Are you going to answer my questions or not?
Yes. You are right. Presidents Clinton and Obama will go down as two of the greatest Presidents in the history of the United States of America. We need more like them. Now we need a Congress to help them create even greater successes!

For now, I prefer to debate with you on specific aspect of your post. The "Graham / Leech / Biley" Act was a republican proposal which you know full well. You are also aware the Congress was a fully owned republican majority at the time this legislation was passed. Clinton acknowledged he should have vetoed the bill, but was aware his veto would easily be overturned at the time, and admitted in a 2007 interview he in hindsight should have vetoed it anyway, and allow the ramifications of this bill to be on republicans hands.
You just lost the argument with your own post on who is to blame and reason why is Clinton is the blame because Clinton didnt veto the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act but choose to sign it into law instead and should of left the Republicans in congress override his Veto and then the Republicans would have been responsible for the 2008 financial crisis politically but no Clinton wanted to take credit for enacting the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act under his presidency and is the one who is responsibile for what lead up to and created the 2008 financial crisis that we are still seeing the affects of today.

That is false. It was supported by the Fed and both parties. It happened on Clinton's watch.
Exactly the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act was supported by both parties and the Federal Reserve and it was Alan Greenspan too who said that the markets would regulate themselves and was Alan Greenspan wrong.

Instead of learning from history,ALL 3 branches of Government are doubling down on proven failed policy and somehow expecting different results.

<quoted text>ok. President Bill Clinton is probably the greatest Prsident we have ever had, besides President Obama that is. Too bad Republicans will not pass any legislation to help the American people. Republicans will destroy our country as they hand it over to the 1%. Anyone who vote Republican is either wealthy or dumb as a rock.
That must be why we have so many democrat president's on Mount Rushmore.

I agree it was Clinton's fault wholeheartedly. Also, the Senate version passed only along party lines - only 1 democrat voted for it. The House went in favor of this, yes you and AOI are correct.

It was though, and I'm hopeful you'll be agreeable on this, a republican sponsored bill. This is irrefutable.

You are right. President Obama is the best President EVER!!! People have rated it that way. We are lucky, but we need a Congress to pass his initiatives to help working people. All Republicans want to do is help the rich and corporations!!!

It was bipartisan. If you really want to know what was said read the transcripts of those who testified, especially Greenspan. It's a great laugh

You are correct there that the whole dam system needs to be purged especially of the Embedded Liberalism as it is called which is the problem.

Embedded Liberalism: 1945 - 1970s

Mainstream scholars such as Ruggie tend to see Embedded liberalism as a compromise between the desire to retain as many as possible of the advantages from the previous era's free market system, while also allowing States to have the autonomy to pursue interventionist and welfare based domestic policies. Anticipating the trilemma that would later be formulated as the Impossible trinity, Lord Keynes and White argued that freedom of movement for capital conflicted both with nation state's freedom to pursue economic policies based on their domestic circumstances, and also with the semi fixed exchange rate system that was widely agreed to be important to maximise international trade in goods and services. As such, it was widely agreed that states would be free to enact Capital Controls, which would help them simultaneously maintain both fixed exchange rates and, if desired, expansionary domestic policies. During the 1950s and 60s, embedded liberalism and Keynesian economics were so popular that conservative politicians found they had to largely adopt them if they were to have a chance of getting elected. This was especially the case in Britain and was called the Post-war consensus, with a similar though somewhat less Keynesian consensus existing elsewhere, including in the US.

Marxist scholars tend to broadly agree with the mainstream view, though they emphasise embedded liberalism as a compromise between class interests, rather than between different desirable but partially incompatible objectives. David Harvey argues that at the end of World War II, the primary objective was to develop an economic plan that would not lead to a repeat of the Great Depression during the 1930s. Harvey states:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embedded_liberal...

Embedded Liberalism

Embedded liberalism is a term for the global economic system and the associated international political orientation as it existed from the end of World War II to the 1970s. The system was set up to support a combination of free trade with the freedom for states to enhance their provision of Welfare and to regulate their economies to reduce unemployment. The term was first used by the American political scientist John Ruggie in 1982.

Mainstream scholars generally describe embedded liberalism as involving a compromise between two desirable but partially conflicting objectives. The first objective was to revive free trade. Prior to World War I, international trade formed a large portion of global GDP, but the classical liberal order which supported it had been damaged by war and by the Great Depression of the 1930s. The second objective was to allow national governments the freedom to provide generous welfare programmes and to intervene in their economies to maintain full employment. This second objective was considered to be incompatible with a full return to the free market system as it had existed in the late 19th century - mainly because with a free market in international capital, investors could easily withdraw money from nations that tried to implement interventionist and redistributive policies.
