Just another example of just what a total mess eight years of Republican "leadership" did to our once great nation. Obama has done a very good job considering the mess you left. By the way Brad exactly what did Obama do that caused that to happen?
You either have a short memory or selective memory.

Democrats said Fannie & Freddie were doing just fine, remember?

Democrats took control of Congress in 2006 - two years before the housing bubble popped and the economy crashed - and still had control two years after.

Oblamer care is a con mans dream.
The potentials for fraud will be limitless.
The idea is to create so much chaos the only solution will be to go to a single payer system.
So, basically, you want a health care system where the government pays hospitals and doctors directly so you don't have to. Hmmm. Medicare for everyone...just with no age restrictions. Got it.

You "cra cra".
Herbert Hoover had been the president eight months before the stock market crash and the subsequent Great Depression.
Ironically, the Hoover Administration's Reconstruction Finance Corporation - a government agency that provided $2 billion in emergency aid to state and local governments and businesses - was in many respects the forerunner of Obama's stimulus and achieved similar results.
Hoover's was a Republican failure. Obama's, a Democratic failure.
Then, of course, there's Carter's recession. He was a Democrat.
Bush turned the economy around after 9/11 within two years.
The housing market collapse occurred at the end of Bush's presidency. Democrats wanted everyone to buy a home they couldn't afford. Even with two wars, the economy and unemployment were doing fine until then.
It was Obama's job to turn the economic crisis around. But he didn't want a good crisis to go to waste. Enter Obamacare.
Please you Lois, I feel that trying to educate Grey is time that could be well spent elsewhere. You are a very patient woman.

Democrats took control of Congress in 2006 - two years before the housing bubble popped and the economy crashed - and still had control two years after.
In the aftermath of the US Treasury’s decision to seize control of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, critics have hit at lax oversight of the mortgage companies.

The dominant theme has been that Congress let the two government-sponsored enterprises morph into a creature that eventually threatened the US financial system. Mike Oxley will have none of it.

Instead, the Ohio Republican who headed the House financial services committee until his retirement after mid-term elections last year, blames the mess on ideologues within the White House as well as Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the Federal Reserve.

The critics have forgotten that the House passed a GSE reform bill in 2005 that could well have prevented the current crisis, says Mr Oxley, now vice-chairman of
Nasdaq.

He fumes about the criticism of his House colleagues.“All the handwringing and bedwetting is going on without remembering how the House stepped up on this,” he says.“What did we get from the White House? We got a one-finger salute.”

The House bill, the 2005 Federal Housing Finance Reform Act, would have created a stronger regulator with new powers to increase capital at Fannie and Freddie, to limit their portfolios and to deal with the possibility of receivership.

Mr Oxley reached out to Barney Frank, then the ranking Democrat on the committee and now its chairman, to secure support on the other side of the aisle. But after winning bipartisan support in the House, where the bill passed by 331 to 90 votes, the legislation lacked a champion in the Senate and faced hostility from the Bush administration.

Adamant that the only solution to the problems posed by Fannie and Freddie was their privatisation, the White House attacked the bill. Mr Greenspan also weighed in, saying that the House legislation was worse than no bill at all.

“We missed a golden opportunity that would have avoided a lot of the problems we’re facing now, if we hadn’t had such a firm ideological position at the White House and the Treasury and the Fed,” Mr Oxley says.

When Hank Paulson joined the administration as Treasury secretary in 2006 he sent emissaries to Capitol Hill to explore the possibility of reaching a compromise, but to no avail.

Uh oh Dems stalling budget talks in the Senate...
“It’s time for Democrat leaders to take ‘yes’ for an answer,” McConnell said in a statement calling on the Democratic leadership to return to the negotiating table.
McConnell pressed Reid to accept a six-point plan sponsored by Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) to fund the government for six months at an annualized rate of $986 billion, raise the debt limit, make modest reforms to ObamaCare, grant federal agencies more flexibility to manage their budgets and establish a bicameral budget conference.
Republicans say a group of six mostly centrist Democrats helped craft the proposal.

Close but no cigar. All Republicans have to do is take out their "modest reforms to ObamaCare" and we're probably home free. It's time for Republicans to stop playing games and say "yes".

That is what fearmongering will do for you. Pretty soon, you see gloom and doom behind every door and can't tell fiction from fact. I suggest you kill your computer, lock your doors and just sit back and play your video games. You will be much happier.
All humans have fears...

I deal with my fears by applying logic and virtue ethcs...

i guess Obama should learn to ride a bike. or maybe go cut some brush. or have 50 websites devoted to his 'isms'. then he would be really cool.
Nobody is sure why Obama got his first Nobel Prize for.

Hey, they may give him another for learning to ride a bike(really he doesn't already know this) or for his peaceful use of the ax.

In this world, that is a possibility

All the Dems have to do is act responsible and delay the individual mandate for a year, agree to reduce the debt and sit a limit on the debt ceiling.

The first one makes it fair to working families.

Without the last two we will get a hit in credit ratings.
