Republicans were in charge. Weren't they the ones running the country??
And if you're going to blame the minority party for wrecking the economy while Republicans were in charge, WTF should we ever put them in charge again?? They obviously can't lead.
H.R.1461 passed in the House and was again dropped in the Senate because again, the party in charge ... the party responsible for getting that bill on the legislative calendar so it could be voted on by the full Senate ... never let that happen. How the hell is that the fault of the minority party??
Just months after taking over the Congress in early 2007, Barney Frank (they guy you're blaming while he was in the minority party), now with the majority party, introduced and pushed H.R.1427 through the House. That's the guy you're blaming? The one who only two months into gaining controll of the House, passed a bill to increase oversight??
