For 6 out of 8 years Bush and Cheney had a Republican House, a Republican Senate, a Republican Supreme Court, Most Republican Governors, and most Republican State Houses all across America.<quoted text>
Hummmm, to pass any budget it must first be passed by the House and YOU Democrats controlled the House for the entire eight years Reagan was in office.
But you will give Bill Clinton credit, and not Newt Gingrich, because Bill Clinton signed into law four of Newts balanced budgets!!!
As far as Bush-41 and -43, neither was a conservative. And under Bush Congress was dominated by the Democrats whereas under -43 Congress was dominated by Country Club RINOs.
You do know a lot of Conservatives, like myself, are not happy with either Bush over their fiscal policies, don't you?
I hope you are also not satisfied with 12 years of Reagan/Bush.
By todays standards even Reagan was a RINO.
Encore: United States of ALEC
November 30, 2012 / http://tinyurl.com/cuwj5qy
In an encore broadcast, Moyers & Company presents “United States of ALEC,” a report on the most influential corporate-funded political force most of America has never heard of — ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council. A national consortium of state politicians and powerful corporations, ALEC presents itself as a “nonpartisan public-private partnership”. But behind that mantra lies a vast network of corporate lobbying and political action aimed to increase corporate profits at public expense without public knowledge.
In state houses around the country, hundreds of pieces of boilerplate ALEC legislation are proposed or enacted that would, among other things, dilute collective bargaining rights, make it harder for some Americans to vote, and limit corporate liability for harm caused to consumers — each accomplished without the public ever knowing who’s behind it. One Wisconsin politician describes ALEC as “a corporate dating service for lonely legislators and corporate special interests.”
“United States of ALEC” is a collaboration between Okapi Productions, LLC and the Schumann Media Center, headed by Bill Moyers, which supports independent journalism and public watchdogs including the Center for Media and Democracy, whose investigators are featured in the report.
