Senator Menendez, Economists Do Make Policy

Sometimes being a Clinton supporter has its limitations, such as distorting one's view of reality. That happened to Senator Menendez from New Jersey this morning, as the "gas tax debate" continues on:

Economists do make policy, they work at institutions such as Cato, Rand, Center for American Progress and the Brennan Center, etc etc. and lawmakers like you use their findings to write legislation. Though other times it may just be done by a lobbyist so I could be wrong about that policy thing.

Oh and Bob, being the millionaire that you are, do you really believe that you feel the pains of average Americans?

I certainly don't.
