Obama The National Disgrace



President Barack Obama wants Congress to make it easier for private debt collectors to call the cellphones of consumers delinquent on student loans and other billions owed the federal government.

Despite the Obama admins claim of getting more revenue from this, the administration has not yet developed an estimate of how much the government would collect, and critics reject the logic behind the recommendation.

"Enabling robo-calls (to cellphones) is just going to lead to more harassment and abuse, and it's not going to help the government collect more money," said Lauren Saunders of the Boston-based National Consumer Law Center.

"People aren't paying their student loans because they can't find a job."

The Obama proposal has aligned the White House with the private debt collection industry (aka failed Lawyers)— frequently the subject of consumer complaints — at a time when the economy is weak, unemployment is high and Obama is embarking on his campaign for re-election.



What a Dumbass.

Democrats in Congress who frequently support the president, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California, declined through aides to say whether they favor or oppose the plan.



Baaaaaaaaa! Baaaaaaaaaaaaaa!


Nor was there any reaction from two other members of the party's leadership in the Senate, Sens. Dick Durbin of Illinois and Chuck Schumer of New York. Both men frequently take the side of consumers in legislative struggles.



Baaaaaaaaa! Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!




Several Sheep aides, speaking on condition of anonymity so they could talk freely, said Democrats do not want to oppose the president but what are sheep to do?



Baaaaaaaaaa! Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

The Education Department accounted for the largest share by far —$28.8 billion referred to 22 private debt collection companies. The firms collected $685 million outright, and another $1.7 billion was recast into agreements that are designed to be paid monthly, according to the report.

Education Department officials did not respond to several requests to speak on the record about the proposal.




HOW MUCH OF THAT LOAN DEBT WAS GIVEN TO ILLEGALS?

A different federal agency, the Federal Trade Commission, collects extensive records about the private debt collection industry in general.

"The FTC receives more complaints about the debt collection industry than any other specific industry," according to an annual report to Congress, more than 100,000 in 2010.

The complaints fall into several categories, citing alleged harassment, demands for impermissibly large payments, failure to provide required consumer notice and threatening dire consequences such as jail time.




In other words: THEY LIE LIKE OBAMA!


No wonder he likes them, or could it be the campaign Cash their Lobbyists gave him?

Just goes to prove again that the Obama administration works for the bankers. Don't pay your debt to the bankers, well, then lobbyist will push the government to make laws that ensure they get their money.

Go to jail for drugs or murder, get out early for good behavior. Don't pay the bankers, go away for life.

Pathetic does not even begin to define this lunatic and his communist manifesto. This lunatic is way out of control and people had better wake up fast before the whole damn country collapses. If he wants to collect on tax dodgers and scum then start in NYC with these drugged morons who were sent out by Moore and Soros. When admitted communist no longer want to be associated with this clown that speaks volumes.

Anyone who uses as many screen names as you do and post nothing but lies needs to be put in a straight jacket and locked up.

Oh dear fcuking God! You not only LIE about being a Marine. But clearly right here on Topix, evident to all, you LIE about this. ROFLMAO! Can't make this shit up people. Need more evidence what a blatant LIAR 'I Wish I Were a Marine Corp Patricia' is.

Still haven't changed your moniker Patty. Are there people dumb enough to believe your bullshit LIE that you were a Marine? ROFLMAO!!!

To those new to Patty, and her fairytale of being a Marine, look at the spelling. NO MARINE IN THE WORLD SPELLS CORPS WRONG. NONE! Proof alone Patty never was, never will be, a Marine. A fcuking disgrace and disrespect to EVERY MARINE THE WORLD OVER!

Is that how you show your patriotism Patty? By disgracing and disrespecting Marines? Need more proof how ANTI-American you truly are?

For once, you are left "speechless"....LOL

For once, you cannot twist and defend Obama-speak to make it appear that he actually is doing the right thing, so you appear on this thread and instead make LL the subject of your rant....LOL

It doesn't get any better than this. Perhaps even you can see how out of touch Obama is, but I know you won't admit it. Ever. Which is why you feel the need to point of LL's posting habits instead. Good diversion, when you have absolutely no defense of Obama....LOL

At least he was right and didn't compare you to Hitler the way you compared Cain to Hitler.

Habits?

A habit would be him using a particular word in his comments whenever he post… posting 7 comments in a row like this is an obsession, a sickness, or a mental condition.
No one else inconsiderately post so many comments in a row because most rational people express a thought and realize that these boards are not here as their exclusive toilet to put crap on.

That would be almost as rediculaus as Republicans getting upset because someone has to repay their loan.
