republicans always think that laws are a burden on the criminals who rip us off.

I've heard that this bill contains language that will force companies/banks that do business with the government to practice affirmative action and hire/promote certain workers or loan money to someone just because of their gender or race. I really hope this isn't the case. Don't we already have enough problems because of putting someone in a position of power without being qualified or loaning them money without having the ability to pay it back.
Yeah thats really gonna make our nation better.

this will do nothing to prevent what caused the "collapse" we are in now. It does however create a bright new shinny federal agency to help "fix" all of our problems.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. The sheeple win again.

Just Obama seizing more power and control through regulation. This will do little to help the economy and in fact will just make it worse.
Thank God Obama is a one term president.

The Democrats are depressed about their collapsing poll numbers, so it's time to start calling conservatives "racist."

Republicans' Never-Failed script:

* Blame Obama/Democrats for everything under Bush/Republicans' era
* Blame Obama/Democrats for not fixing things quick enough
* Blame Obama/Democrats for fixing things too fast
* Label Obama/Demoncrats as extremists no matter what the issue is. Even if Republicans are the extremists (Party of Just Say No).

I say to my fellow Dem, Just Do It!

Change Obama/Dems to Bush/Rep and you get Obama and the Dems script. That is why the only "party" growing is independents. The DNC and RNC are hopefully going the way of the dinosaur. We will all be better off when they do

Just another example of Obama and his gang taking over the private sector. Everything was touched but the main suspects are still intact. Hugo would be proud of Obama.
