The evidence is overwhelming and irrefutable. There was no need to filibuster. The threat of a filibuster was enough to keep the bill from ever receiving an up or down vote. Democrats had the 41 votes necessary to keep the bill endlessly in gridlock, so it would have been a waste of time without ANY Democrat support when Democrats would have just kept it endlessly in debate/limbo. It's not my problem your partisanship has blinded you to theses irrefutable facts.

SnipPresident Bush recommended a significant regulatory overhaul of the housing finance industry in 2003, but many Democrats opposed his plan, fearing that tighter regulation could greatly reduce financing for low-income housing, both low- and high-risk. Bush opposed two other acts of legislation: Senate Bill S. 190, the Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act of 2005, which was introduced in the Senate on January 26, 2005, sponsored by Senator Chuck Hagel and co-sponsored by Senators Elizabeth Dole and John Sununu. S. 190 was reported out of the Senate Banking Committee on July 28, 2005, but never voted on by the full Senate.
Discouraged workers are included in U-4 through U-6. The Fed never said anything about including discouraged workers in the paper by Van Zandweghe, which is why you failed to quote anything in regards to that nature.So, if you include those workers which the Fed says (in essence) are technically unemployed - then the unemployment rate should be well over 9%.
I do not have a bias, i simply call it how i see it. You on the other hand have expressed a deep anti-government bias throughout your history on this site. Anything that clashes with your anti-government POV is close minded.Spin and spin and spin...all you do is show your (apparent) closed minded bias.
Me - I have no bias...I think both parties are worse then useless.
It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

Keep that in mind. Establishment DC is the problem. Not right, not left---corrupt politician morons bought and paid for by lobbying and special interest favors to make the social engineering portion of home ownership have risk release valves so they could get the banking and financial industry to do it.
