by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria......etc., etc., etc.

And House Republicans appropriated & approved that debt also. Remember, Mitt Romney & Paul Ryan were for it before they were against it???

HAHAHHAHAHA!!

In the House, H.R. 1424 passed with the following breakdown of votes:
Democratic 172 Yea; 63 Nay
Republican 91 Yea; 108 Nay
Total - 263 Yea; 171 Nay

In the Senate, H.R. 1424 passed with the following breakdown of votes:
Democratic 41 Yea; 10 Nay
Republican 33 Yea; 15 Nay
Total - 74 Yea; 25 Nay (Sen. Kennedy was in the hospital and did not vote.

Once this measure was passed, the TARP funds were allocated no matter how anyone voted on the stimulus package (which isn't the same piece of legislation), so I'm not sure where everyone seems to be coming up with "no republicans voted for it" unless they just don't understand what you asked. Personally, I thought it was clear, but whatever.

Anyway, all of this information can be retrieved at http://www.house.gov/ and http://www.senate.gov/ along with the results and breakdown including names and parties of every roll call vote that they participate in. It's public info, and it's not hard to find.

Republicans had the presidency, the House, and the Senate from 2001 – 2007.

For six years, Republicans had total and complete and undeniably absolute control over everything.

And how did that work out in the final analysis?

It doesn’t bear repeating. You know the answer to that as well as I do. Six years to screw up the whole country – nay, the entire damned world!

Alright, I expect you to whine.

I must say, all you Romneybots do a good job of sticking your head in the ground like an ostrich when you find out that the reason why our economy is in shambles is due to outright obstructionism by the hands of Republicans.

Mitch McConnell vowed no cooperation with the Obama administration from the get-go
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/08/10/1118...

In November, Senate Republicans, led by McConnell, filibustered the bill preventing it from becoming law. CBS News reported at the time:

Senate Republicans blocked President Obama's $447 billion jobs package on Tuesday, putting the brakes on a bill Mr. Obama has been vigorously promoting over the past month.

Fox viewers were left with the impression that that filibuster never happened.
http://mediamatters.org/blog/2012/06/08/fox-l...

GOP senators block top Obama jobs initiative

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, had warned Democrats before the vote that his party would want to amend the bill -- possibly with hot-button issues like repealing the health care reform law or extending the Bush-era tax cuts for all income levels.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, responded that those amendments were not germane to the bill and he would not allow votes on them.

Senate GOP Blocks Jobs Bill for Vets

The “procedural objection” was hogwash.

What was the real objection? The bill originated in the White House. The Republicans will not support any activity that will give the administration a success story even if it means our returning service people have to go even longer without jobs. Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell has made that crystal clear.
