That is why Clinton had a veto. Most bills will not ever get to the pres. if there is a chance of a veto. The fact is, that Clinton actually triangulated/brokered the deal....he actually lobbied FOR the bill.<quoted text>
It's so stupid of you to continue this argument about the repeal of Glass-Steagall.
The dem Clinton signed this bill-- which was brought to him by repub congressmen. It had little dem support in congress. It was a repub bill. The repubs owned the congress at the time and they threatened to override his veto.
Still, I'll give mutual blame to both-- the repubs and to the dem, Clinton.
But you can't do that. You want to blame only Clinton, conveniently ignoring the fact that a president can't sign a bill unless ist's presented to him.
Clinton was (singularly) the one and only individual who had the power to stop that bill.......but he didn't, and the worlds's economy was brought to its knees.
So you can go ahead and blame other individuals who might have stepped up to the plate, but the facts are killing you, aren't they? None of them had the power of the veto.
Clinton (the most powerful man in the world at the time) screwed the pooch and signed the bill into law.
Deal with it.
I feel NO obligation to address all of your points, as they are mostly off topic, obtuse and wander away from the subject matter..... just like this one did. If you want honest conversation, stop inserting ideological cheap shots into your rants and stay on topic.
You are becoming a legend in your own mind.
To new readers;
The poster named “Tea Party Solution” is not a member of the tea party. He has been proven to be a liar and a coward who will spin information to fit his true ideology…..a radical left wing progressive.
Anyone reading his posts should check and verify any of his so called facts. The fact that he uses the term “tea party” in his name exemplifies his patently dishonest nature and his disingenuous persona.
Readers beware of any information provided by the poster “Tea Party Solution”.
