Heard the latest? Observe how Obama actually attacks the source of our inequality. Our liberty to pursue happiness is eroded with ever increasing subsidizing corporations, increasing our inequality. Republicans evades, distorts their support for subsidizing corporations at the expense of our infrastructures , education, Jobs, Health Care, etc, etc.
President Obama is closing the inequality gap by holding the tax evaders accountable. Something the republicans have never in the history of our nation has ever done. Another first for Obama. He has been fighting this fight since 2009.
The US authorities’ biggest success so far came in 2009 when Switzerland’s largest bank, UBS, agreed to give away some 4,450 client names and paid a $780 million settlement after admitting to selling tax-evasion services to Americans.
In January Switzerland’s oldest private bank, Wegelin & Co, said it would close down for good after over 250 years, following its guilty plea to charges of helping prosperous Americans hide more than $1.2 billion from the Internal Revenue Service through secret accounts.
Approximately a hundred Swiss banks will now entertain an open door policy in allowing the USA to have the names of those U.S. citizens that have accounts. Examining each for possible tax evasion. Banks will face fines of up to 50% of the asset value, if they corporate.
This offer does not apply those banks already under investigation. Credit Suisse, HSBC Holdings Plc and Julius Baer Group Ltd to name the top largest banks. Several regional banks that under investigation will not receive this offer as well. The U.S. Department of Justice stated; “"The program is intended to enable every Swiss bank that is not already under criminal investigation to find a path to resolution,"
US Attorney General Eric Holder stated; “This program will significantly enhance the Justice Department's ongoing efforts to aggressively pursue those who attempt to evade the law by hiding their assets outside of the United States," Goes on to say; "In addition to strengthening our partnership with the Swiss government, the program's requirement that Swiss banks provide detailed account information will improve our ability to bring tax dollars back to the US Treasury from across the globe,"
Estimated total account value hidden in Swiss banks is $2.2 Trillion. Closing the Swiss offshore secret tax evader’s haven is a warning to all citizens that use foreign accounts, to evade taxes. They may soon find themselves in this scenario.
Those banks that do not cooperate may take heed to U.S. Attorney General; "significant risks for individuals and banks that continue to fail to cooperate, including for those Swiss banks that facilitated US tax evasion but fail to cooperate now, for all US taxpayers who think that they can continue to hide income and assets in offshore banks, and for those advisors and others who facilitated these crimes."
More than a dozen Swiss banks are under investigation, which includes mortgage backed securities sold by the banks. Credit Suisse has already agreed to a settlement of $120 Million stating the settlement does not imply guilt of selling of risky mortgage backed bonds.
Swiss government has been cooperating with the U.S. since May 2013.The Swiss Bankers association stated that the U.S. deal; "enables all banks in Switzerland to settle their US past quickly and conclusively and creates the necessary legal certainty." Swiss government ordered Julius Baer to hand over, the necessary data on U.S. clients.
Now that will take a pinch from the 1% horded loot of inequality. Raise taxes on the poor little rich boy?? Republicans Nay, Nay, Nay! http://neweconomy.net/content/wealth-inequali... video chart USA wealth Distributions. Now you decide….

David. That is an interesting opinion you have. In fact that opinion in itself sums up the facts as to why people like you on the so called right never win an argument or a battle about anything. You are waiting for everyone one on this earth to become perfect and abide by your opinions. Meanwhile the reason the people on the left have been so successful at infiltrating and destroying this great nation and other parts of the world is because they are not judgmental of others so long as the share the same goals. We live in a country where the VP uses the F word on national television and everyone thinks it funny. We live in a country where the speaker of the house has to use the D word to make a point. You apparently have long ago lost sight of reality if you think the state of Florida and this formerly great nation is going to be saved by a bunch of people that wouldn't say "chet" if they had a mouth full of it. I for one would love to see these all these problems solved in spite of persons like you.
Ya know ya coulda' saved yourself a lot of energy if ya just' said. There is no intellect in pointing out the problem, there is only intellect in fixing it! However it is your right to freedom of speech/expression LOL

What is observed is the fragmentation of the republican party. Essentially the primary issue that is fragmentizing them is their stance on “Inequality For All”.
Globalization is demonstrating itself through out the world. Stimulating communication of the debt of “Inequality” within all national borders. Some to the extent of rebellion and others demanding change.
Republicans fragmentizing of their glass shell is demonstrating their inability to progress efficiently, in the brave new world that is emerging.
Shackled to archaic historical dogmatic Ideoloques. Fostering anger resentment, hatred, deceit, etc, etc,. Greasing the skids for their demise.

Is this going to be the new congress of the USA? Every time debt ceiling issue arises, a party can hold nation hostage until they get what the want without going through our legislations, as out lined in our Constitution.
Importer and Exporters with ships floating off shore dead in the water at Ten’s of thousands cost per day want to know? Think they will take their business to harbors that are more secured in trades. BY, BY USA..

