    Re: White House Tax Plan Would Ask More of Millionaires

    Like far too many you buy what the media tells you. Some of the banks didn't want the money and the big ones have paid back the loans with interest. Where are the counter proposals to take money out of SS and Medicare? Raising taxes on the working class? You mean the 65 million working class that don't pay any FIT?
    Are you serious, that bailout was the biggest bank robbery in the country, and nobody went to jail for it.

    You guys always seem to move the bar. The President owns the economy when it's beneficial to your talking point, when it's not it's Congress.

    It was his recession. His and Republican policies destroyed the housing markets and credit markets. Blaming Democrats for the failures of Republicans does nothing to aid your argument.

    Barney Frank sponsored legislation to add oversight to the GSE's and got it passed in the House.

    But seriously, Con, you look pathetic by glossing over all the years Republicans were in charge. By 2007, the damage was done, the housing bubble was already bursting. Too bad for America that Republicans were asleep at the wheel during all those years.

    What doesn't? That they couldn't stop the runaway Republican express train that derailed?

    Stop hiding, Con ... what's the title of that book?

    You're close. Actually, it's blame the nearst Democrat. If the president is Democrat, he gets the blame; if the president is Republican but either chamber of Congress is run by Democrats, then the Congress (only the Democrat Congressmen/women) gets the blame; if the president is Republican and both chambers of the Congress are Republican, then the last Democrat president gets the blame; in extreme cases, Conservatives have been known to blame individual Democrats in Congress even when Democrats are the minority party (like Barney Frank).

    That is the net gain.

    Stop the lies. You've been shown how much of TARP was applied to the deficit and it was far less than $700 billion. And the reason it was less than $700 billion was to account for the TARP funds paid back.

    Why are you so afraid to tell me the title of that book, Conservative? Don't you defend what you post? Or is what you post such BS that you realize it's not worth defending?

    Is that what you learned in school? Why did Obama vote for it if it was robbery? I doubt seriously if you have a clue about what the TARP program was about and how it was distributed and how it was repaid. Of course you buy what you are told.

    Bull****, it is always the President AND Congress, never one without the other. Congress was under control of Democrats from January 2007-January 2011 so whose fault are the results today?

    Of course it was and will be Bush's fault until Obama is fired and he will be. "Your" President makes Jimmy Carter look good.

    I would tell you to research it, but I doubt you would take the time to do that so. If you are interested, watch Capitalism: A True Love Story, you will learn all you ever needed to know about Reagen, the bailout, etc etc.
