Tell that to Carol.
Republicans are divided between libertarians and "right to lifers". Division works to the advantage of the Democrats. Point
The Department of Defense and the Department of Justice together have more than enough prison space within the United States to safely and securely house the remaining 166 prisoners currently held in Guantanamo Bay, according to a new report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO).

The report (PDF), commissioned by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), details a clear road map to accomplishing President Barack Obama’s longtime goal of shuttering the controversial military facility.

“This report demonstrates that if the political will exists, we could finally close Guantanamo without imperiling our national security,” Feinstein explained in prepared text.“The GAO report makes clear that numerous prisons exist inside the United States—operated by both the Department of Defense and the Department of Justice—capable of holding the 166 detainees who remain at Guantanamo in an environment that meets the security requirements.”

I can see this happening again.

The Revenue Act of 1932 (June 6, 1932, ch. 209, 47 Stat. 169) raised United States tax rates across the board, with the rate on top incomes rising from 25 percent to 63 percent. The estate tax was doubled and corporate taxes were raised by almost 15 percent.

The provisions of the act applied to the taxable year of 1932 and all subsequent taxable years.

It was signed into law by President Herbert Hoover.

to get an Idea of the Republicans Tax Rate conbined with the Sur Tax in 1932 from the Table provided by the link and this was during the begining of the Great Depression, example take $4,000 in 1932 then multiply it by 16.8844525 which would be equivalent to $67,538 in 2012 under the Republicans Revenue Act of 1932 if it was implemented today and the highest combined tax rate was 63%.

Evidently you are uninformed.
Captial Gains from investments held for less than a year are taxed as regular income.
Captial Income from investments held over a year is what is being discussed as far as returning to rates prior to the Bush tax cut or 20%.
Right now capital gains on investments held over a year are taxed at 15% if you are in the 25% bracket or more.
So, those people you are talking about are not affected by the long term capital gains taxes at all.
No, you don't understand. You are talking about tax rates. I'm talking about people who live off of capital gains and dividends getting hurt because the government is taking more of their money. Which is why they are returning to work and not taking the gains and let the dividends reinvest till the rates come back down or eliminated altogether. Get it now?

So, the courts voted in favor of requiring banks to issue bad loans.

Bad home loans are of two kinds. The first is where the borrower lacks the financial resources to repay the loan. The second is where the property is worth less than the loan and/or is likely to decline in value, such as in depressed neighborhoods.

Once again, politics trumps sanity.