Now republicans are no longer taken at their word. Too much deceit and propaganda to answerer for. Gallup poll has reached new record lows for approval and disproval ratings for the republican party. Both of you do yourselves a favor and put down that Tea addiction and seek the Almighty Truth to forgive you of your trespasses. Remember?
White House:….
“In the early hours of September 15, 2008, five years ago last Sunday, Lehman Brothers announced it would file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Lehman was a giant of the financial system -- the fourth-largest investment bank in the US, a firm that employed thousands of brokers and analysts, with billions in assets that were suddenly worthless -- and its collapse sent shock waves through the global economy.
Suddenly, it was obvious that the next president of the United States would inherit a staggering economic crisis. But the challenge that President Obama was forced to confront didn't just begin in 2008. Even before Lehman Brothers, middle-class security had been slowly eroding for decades as jobs became obsolete or were shipped overseas.
So as we mark this anniversary, we've asked senior staff from across the Obama administration to sit down and talk about the moment when key decisions were made -- the factors they weighed, the results of the actions that President Obama took. What we've put together is a behind-the-scenes look of the decision-making process that you won't find anywhere else.
Check out the story of America's recovery, then share it with your friends.
By the end of 2008, the economy was shrinking by an annual rate of more than 8 percent, our businesses were shedding 800,000 jobs a month, and credit was frozen for families and small businesses. We were in the midst of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. On the day that I first began working in the White House in 2009, the auto industry was on the brink of collapse and the President was wrestling with how to help the millions of families in thousands of communities who would have been devastated if the motor companies died.
That's the lens through which President Obama saw his responsibilities, and it's a consistent theme in all the stories we've collected. Every decision he made was meant to stop the economy from spiraling out of control, put people back to work, and reverse the trends that had buffeted middle class for decades. The task was nothing short of monumental -- to clear away the rubble of the crisis and lay down a new foundation for sustained economic growth in the United States.
There's no diminishing the severity of the challenge we've overcome together, and we’ve got a lot more work to do to rebuild an economy where everyone who works hard has a chance to get ahead. But five years after Lehman Brothers bankruptcy, we want to help everyone get the context and see the full picture.
Take a minute to learn more about where we are five years after the start of the financial crisis:

Both sides are blame. Republics/Democrats < When we chose one or the other, it's a matter of choosing one point of view- one set of beliefs. Single minded ideas are not good for America. People can say they hated Lyndon Johnson but he wasn't there for a popularity contest! Conspiracy theorists even calmed down after awhile. It's about what's good for America.

You really need to stop getting information off the internet. You sound like a Whacko. Internet information downloads are not off limits to people who don't know what the hell they're talking about. The comment about L.B.J. was in agreement that he wasn't popular. People in Florida Don't need to know how screwed they are because of the bush family. You're looking for drama that's all, Except it's making you dizzy.

Welcome to Florida. Republican Governor Rick Scott has once again raised his colors. Obstructing Obamacare and Medicaid all the while allowing urchins of the high financing credit cards to invade and take advantage of our senior citizens health.
An example of how it works; 78 old lady requires a partial denture at a cost of $5,700. Lady is on a fixed income as are the majority of our senior citizens. Unable to come up with the money. Dr. Dan A. Knellinger of Palm Harbor Florida offers our lady a way out.
Immediately takes the information to qualify our lady for a loan of zero percent for 6 months to 18 months.{Sound familiar?} Loan would be paid on time with interest rate of 23% would be affixed to the loan with a penalty interest rate of 33% if one payment is late.
Our lady presently finds herself paying out $214 per month which is 1/3 of her S.S. check! That is to say total S.S. check is $642 divide
By 3 equals $214 leaving our lady with $428.00 to pay rent, utilities and food for the month.!
This high interest credit scam is not contained to dental only. It also has its tentacles in Medicare to cover what Medicare does not cover. Simple primary care procedures are now available through the high financing credit industries as well as the financial ruin of the patient. Now that’s what I call Repubacare.
One of these high flying interest finical credit is recognized as “iCare” out of Atlanta Georgia! Growing at 320% in enrollment per year.
LOL what a play on their avatar.
Court filings through out the nation against these predators of our senior citizens financials and their health are growing. Too late for many of our senior citizens that have been duped into this legalized repubacare insurance scam.
Here in Florida under our infamous Gov. Rick Scott with his prior insurance company record is illuminating why its but a subtle interest to him and the rest of his Repubacare associates… Welcome to Florida… Want to buy something? Have we got a deal for you…

Inability to distinguish one party from another is indicating your biases to all politics. LOL {They All Look The Same To Me}.
The book,“ Bulls Bears and the Ballot Box. By Bob Deitreick and Lew Goldfarb” inspired the following;
Ever wonder which party is the party to attend to.
Promoting Inequality through the Income Gap, as one example, of many.

A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there are more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..
