Compromise.
There would not have been an extension to the tax cut if the tax cut hadn't caused the Bush recession.
And the Bush unemployment.
What?

Many private companies did well with their websites using those private firms, and with less than a tenth of the cost. That's because they did their research on who the most reliable web site firms are. So what it really is is that our government can't even chose a worthy reliable contractor for the job. And money is no object because it's not their money--it's ours.

jFor all Americans the damage from the Economic and Financial melt down will last........ I live in a high density military community. Because of the mortgage meltdown Tens of Thousands of top secret contractors and military officers have loss security clearance..

This isn't an issue that only affect one along the lines of their ethnicity and gender. That's idiotic to assume, or you don't have a clue about the magnitude of what transpired.

Why and what evidence do you have to support that theory that Blacks have higher default rates than the average consumer in America? That's radicalized stigmas with no basis in fact.

Any mortgage that doesn't require 20% of the home value as a down payment is sub prime. What are you talking about exactly?

ROFLMAO.......... you can't be serious and you can't provide any credible link to the source of the information you believe.......... This is just racist rhetoric with nothing to verify any of these distorted conclusions.

What makes your salary more secure than that of another man or woman in the same field? You said you owned rental properties, that's difficult to imagine given you limited knowledge in property financing.

At issue are the largely invisible but profoundly influential three-digit credit scores that help determine who can buy a car, finance a college education or own a home. The scores are based on consumers’ financial history and suffer when they fall behind on their bills.

Blacks more likely to have high-rate mortgages.
For blacks, the picture since the recession has been particularly grim. They disproportionately held subprime mortgages during the housing boom and are facing foreclosure in outsize numbers. That is raising fears among consumer advocates, academics and federal regulators that the credit scores of black Americans have been systematically damaged, haunting their financial futures.
The private companies that calculate credit scores say they do not consider race in their formulas. Lenders also say it is not a factor when deciding who qualifies for a loan; federal laws prohibit the practice. Still, studies have shown a persistent gap between the credit scores of white and black Americans, and many worry that it is only getting wider.

So one would have to ask: were blacks better off before government lured them into home loans they could not afford or are they better off now?

Now just how did Bush send jobs to China and Mexico?
For China extending the favorite trade status to China.......... making it easy for manufacturers to go open shops in China and transport their finished goods back into America.

Why put up a factory in America when China will build a factory install roads and train the workforce to do your work for $.50 an hour.

Allowing foreign manufacturers to take advantage of the same incentives here in the south to build automobile manufacturers at a fraction of the cost of American automobile makers.

The ole one hand washes the other.

For Mexico manufacturers cutting the intrusion at the border for good shipped from manufacturing centers in Mexico to distribution centers in America. At the Ford Plant in Mexico City the hourly rate of an assembly line worker is $4.50 an hour compared to the same workers in Detroit or at other Ford Plants in America.

Republican policies have a history of sacrificing American workers. Bush did nothing different.

Looks like you are copying the portion of the articles that fits your radicalized rhetoric

"The private companies that calculate credit scores say they do not consider race in their formulas. Lenders also say it is not a factor when deciding who qualifies for a loan; federal laws prohibit the practice. "

The culprit is getting mortgages from the Mortgage Firms, not the banks which are regulated by CRA. Private Firms like Countrywide Home Loans which were predators and poacher pushing off terrible loans that paid higher origination fees.

"Chicago resident Ida Mae Whitley, 62, used to have stellar credit.

That was before the African American laid eyes on her dream home in Chicago’s Scottsdale neighborhood, where she and her husband hoped to retire — before she said she was steered into a mortgage with more fees and a higher interest rate, putting her in danger of losing her home."

It’s one more way that credit scoring .&#8201;.&#8201;. sort of sets in stone income and wealth disparities between minorities and whites,” said Chi Chi Wu, a lawyer with the National Consumer Law Center.“The playing field was never level.”

No web site is infallible--not even your banks.
If hacking government web sites is the concern it would only make more sense if Congress began with Social Security.

So with bypassing the Social Security Site, it's evident that the well being of American's information isn't their primary concern.

Who lured whites into buying more house than they could afford......subsequently creating "under water" tantrums. Better understan white boy.....it was you whites that caused the housing meltdown. Check the damn records and you will discover that black mortgage defaults were small compared to the default rates of whites.

According to the federal registry, the DumBama administration expected 90 million Americans to lose the health insurance they wanted to keep--forcing them onto the exchange program or otherwise paying much more for the same coverage they had. That's not "dismantling" the entire system?
Um, sorry, that's bullshit. Stop lying or letting yourself be lied to.

You are another liberal loon, in your mind it is whining to express an opinion? You do not respect the right for folks to express a dissenting opinion? Is it American values to;
- Spend was more dollars on government "programs" the monies brought in?
- Force American's to buy a product they may not want or need, nobamakare?
- Push the abortion/murder agenda because it is an American value to kill innocents?
