Bush's fault--yeah right!
Yes, of course it was Bush's fault you moron. Why are you such an idiot? Why do you post such ignorant and foolish garbage? Don't you read for yourself?

"Community Reinvestment Act had nothing to do with subprime crisis

The Community Reinvestment Act, passed in 1977, requires banks to lend in the low-income neighborhoods where they take deposits. Just the idea that a lending crisis created from 2004 to 2007 was caused by a 1977 law is silly. But itís even more ridiculous when you consider that most subprime loans were made by firms that arenít subject to the CRA.

... The CRA was at its strongest in the 1990s, under the Clinton administration, a period when subprime loans performed quite well. It was only after the Bush administration cut back on CRA enforcement that problems arose, a timing issue which should stop those blaming the law dead in their tracks.

...Better targets for blame in government circles might be the 2000 law which ensured that credit default swaps would remain unregulated, the SECís puzzling 2004 decision to allow the largest brokerage firms to borrow upwards of 30 times their capital and that same agencyís failure to oversee those brokerage firms in subsequent years as many gorged on subprime debt."

No, the $5 TRILLION is what Bishoprick Romney wants to add to the deficit.
Instead of paying off the National Debt in 2010, Bush left Obama the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression. Since you are hell bent on lying about Obama, let's recall the truth.
Bush left Obama:
- 850,000/month in job losses
- negative 8% GDP
- TARP
- failing auto industry
- cratering stock market
- two wars and utter lack of concern about OBL or terrorism in general
Obama:
- ended Bush's recession in 6 months
- passed the first significant health care reform in generations
- killed OBL
- pulled forces from Iraq and is winding down Afghanistan
- created jobs for 28 months
- saved GM and its jobs

Twist and spin all you want troll, Obummer has spent over 5 trillion dollars in under 3 1/2 years. His "spend our way to prosperity" philosophy sucks!.

Try spending your way to prosperity out here in the real world and see what happens.

"whatthefuckhasobamadones ofar" Not one single worthwhile thing.

Over 12,000 comments on this thread. I guess I will add to it. I lost 80% of my savings because of Barney "the liberal moron"Frank. We just retired just before the housing market crashed and caused the meltdown. It was liberal bullshit trying to give every liberal dipshit a house who couldn't' pay for it. Now after hard all my life and taking nothing from the gov., I'm broke. Thank you liberal retards. Don't count on me or the vast majority of Americans to vote for Obummer. Don't throw the polls at me-we are.
messing with the polls. Just like you stupid libs messed with our money.

When does your home become part of your health care? After 2012!

Your vote counts big time in 2012, make sure you and all your friends and family know about this!

HOME SALES TAX

I thought you might find this interesting.

The National Association of Realtors is all over this and working to get it repealed,-- before it takes effect. But, I am very pleased we aren't the only ones who know about this ploy to steal billions from unsuspecting homeowners. How many realtors do you think will vote Democratic in 2012?

Did you know that if you sell your house after 2012 you will pay a 3.8% sales tax on it? That's $3,800 on a $100,000 home, etc. When did this happen? It's in the health care bill,-- and it goes into effect in 2013. Why 2013? Could it be so that it doesnít come to light until after the 2012 elections? So, this is Ďchange you can believe iní?

Under the new health care bill all real estate transactions will be subject to a 3.8% sales tax.

If you sell a $400,000 home, there will be a $15,200 tax. This bill is set to screw the retiring generation,-- who often downsize their homes. Does this make your November, 2012 vote more important?

Oh, you weren't aware that this was in the ObamaCare bill? Guess what; you aren't alone! There are more than a few members of Congress that weren't aware of it either.

there are issues in Texas that Rick Perry is familiar with and can resolve: Such as fighting corruption within the courts and innocent people wrongly sent to death row on no evidence and even having DNA clearing them.

Great Job, Perry.
Or...how about nearly 30% of Texans have NO health insurance, or that it is a low wage/low income state (other than oil), or...when the wildfires were raging, he went off to head a prayer group in Reliant Stadium in Houston???

How many of those uninsured are illegals who dont qualify for insurance anyways? How many of those "low wage/low income" jobs are, again, held by illegals who generally make very little?
Liberals love to bash Texas's record on health care, education, wages, etc and ignore the underlying contributors to those "problems". Libs never let the facts get in the way of a good tagline.
Texas has far more well paying jobs other than the oil industry. That just proves you dont know what you are talking about. I guess if we adopted more liberal policies like that socialist mecca California we would be so much better off right? How big is Californias deficit and debt again? How much do the owe in IOU's because they cant pay their bills? How much does Texas owe?

Oh c'mon Defiant, that cant be true. We all know that Bush caused every single bad thing in the last 200 years. Just ask any Liberal, they will be happy to explain all of his dasterdly deeds, from personally melting the polar ice caps, wiping out over 200 speies of garden snails, crashing the economy, causing peaceful muslims all around the world to hate us, etc. Heck, I bet he was flying the plane that dropped the first bomb on Pearl Harbor and fired the torpedo that sank the Lusitainia. That evil bastard gets around in the time machine he and Cheney built to spread their evil all over.

All Obamacare did was shift the burden down the road with direct Federal taxes (your example)and raised local taxes when states have to fund the Obamacare mandates and the federal "seed money" ends. Why were some states representative's votes bought (Nebraska comes to mind) by providing federal funds to cover cost while other states were not. Stinks from the head up.

Great shell game play by DC. Let's get out of our promisses to folks by shifting the finacial burden to them through their states so we do not take the blame. The Feds cannot even run Medicare, Medicade and the VA medical right(alot of fraud and problems) and now they will run it all. Medical care in another country is looking better all the time.

Medical devices also get taxes (joint replacements for example). Does anyone really beliveve that cost will not be passed on.

Problem - Health cost is too high

DC fix - Make the states pay for it instead of us.

Why this fix - The healthcare industry and insurance industry want to not just maintain their very high profits. They want millions more insured (regardless of who pays that bill) to make even more moeny. Fairly sure ACA was written by health industry and insurance lobbiest to protect and expand their interest and handed to the congress. After all Nancy P said "now that we have passed it we need to read it".

Defiant1 = defiantly a Moonie

ObamaCare = RomneyCare = ObamneyCare which Defiant1 will support

If more people go to the exchanges which are, of course, MARKETPLACES FOR CAPITALIST COMPETITION FOR CUSTOMERS, we will get more transparency, efficiency and choices if the marketplace for health insurance actually exists.

The EXCHANGES are similar to the stock markets or commodity markets in that government regulations create an infrastructure where companies ply their trade. If they are unable to do so in an efficient, effective manner then we can do what other industrialized countries do have a nationalized healthcare system either fully public or partially public.

What an idea, a workable, efficient, effective health care system that covers all human beings without bankrupting families. Horrors

Colorado Springs, very rightwing yelled FIRE! HELP! to the federal government.

There are NO libertarians in disaster areas.

What Defiant1 and his idiotic ilk want is to pay nothing and have the rest of us pay everything. They are the very definition of leeches.

They want to keep 100% of their paycheck and, yet, like their Messiahs Ayn Rand and Ron Paul they will demand Social Security and Medicare.

LIAR.

The housing market was a bubble you liar. The housing market bubble then burst you liar.

As with all bubbles the values are not real you liar. You are just another example of the 100% of the Republiscum Party that are liars.

It is no surprise that pathological liar Bishoprick Romney is your candidate. His entire campaign is built on lies about Obama. He lies about Bain, he lies about Massachusetts, he lies about his record, he lies about everything.

Republiscum = Liars. The party of liars nominating a liar.
