    Only if you don't care about the debt -- which Republicans apparently don't.

    Oh, I see, working people don't pay taxes and the economy then isn't growing? How would your behavior change if they raised your taxes?

    A huge bipartisan mistake. Note that both the House and Senate bills were authored by Republicans. "Senator Phil Gramm (R-TX), the Chair of the Senate Banking Committee, was quoted as insisting that any bill brought to the Senate Floor would need to be expanded to include prohibitions on SEC regulation of the swaps market." Brilliant.

    Did you reply to the wrong post? Because your reply has no relation to what I wrote.

    Regardless of who authored the bills, the vote was 90-8-2 in the Senate

    Nice diversion, economy is improving and what legislation has Obama signed that led to this improving economy. Did he raise taxes? Did he remove subsidies on those evil businesses? What exactly did he do to lead to job growth and what you claim is an improving economy?

    That mistake is why the economy is the way it is now. Yes? No?

    Isn't that the policy which Bush took credit for along with Rupublicans? Why yes, yes it is...

    Thanks to our policies, home ownership in America is at an all-time high!" - George Bush, 2004 RNC convention.

    So yes, Clinton did sign it, for which he does receive his share of the blame; but make no mistake, this was Conservative policy.
