Funny, no mention of the FACT that the worst President in history, Ronald Reagan, took out more in loans than all the previous Presidents combined. Or that he started the systematic and deliberate destruction of our country by causing the demise of our manufacturing base, our educational system, our medical institutions, etc... No mention either of the "war" in Iraq that still hasn't been justified. Or why its costs weren't added to the deficit until 2009..
The Community Reinvestment Act had very little to do with the financial state we are in, as much as the "conservatives" would like to believe it did.
The reinvestment act was wrong but it's not causing our problems.

The wars a huge problem. You can't be a conservative and support the wars.

The reinvestment act was not wrong. If you look back at history, the way the country recovered from economic downturns was our government reinvesting in its people and its infrastructure. The effect is not immediate, but will see rewards in the near future.

Quick question..... How can anyone be an American conservative without calling for the recall of NAFTA, GATT, and all those other poor trade agreements that do nothing but sell out this once great country? This country should come first, not the profits and power of a few heads of international corporations and wealthy individuals.

GATT no longer exists. Nevertheless, The United States has to have trade with other nations. If not, most people could not afford the
neccesities of like.

Good question.. The trade agreements have hurt all sides.

Im not saying infrastructure spending is a bad idea. The federal govt should have given the reinvestment money back to the states and let the states choose what to spend it on.

Think of great Obama rail way idea(i dont know if it was part of the reinvestment money or what). it was Take the money and use it on railway or lose it. Ohio lost it because they didn't want anything to do with the idea and they weren't going to let Obama buy votes. California took it and the money was wasted it was a failure. The dumbasses still don't know how much it would cost.

Washington has very little idea about what states need.

The deficit is being reduced? I wish I had what your smoking. What proof do you have of that? I'm making less but being taxed more. Can you explain to me why that is. My work insurance cost more and covers less. Why is that?
You speak like the president. You use great phrases without having proof. Sadly so, most people don't know the difference.
One more thing about the sequester. Obama was trying to scare everyone about not passing HIS sequester but now he is saying most people will not notice. His scare tactic didn't work so he is back pedaling. Doing what he does best!
By the way, what left wing media did you copy and paste this from? At least learn to think and say your own words!
I don't 't know where some of the Republicans are getting their info at or why they are trying to re-write history of the events leading to the sequester, but I remember what happened pretty well. Watched a lot of what was going on LIVE on C-Span. Basically, the repubs were holding the country hostage, threatening to default on debts already OKed in both houses of Congress, so the Obama administration was forced to do something along the lines to sequester because the GOP threatened how it was willing to renege on the trust that the federal government would pay its bills.

The repubs used the debt ceiling by threatening to default as a tool to force the White
House to make cuts in spending, so sequester would NEVER have been suggested if not for this threat of default. BOTH sides
agreed to take the next step together! Democrats wanted the Bush tax cuts repealed and the Repubs wanted to repeal Obama's health care law. That was too much for both sides, so they settled on cuts for security spending,( a pain for republicans) balanced by cuts for domestic spending
(pain for democrats). Both parties thought they could reach an agreement before the deadline so these cuts would not take place. Even Eric Cantor said, "tonight the House prevented default and boosted economic certainty by insuring America pays its bills while we start getting our fiscal house in order."
He went on to say he didn't think the sequester would ever happen because he was confident an agreement would be reached by the deadline,( I believe the republicans also thought an agreement they really could like would be reached long before March because by then, they figured a President Romney , and possibly a newly controlled Republican Senate, would get them all the changes they wanted!!)

So, republicans cannot hide from this acting like Obama shoved it down their throats, because at the time, they 'crowed' how they won a great victory.
Boehner stated he got 98% of what he wanted, so republicans really felt they got the best deal and got the best of the Democrats. They need to owe up and shut-up! When you vote for something, sign it, that means you support bit!

One other thing about the sequester is that no one---Obama, the Democrats or the Republicans ever thought it would come to this. They thought they would reach a deal long before this, but of course, haven't. Obama sill does not want it to happen, but now the Republicans do.

NO kidding... But when there are no tariffs that are protecting our national interests then we are doomed. Every other industrialized country has tariffs on goods coming in. There was a time tariffs provided a very large percentage of the government's income. This is how a country protects its on sovereignty. But that is not what matters anymore to the politicians, or most Americans.
