Yeah, less scandals, less money taken out of our checks, less confusion about Obamacare, less costs paying for Obamacare, less fear and uncertainty about our health care, less concern about the government becoming Big Brother, less poverty, less unemployment, less pretending like the opposition doesn't exist, less power grabbing.

Yes, we would have less than what we have now.

So thanks a lot.

Good guess. Especially since even Romney didn't know what he was saying......

... and the Ryan blueprint for funds has taken a beating.

Clearly reality is hitting cons now.

Hey, Barney Frank: The Government Did Cause the Housing Crisis

Peter WallisonDec 13 2011, 11:20 AM ET

Congressman Frank, of course, blamed the financial crisis on the failure adequately to regulate the banks. In this, he is following the traditional Washington practice of blaming others for his own mistakes. For most of his career, Barney Frank was the principal advocate in Congress for using the government's authority to force lower underwriting standards in the business of housing finance. Although he claims to have tried to reverse course as early as 2003, that was the year he made the oft-quoted remark, "I want to roll the dice a little bit more in this situation toward subsidized housing." Rather than reversing course, he was pressing on when others were beginning to have doubts.

You can't.
And no, you did not have to be federally insured to not comply with CRA. There is also a capital thresh hold. And then only if an institution wishes to go into other merger and financial endeavours that GLB opened up.
Geez son. You really need to get away from the conservative talking points and blaming non cons for the financial problems.
and now you are back pedaling and you didnt make the point which it was me that knew non FDIC banks did not have to comply with Community Reinvestment Act.

Many Republican senators have tea party opposition in primary which may further destroy the republicans.

As the republicans opposed Social Security, opposition to Obamacare fits in well with the republican distaste for the average American.

Correction. Democrat recession. Pelosi & Reid, now Obama.
The recession started in the 4th quarter of 2007.

Please list the legislation they passed in the first 10 tenths of 2007 that created this recession.

I keep asking, & you keep not answering.

In fact, none of you right whiners can answer.

I mean it couldn't possibly be the Republican run White House, Republican run Congress, every department of the Federal Government run by Republicans. Nooooooo.

9 million fewer participants, dickhead, since Obama took office. Use whatever calculation and lame excuse you want. 12% is the actual unemployment rate. Numbers don't lie, but Democrats do.
I guess there's some honor in defending your employer, but you give it all up when you lie for him.
Did the way they calculate the unemployment rate change?

No.

So how could it be a lying.

And really, blaming Obama for the effects of the Bush recession is just pathetic

Majority leaders Pelosi and Reid were the chief Congressional cooks in the kitchens of Hell when W left office determining the spending levels you idiot.

The Hells kitchen chef's Pelosi and Reid cooked-up and produced nothing but poison, losing 750,000 jobs per month and still cooking-up more poison for America when W was and left office, something, an overdose of poison even a sellout obama still can't recover from today you moron...

Hardly.

All those billions wasted. What a loser!

The Genius got the majority of votes. TWICE.

Not once.....twice!

Wow!

This ACA in October.

GUARANTEED MEDICAL INSURANCE BY LAW. BY FEDERAL LAW.

I wonder if Obama will plead ignorance on this one, too?

No, just the percentages. You accept the unprecedented numbers and blame it on the calculation. You call it a recovery, it's nothing of the kind. You blaming Bush is a tacit admission of Obama's utter incompetence and your obsequious fawning.
