requiring a 20% cash down payment would prevent most of the problems regardless of any legislation....
if a bank feels that loans in a given neighborhood are too risky, regardless of the reason, then they should not make the loans....
for example, a prudent bank would not make loans in high-risk flood zones.....
During the housing bubble, many people upgraded by selling their over-valued homes and putting large down payments on mortgages they still couldn't afford - especially after mid 2007 as unemployment climbed. The housing crisis wasn't caused by government mandated loans - and yes, Freddie and Fannie guarantees encouraged bad mortgages, but didn't cause them. Dig deeper.

Sequester was put in place to force Congress to act. Period.
If it were come to that point, it will be the failure (again) for the likes of Paul Ryan.
FEMA was discussed by Mitt Romney who favors letting states handle it & FEMA to be one of those areas we no longer needed.
Now Mitt will deny it or say he meant something else.
But in those debates when Perry ETAL were cancelling all sorts of aspects of the federal government, Romney had to jump in & throw away FEMA.
I want FEMA to be handled by each state !!!(Your a Crusty Old fake disability Molester/Pervert !!!)

Seems the left have gone on a few of those themselves.
Difference being...Republicans hold themselves accountable. Many Republicans have stepped down due to fellow Republicans pressuring them for much lesser offenses than this administration telling stories for weeks about a stupid video rather coming out and calling four dead Americans the result of an organized terrorist attack on 9/11.
That's the difference between your side and mine.
In a word - accountability.
Accountability??? LOL Hope you, Cheney, and Bush enjoy all your future time together.

Let's all have a moment of silence to honor those killed in Benghazi. Their families deserve respect and should get a sincere apology from Obama for his failure to act and the falsehoods communicated by his adminstration following the attacks.

I have not shopped at Walmart in many years. They do not provide a living wage to their employees, and do not provide them with the hours necessary to afford them the possibility of insurance.
I make it a point to shop local
So you pay more for the same product because you don't like WalMart? I hope you don't run a business. What is a living wage? It is not the responsibility of a business to give employees anything but the pay they agreed to work for.

Come to think of it, I can't think of one Democrat who stepped down who was involved in a scandal because other Democrats pressured them to do so.

I do recall excuses by the barrel-full. But not one drop of accountability comes to mind.

Homer, help me out here. Surely, there has to be one Democrat who stepped down because other Democrats held them accountable.

Nope...still drawing a blank.

As Saul Alinsky said:
"An organizer working in and for an open society is in an ideological dilemma to begin with, he does not have a fixed truth -- truth to him is relative and changing; everything to him is relative and changing."
Search "Clinton CIA human rights purge" to learn how Clinton gutted the CIA, and when Bush took office the US didn't even have a functioning foreign intelligence capability.
Search "Valerie Plame WMD Iraq" to learn how Valerie Plame was a career undercover officer, and was the Director of Operations for the CIA’s Joint Task Force on Iraq, and was the source of information used first by Bill Clinton to repeatedly bomb Iraq, then George Bush to remove Saddam Hussein from power and fight the war the muslim jihad started in their own back yard.
Get back to us with a report after you study a little truth, dupe.
Clinton did not invade Iraq. Oh wait, unless you are talking about your revisionist history & then you blame him for it.

Valerie Plame - the undercover agent exposed by Cheney? That one?

Remember that when your crocodile tearing for other than the diplomats at Benghazi. Cheney does good work--when it comes to feathering his own nest. Romney's big backers in the shipbuilding markets will make sure he's a chip off the old block. Bush, Cheney, and probably more than we would believe, should be spending the rest of their lives behind bars.

Snope is a leftwing dishonest front.

What you are reading there is a slight of hand and it obviously manipulated you!

The truth is that there were two drones and intelligence staff were able to watch what was going on real-time and relay that to the situation room at the White House instantly.

Snopes.... LOL! Notice the other two issues are "indetermined". I guess they couldn't think of a good slight of hand on how to phrase those questions.

The Truth-Challenged President

But the saga did not end there for the American people. The rest of us had to endure the President, Secretary of State Clinton, and UN Ambassador “explaining” to us that what really happened was that those irascible Muslims were all incited out of their minds by a previously unseen, unheard of You Tube video trailer by an unknown American immigrant, a movie that was never made outside the trailer advertising it, in Fool on the Hill style. Their protest had just got out of hand, you see.

Except they all knew when they were saying these very words that they were untrue.

Let us remember that ice use to be a mile thick where New York City now stands. That is over 3 times the height of the Empire State Building. Tell me, just how did man cause all that ice to melt? That same ice formed the Great Lakes!
