Yes and these guy's think it's ok for McConnell to pout and say were not working while he is in office were just going to try to get him out.

In the face of the worse economic collapse, failing banks, homes being foreclosed on and workers losing their jobs the Republicans said fu@k you we aren't going to do shit for four years. LOLOL!!! And they get big hurrah's from these idiots.

It sounds more on the current Administration. Remember, during the debate, Romney claimed that the Obama Care was approved by Obama, Reid and Pelosi without a single republican? What do you call that? Fascism?

Look I know what your getting at. Right wing news and morons on here spouting off Obama issued more Executive Orders than any President in history. It's a total lie. Since FDR he comes in 8th place. Even George Bush issued way over twice as many as Obama.

Jon Stewart, Bill O’Reilly rumble, and zingers fly

Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images - The pair debated Saturday in front of a boisterous audience at the George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium.
By Dan Zak, Published: October 6

Zingers flew and egos crackled Saturday night as Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly and “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart debated in front of a boisterous audience at the George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium. The two television personalities, at ideological odds, found common ground by brandishing their wit and revving their symbiotic sideshow act, branded this time around as “The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium.”

“How many people think it’s Bush’s fault?” O’Reilly said in his opening statement, referring to the country’s myriad problems.“Bush. Is. Gone,” he replied as people applauded their assent.

“My friend Bill O’Reilly is completely full of s---,” Stewart said in his opening statement.

The debate cantered playfully from there for 90 minutes.
Stewart:“I believe in Social Security. Do you?”
O’Reilly:“Yes.”Stewart:“Then we’re both socialists.”

The pair steamrolled moderator and CNN contributor E.D. Hill, who knew better than to get in the way of either showman. The men — both dressed in charcoal suit jackets and both with books to sell and profiles to maintain — stood at rostrums underneath a digital rendering of a bald eagle clutching a banner that said “Yum, this banner tastes like freedom.” Stewart occasionally employed an electric platform that raised him to O’Reilly’s height.

Sparring topics included the national debt (the pair got bogged down sorting out the difference between the debt and the deficit), the war on Christmas (“We won,” O’Reilly said, to Stewart’s bafflement), health care (O’Reilly wants private insurance companies to run the show; Stewart wants to decouple insurance and employment) and Middle East policy.

“He’s done a good job on terrorism,” O’Reilly said of Obama, but both he and Stewart agreed that the president mishandled the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

“Give me back the $800 billion for the Iraq war .&#8201;.&#8201;. and it’s rubbers for everyone on me,” Stewart said when discussing economic redistribution.

Stewart routinely redirected the conversation back to his view that President Obama is being judged by a different standard than his predecessors and that the country is distracted by warped conversations about capitalism versus socialism and democracy versus tyranny. O’Reilly routinely dismissed Stewart’s earnest theses with a scoff or a one-liner.

“‘I’m entitled to my birth control paid for by the taxpayer?’ That’s insane,” O’Reilly said to enthusiastic applause.

Stewart:“We have already decided as a society to take care of people who need help..&#8201;.&#8201;. You’re suggesting Barack Obama came into office and everyone said,‘Lordy, I don’t have to work anymore!’&#8201;”

Let me make your head explode with real economics taught in all colleges and is a fact. Wealth does not come from the top down "trickle down economics" but from the bottom up. How else are profits made if the bottom "you and me" don't buy anything.

Know how? As Ford himself said "if people knew how banks really operate there would be a revolution". Here is why. Banks actually create money and I mean out of thin air not real money. They then loan that money to other institutions which then go to factories and other things that make goods and services.

Now since that was fake money they produced there will be inflation attached to it but only after it goes out. By the time it gets to the bottom "you and me" and we buy. Between inflation, interest from the banks that money filtered through that money goes back to the top with a good profit.

It's like buying low and selling high except what they sold was created out of thin air, no cost to them.

How can banks do such a thing? Like create their own money without going to prison? You and I most certainly would but the banks got lobbyist to buy politicians to make laws saying they could.

lol, why not apply to be the financial adviser of Pres. Obama and don't think too hard or else your brain will explode???

