Utter fiction.
Clinton repealed glass-steagall.
It was Republican sponsored legislation DUMBSHIT.

The Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (GLB), also known as the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999,(Pub.L. 106–102, 113 Stat. 1338, enacted November 12, 1999) is an act of the 106th United States Congress (1999–2001).

It repealed part of the Glass–Steagall Act of 1933, removing barriers in the market among banking companies, securities companies and insurance companies that prohibited any one institution from acting as any combination of an investment bank, a commercial bank, and an insurance company. With the passage of the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act, commercial banks, investment banks, securities firms, and insurance companies were allowed to consolidate.

The banking industry had been seeking the repeal of the 1933 Glass–Steagall Act since the 1980s, if not earlier.

In 1987 the Congressional Research Service prepared a report that explored the cases for and against preserving the Glass–Steagall act.

Respective versions of the legislation were introduced in the U.S. Senate by Phil Gramm (Republican of Texas) and in the U.S. House of Representatives by Jim Leach (R-Iowa). The third lawmaker associated with the bill was Rep. Thomas J. Bliley, Jr.(R-Virginia), Chairman of the House Commerce Committee from 1995 to 2001.

All REPUBLICANS.

On November 4, the final bill resolving the differences was passed by the Senate 90–8, and by the House 362–57.

Congress majority: Republican

House majority: Republican

The legislation was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on November 12, 1999.

VETO-PROOF.

Poor teabagger.

Not going to happen. Even the GOPsaaurs know that once millions of people start participating in the ACA, there is NO chance they will be able to repeal it, even if they control 100% of the House & Senate & the White House too.
That's why they are SO DESPERATE to stop it.
But it's too late. They just haven't realized it.

Is we can't afford it! It isn't turning out the way it was sold to the public AND the public doesn't like it, never did or it would had passed on a bipartisan basis but it didn't! Hopefully with all the buzz about it costing more then projected, premiums going up and promises made but not kept that will be enough to repeal,delay or start over. Again wait and see!

Asking for facts, arguments and evidence from a Teabagger is like trying to get a dog to do calculus. It's not going to happen. All you are going to get is dog sshhitt.

I see you backed down on the anti-christ statement. C'mon Mr Goebbels you said our president was the anti-christ defend your nonsense.
As for the "clinging to guns and god"...as usual you morons only remember the sound bite. You even somehow think he said it in Chicago. It happened at a fundraiser in California. Obama was asked why working class rural whites constantly vote conservative even when it is not in their best interest. For example buying into the tax cuts for the rich which shifted more of the burden of supporting the government onto the middle class and working poor. Clinging to god and guns was merely a reference to conservative core values that often override economic concerns. Of course the wingnut panties all went into a bunch. You guys are bankrupt when it comes to ideas, but your side always has an abundance of outrage.
The definition of anti-Christ is anyone who denies Him and denounces Him. That would be Odumbo.

have you noticed that since Obama made his move from prez to dictator, that topix has absolutely been taken over by his minions....and they are rough trade too, talking smack to women and the elderly. Between Mykro, Barefeet and whatever name Harvey is using today, its downright embarrassing to read their hate filled tripe.

Indeed, conservative crapola is one of the greatest offenders. Mykro is just downright offensive and bareass is simply juvenile in it's retorts. When faced with facts, facts supported by the liberal leaning media, they resort to obscenities and belittling to get you to leave. Fortunately, I don't fall for their school yard tactics.

I'll add CC to the list....the list is getting bigger, seems the more Obama screws up, the more vocal they have to be to defend him. I suspect many of them are working on the plan to get reparations for that 400 years of oppression that Obama promised to take care of. A few may just be pony tailed ex hippies, who daydream of the good old days, when they were burning their draft cards. They proudly wear their Obama bumper sticker on their hybrid.
