Republicans controlled Congress for 6 of the Clinton years plus many of the Bush years.<quoted text>
Dave has refused repeatedly to answer the question of what legislation did the Dems pass to reform Fannie and Freddie prior to the Housing Bubble Burst.
It was well known that their was a problem for almost a decade. So put up Sonic, name ONE dem who voted for reform of Freddie and Fannie when these laws were purposed.
The only attempt they made was when Bush tried a power grab to put F & F oversight under White House control. Even Republicans voted no.
F & F were participants in the sub prime mortgage fiasco but they were not the creator of the sub prime mortgagenor the cause of the collapse.
2007 was te first time since 1993 that Democrats controlled both houses.
So in the decade preceding 2006, Republicans basically controlled Congress.
