Freddie Mae -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- I see the heads who are here; I want to thank you all for coming --(laughter)-- have committed to provide more money for lenders. They've committed to help meet the shortage of capital available for minority home buyers.
Franklin told me at the meeting where we kicked this off, he said, I promise you we will help, and he has, like many others in this room have done.

Not necessarily. People receiving medicaid today likely worked at some point & paid taxes at the state or federal level. For example the Bush recession drove many who had been paying taxes into medicaid. Many of the children on medicaid have working parents.
Many on Medicare never paid a dime into the program making your statement grossly uninformed.
Medicare is a medical care program for people 65 or older funded through taxes.
Medicaid is a medical care program for poorer people funded through taxes.
Galt & Eed - both moochers - suckling off the government teat.
"real dumb"
You prove your ignorance with every post you make.
- First you say, "Medicare is a medical care program for people 65 or older funded through taxes"
- Second you call folks who worked, in my case more than 50 years, and paid those taxes moochers.
That is a flat azz contradiction. Coming from you not a surprize. Your every post is a contradiction.

This liberal moron has caused more harm to America and our economy than any person to occupy the oval office.

wait till you see the inflation coming to America soon caused by printing borrowing too much money over spending by his administration.

<quoted text>Time's list of those responsible. Bill Clinton was #1 on the list.

President Clinton's tenure was characterized by economic prosperity and financial deregulation which in many ways set the stage for the excesses of recent years. Among his biggest strokes of free-wheeling capitalism was the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act which repealed the Glass-Steagall Act, a cornerstone of Depression-era regulation. He also signed the Commodity Futures Modernization Act which exempted credit-default swaps from regulation. In 1995 CLINTON LOOSENED HOUSING RULES BY REWRITING THE COMMUNITY REINVESTMENT ACT WHICH PUT ADDED PRESSURE ON BANKS TO LEND IN LOW-INCOME NEIGHBORHOODS. It is the subject of heated political and scholarly debate whether any of these moves are to blame for our troubles, but they certainly PLAYED A ROLE IN CREATING A PERMISSIVE LENDING ENVIRONMENT.

By the way, Abraham Lincoln was quoting a passage in Proverbs.
Such bs. Banks were making loans b/c they were making tons of cash on closing costs and interest payments. The riskier the loan, the higher interest rate they earned.

Bad mortgage loans for overpriced homes were flowing like water because Democrats were convinced Fannie and Freddie needed no government oversight long before the crisis and many of them were on the payroll.

Why is the reaction to the shootings at the Washington Navy Yard just a tiny fraction of the reaction to the shootings at Sandy Hook?

<quoted text>Only a few of those pictures portrayed the hearings with the two Benghazi victims' parents.

One of them showed Republicans standing around before taking their seats.

The Congressional panel consisted only of those members on the Committee of Oversight and Government Reform.

All but two democrats walked out according to many and various sources.

I'm still waiting for someone to show me a source where one republican walked out.

But that's what you get for believing mediamatters.com . But you're more concerned about Fox giving both sides of any story.
And how many US servicemen died in Iraq so the cronies of Bush/Cheney would reap billions in no bid government contracts? 5000, 6000. Of course, that doesn't count the nearly 100k civilians who died and the billions squandered in their War for Profit

Four dead in shootings as Chicago gun-death toll rises
Full story: Reuters
A new spate of gun violence in Chicago left four men dead, Chicago police said on Saturday, less than two days after a shooting spree at a park in the city wounded 13 people, including a 3-year-boy.
Chicago needs cops who are willing to get off their butts and do the job for which they are grossly overpaid.

Whether one wants to blame politics or mortgage bankers, there would not have been any housing bubble and subsequent collapse were it not for irresponsible buyers who "purchased" houses far beyond their financial ability.
The buyers should bear most of the blame for their circumstances.
It's more of those mortgage companies, realtors AND bankers who should hold the blame son.

THEY are the most responsible.

The problem is we have a self-absorbed leader who thinks he's supposed to be the winner in some kind of political game.

The winner is supposed to be the country and the people he serves.

And both sides are supposed to work together to be on the same team. A real leader makes that happen.

Obama always thinks it's his way or Republicans are responsible.
