1. The Buffett Rule -- zero jobs and zero deficit-reduction

2. The Bowles-Simpson debt reduction panel -- a political stunt designed to look like responsible governing

3. The Community Living Assistance Services and Supports (CLASS) Act -- implementation has been... problematic

4. The Volcker Rule -- ineffective response to GOP victory in Massachusetts

5. The Council on Jobs and Competitiveness -- it's chairman, GE's Jeffrey Immelt, will be voting for Romney in November

6. The Framework for Shared Prosperity and Shared Fiscal Responsibility -- Obama's "black box" budget

7. Going after oil market manipulators and speculators--"Investigate, baby, investigate"
