But, me, I'm really worried about what Congress is going to do with things like the debt ceiling, the tax cuts, and the fiscal cliff.

according to this article from Forbes. Of course, it makes a million assumptions to arrive at that figure, but that's what economics is all about, right?
It only cost about $190 to make an iPhone4.
In 2010, the iPhone4 retailed at $499. By signing a 2-yr agreement with a service provider, a customer could cut that about in half.
Take into account insanely overpriced accessories, the cost of that phone could be upwards of $700-$1,000.
(For instance, the average "plastic" cover for phones is about $30-$40.... couldn't cost more than a dollar to make.)
but more to the point... it cost about $190 for the chinese to produce it. To even suggest that it would cost 5 times that to be produced in America would require suspended disbelief and a **** ton of political cognitive dissonance.

Not really on the topic of the current administration, but it does have to do with the Democratic Party.
I've been reading up on the '48 election between Tom Dewey and Harry Truman. Truman had no business winning that election, yet he did. It's incredible.

When Mitt Romney was governor of Massachusetts, he "stood in front of a coal plant and pointed at it and said, ‘This plant kills.’"
"When you're surrounded . . . by Redskins'"
and let's note a comment to the article...
As an Apple shareholder, and lover and owner of Apple products, I feel obliged to comment on this article. Paying workers $17 a day is why Tim Cook can earn almost half a billion dollars a year and why Steve Jobs could commission a yacht that costs hundreds of millions. G R E E D. Nothing else to it; American workers are skilled (the Boeing aircraft built in this country attest to it) and supply chain logistics are not a Chinese skill (I spent 24 years working in the logistics industry).