I don't even want to "analyze" how the billions of injected subsidies to the big bank created out of thin air and evaporated the small banks in rural areas forcing hundreds to close!

Just wonder with a college education why Obama just could never seem to locate the ignition switch of that plane after reading the pilots handbook of instructions? Seems to be a trend... no comprehension skills.

Remember, Presidents has the authority to sign "executive orders" bypassing Congress. Perhaps some of the bills of Obama were not approved by a majority of Republicans and minority of Democrats...

The Dodd-Frank Bill you have been hearing about and even Romney brought up during the debates? Well that is a reform act for the banks and Wall Street to stop them from doing that crazy stuff I just posted.

Romney said he would repeal it!!!!!! Get rid of it, go back to the corrupt system that caused the 2008 collapse. Now why in the hell would anyone want that. Romney is protecting the banks illegal, immoral and devastating practices, they own him period.

There is no and I mean no reason to repeal Dodd-Frank unless your in the pocket of the big Banks.

Federal Government Take Steps to Boost Economy Starting Today

Posted by ADMIN on September 14, 2012 at 11:30am

New York, NY (TDB Economic /Financial News)- Starting today, the sputtering economy will get a much need and long awaited jolt. Prompted by months after months of disappointing economic statistics and a weak 2012 economic growth forecast of only 1.7% to 2% the Federal Government is now taking drastic steps they hope will speed up the economic recovery process.

Speaking at a news conference yesterday (September 13), Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke announced the government's intent to buy more debt as part of a plan aimed at boosting economic growth. The plan involves purchasing $40 billion a month in mortgage-backed securities through a very unpopular and controversial process known as Quantitative Easing - the buying of financial assets from commercial banks and other private institutions with newly created money, in order to inject a pre-determined quantity of money into the economy. As mentioned previously, efforts to stimulate the economy will begin today with the Fed purchasing $23 billion of mortgage-backed securities for the remaining portion of September. It is expected that the purchases will ease the pressure on long-term interest rates which will in turn give support to the housing and larger mortgage market as a whole. In addition to the purchases, indications are pointing towards the Fed keeping short-term interest rates at very low levels until the middle of 2015. To further boost the effectiveness of the planned economic recovery strategy there will be a continuation of the ongoing policy known as Operation Twist - selling some of the short term debt (with three years or less to maturity) purchased as part of the quantitative easing policy back into the market and using the money received from this to buy longer term government debt. The two programs combined will bring the total monthly purchasing of long-term bonds to $85 billion."

So will it help the poor?? Let's wait and see after election...

continuation..

"The Committee will closely monitor incoming information on economic and financial developments in coming months. If the outlook for the labor market does not improve substantially, the Committee will continue its purchases of agency mortgage-backed securities, undertake additional asset purchases, and employ its other policy tools as appropriate until such improvement is achieved in a context of price stability. In determining the size, pace, and composition of its asset purchases, the Committee will, as always, take appropriate account of the likely efficacy and costs of such purchases.

To support continued progress toward maximum employment and price stability, the Committee expects that a highly accommodative stance of monetary policy will remain appropriate for a considerable time after the economic recovery strengthens. In particular, the Committee also decided today to keep the target range for the federal funds rate at 0 to 1/4 percent and currently anticipates that exceptionally low levels for the federal funds rate are likely to be warranted at least through mid-2015.

Voting for the FOMC monetary policy action were: Ben S. Bernanke, Chairman; William C. Dudley, Vice Chairman; Elizabeth A. Duke; Dennis P. Lockhart; Sandra Pianalto; Jerome H. Powell; Sarah Bloom Raskin; Jeremy C. Stein; Daniel K. Tarullo; John C. Williams; and Janet L. Yellen. Voting against the action was Jeffrey M. Lacker, who opposed additional asset purchases and preferred to omit the description of the time period over which exceptionally low levels for the federal funds rate are likely to be warranted."

inspite of this, gas is rising rising up up to the sky!

Wrong sweetie. Under Republican George Bush the government grew more than anytime since the Lyndon Johnson. Obama much smaller. To be fair though Bush created the Department Of Homeland Security, Patriot Act and numerous other agencies.
