The ratio of Republicans to Democrats who supported F&F and were on their payroll is miniscule in comparison.<quoted text>
"But you conveniently overlooked the part about "Democrats promoting and protecting Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac". And you conveniently overlooked the part about the "economy taking off after the Bush tax cuts". So, basically, you are wrong."
so let's start with how a Republican Congress somehow let Democrats protect F&F.
and then we can go on to how the Bush tax cuts did nothing for our economy. did plenty for China's economy, but a big failure at home.
It was a Republican Congressional hearing in 2004 that tried to rein in F&F. Every single Democrat was outraged.
An attempt at another tax cut which worked the first time was too late the second time when the house of cards had already collapsed.
