I agree with your post. Republicans only care about the wealthiest needs.<quoted text>
90-10's about correct. That 10 is the reason why you (we) have annual vacation, some sick leave, no child labour, more work safety legislation, unemployment insurance, health care (or some weird form of it), pensions, social security, maternity leace (though unpaid) safer automobiles etc. None of the latter was ever legislated by a Republican admin. Thank heaven for that Democrat/liberal/progressive 10%
Pour le reste, plus ca change, plus c'est pareil.
The more things change the more they stay the same.
That was then, this is now.
Obama is cutting food stamps for indigent Americans and gave Billions to Wall Street.
Obama is protecting the robber barons who gave out fraudulent mortgages.
Obama reneged on everything with a Democratic House and Senate.
Obama will cut even more with the upcoming Grand Bargain.
A corporate centrist Democrat is one and the same with a Rightwing Republican.
FBI: 80% of Fraud Attributed To Insiders Not Homeowners
The increased reliance by both financial institutions and non-financial institution lenders on third party brokers has created opportunities for organized fraud groups, particularly where mortgage industry professionals are involved. Combating significant fraud in this area is a priority, because mortgage lending and the housing market have a significant overall effect on the nation's economy. All mortgage fraud programs were recently consolidated within the Financial Institution Fraud Unit, even where the targeted
lender is not a financial institution. This consolidation provides a more effective and efficient management over mortgage fraud investigations, the ability to identify and respond more rapidly to emerging mortgage fraud problems, and a better picture of the overall mortgage fraud problem./ http://tinyurl.com/c85466t
