My God, the recession started 4th quarter 2007. Now, show me the legislation they passed that created that recession.<quoted text>
Both parties are guilty...but only your party seems to forget it was your party who had control of Congress for two years before the crisis and two years after and that it was your party who put up the biggest resistance to reining in Fannie and Freddie despite numerous warnings of an impending disaster beginning as early as 2003.
Don't forget it was your party who voted for both wars.
And it is your party who points fingers at everyone but themselves.
Bush had been president for over 6 years.
Republicans headed every department of the federal gocverment for 6years.
But hey, it was those 9 months, right Carol.
Who pushed the unfunded war in Iraq? Republicans
Who passed the unfunded Bush Tax Cuts - Repubicans
Who passed the unfunded expansion to Medicare? Republicans
Who set record earmark spending?
Who tore down the wall between banks & Investment houses - Republicans
Who deregulated the financial institutions - Republicans.
Who mismanaged both the Afghanistan & Iraq wars? Republicans
So Carol;, The blame falls mainly on the Repubicans.
The exact sames one screaming about the dent - the debt they blew up under Bush.
