    Everyone here is pointing out that the basic inputs Nate used are false and can be disproved with real data from verified government sites.

    Nate is being duped and it should be pointed out to him.  Let him blame a researcher.  Maybe their is a Koch funded plant in the office.

    I like long term charts and like many of the data sets that are available from the St. Louis Fed and Wonk Blog.  When I read Nates article earlier this week it really seemed to contain some very strange historical data.

    Nate needs to do some cross checks at least from some reliable sources and not depend on Teabag sources if he wants to be taken seriously in the future.

    Congressional elections have consequences!
