che ...
That Mitt Romney's economic plans are slapdash is practically beyond argument. (To see just how slapdash, read Josh Barro on his tax proposal and Glenn Kessler on his jobs proposal.) The question is why.
The Tax Policy Center recently concluded that it’s mathematically impossible to keep all of Romney’s promises for tax cuts and still reduce the deficit. Other economic pundits from Paul Krugman to Josh Barro agree. So who’s likely to get slammed? Many suspect the middle class. Still, it’s hard to tell, given that Romney has been less than forthcoming about the specifics of his plan. At Tuesday night’s debate and in many media appearances, Romney has avoided giving details of his plan. Watch him skirt the issue every chance he gets.

"On the National Review’s website, editor Rich Lowry called Derbyshire’s column “appalling” and asserted that “no one at National Review” shares his views. But Lowry did not indicate whether Derbyshire would continue to be employed. Does the National Review have a no tolerance policy for racism? For the National Review, which has frequently complained about unfair accusations of racism, this ugly moment provides an pportunity to demonstrate leadership. As National Review contributor Josh Barro writes in Forbes:This is the problem for Lowry and other conservatives who want to be taken seriously by broad audiences when they write about racial issues. Lowry wrote a column containing advice for black Americans. Why should black Americans take him seriously while he’s employing Derbyshire? If Lowry wants NR to be credible on race, he should start by firing John Derbyshire. ~ ThinkProgress.org
