Only by amending the Constitution, which Congress cannot do on its own.
"The Constitution provides that an amendment may be proposed either by the Congress with a two-thirds majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate or by a constitutional convention called for by two-thirds of the State legislatures. None of the 27 amendments to the Constitution have been proposed by constitutional convention. The Congress proposes an amendment in the form of a joint resolution. Since the President does not have a constitutional role in the amendment process, the joint resolution does not go to the White House for signature or approval." http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/cons...

And you should read the rest of the list.
From the start, Bush embraced a governing philosophy of deregulation. That trickled down to federal oversight agencies, which in turn eased off on banks and mortgage brokers. Bush did push early on for tighter controls over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, but he failed to move Congress. After the Enron scandal, Bush backed and signed the aggressively regulatory Sarbanes-Oxley Act. But SEC head William Donaldson tried to boost regulation of mutual and hedge funds, he was blocked by Bush's advisers at the White House as well as other powerful Republicans and quit. Plus, let's face it, the meltdown happened on Bush's watch.
Yes, skippy the LEFT has been posting anti-Bush section of the article without acknowledging Clinton and others listed too.

<quoted text>"Park Ridge is an affluent Chicago suburb with a population at the 2010 census of 37,480 residents.[1] It is located 15 miles (24 km) northwest of downtown Chicago. It is close to O'Hare International Airport, major expressways, and rail transportation. It is a part of the Chicago metropolitan area, bordering two northwestern neighborhoods of Chicago's Far North Side (Edison Park and Norwood Park)."..."Park Ridge's most recognizable landmark is the Pickwick Theatre, an Art Deco building dating back to 1928. It is a movie theater and a venue for plays and concerts. In 1975, the theater was named to the National Register of Historic Places."... "The uptown area is currently under development. There are new buildings, condominiums and stores located across from the Park Ridge Public Library." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Park_Ridge,_Illi...
and your point is? Hillary Clinton was born there in one of the most affluent suburbs of Chicago, and yet she is poor? like all democrats? is this what you are trying to say? Your cut and paste forgot to mention that it has no retail base for taxes. So they really soak the working guy. Before O'bama left office in Illinois that pushed a law through that people who don't have a pot to piss in, nor have ever worked in their lives deserve public housing in places like Park Ridge.

A study by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that Democrats revamping the CRA led to riskier lending by banks.
"There is a clear pattern of increased defaults for loans made by these banks in quarters around the (CRA) exam. Moreover, the effects are larger for loans made within CRA tracts" or predominantly low-income and minority areas.

Now include Clinton and others also listed in the article and you will have a balanced viewpoint.

High property taxes in Park Ridge hasn't affected the residents remaining incredibly wealthy by anyone's standards.

Won't speak for Galt but when asked what I thought I said let them fail. Somebody will buy up the pieces and things will move on. More than likely we would be far ahead of where we are now economically.

Galt understands that regulations such as those passed by Park Ridge and other affluent suburbs are designed to keep out undesirable elements of society. Similar bans on on-street overnight parking allow the police to identify those who do not belong in the neighborhood, if you get the drift.
And they all can have guns. Makes it real easy to patrol the street:)unlike Chicago.

<quoted text>Me neither. And I invested out in the Clinton admin. Anyone that had a clue had to see this was never going to end well. I traveled all over the country at that time and could not believe the amount of housing and businesses popping up in a weeks' time. I kept asking "who is buying these houses"? where are all the people coming from? Why is this happening? I was just a working schmuck then with a good job-so I started investing out of the country-because like I said-this was never going end well.
It's called capitalism son.

You know, the stuff you cons have been promoting and somehow irrationally tie to the Constitution? Well, my Constitution anyway, not yours.

You really are out of the loop to claim to be reasonable.
Obama spoke in front of the United Nations TWO WEEKS after the attack still blaming the video. Even Hillary and Panetta admitted a week earlier it was a terrorist attack.
Horseshit, I heard him on the 12th or 13th describe it as an "act of terror".

By "loop" you must be referring to the O'Reilly "Spin 'til they puke" Zone.

Seriously? You can't see that if Obama had admitted to a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11 after announcing to everyone on the campaign trail he personally had al Qaeda on the run because he killed bin Laden that he wouldn't look ridiculous just weeks before the election?
He just looked ridiculous instead after the election because everyone knew he lied to win the election.
That makes a lot of people angry - reasonable people.
People were angry when Romney bowed out son.

Fart news couldn't believe what they were reporting was wrong.

So, you would have let the big banks fail , big corporations fail , let the country fall into a Great Depression and then do nothing but hope and pray 'someone' will come to save the day?

<quoted text>poster Death of Tenzing is just another low informed voter who is stuck on "but, it's all Bush's fault, Obama inherited a mess."
meanwhile, Kenyans are upset that he won't be visiting his place of birth during his gazillion dollar vacation this summer with Moochelle and the girls and their 100 closest BFFs.
What eludes them is Bush "inherited" a recession after the dot-com bubble burst. The same dot-com bubble Clinton capitalized on and, luckily, was able to exit the stage before it went boom.

So Bush basically got stuck with the dot-com crash and 9/11 right after Clinton said, "Exit stage right!" like Snagglepuss.
