    The reality is, Bush isn't in office and the Republicans were fired in 2006 and we are into the 5 year of the Obama Presidency. The economic result today are all Obama's. Why does it matter what I call the Bush term as he isn't around to fix the problems and you helped hire someone who claimed he could. He hasn't and the results show that failure.

    House Financial Services Committee





    For Immediate Release: September 8, 2008


    Frank Statement on Congressional Action Regarding GSE Legislation



    Washington, DC - House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-MA) issued the following statement today in response to accusations from a White House spokesperson that Congress has been reluctant to move forward on GSE legislation for many years:


    “The truth is when President Bush took office, and the Republicans controlled both houses of Congress, he did not make any progress on comprehensive legislation to reform the regulation of the Government Sponsored Enterprises. It was not until 2005, when the House, on a bipartisan basis, and over the President’s objections finally passed a reform bill. It died in the Senate in part because the White House’s failure to make it a priority.


    “In 2006, when the Democrats regained control of Congress, House Democrats made it one of our highest priorities, and passed a bill in May 2007. Finally, a full year later, as the financial crisis worsened, the Senate passed and the President signed GSE reform.


    “It is unfortunate that ideologues in the White House who opposed common sense regulation did not join Congress early enough to help prevent the financial firestorm that now threatens the entire economy.”

    Your facts fall on deaf ears.

    No, I blame the Bush administration. After all, they started with essentially a balanced budget and delivered continuing deficits in excess of a trillion. It was the most pathetic economic performance by any adminstration in US history.

    When the house stops trying to appeal Obama care once a month and gets to serious legislation, then we can take them seriously. Meanwhile, they have treated the Immigration bill with the same distain that you accuse Harry Reid of having for house bills. It seems what's good for the goose....

    . Of course you do, we all know that Bush gave Obama the authority to put Bush spending on steroids and that 6.2 trillion in 4 plus years is much less than 4.9 trillion in 8 years.

    So those bills in Reid's desk are to repeal Obamacare? I cannot imagine how increasing business costs by forcing small businesses to provide healthcare will affect hiring. You really have that figured out well.

    ... substantially all of the $6.2B was the run-out of the deficit infrastructure created by the previous administration. The wars, tax cuts and medicare expansion account for most of the deficits... they were in place before Obama showed up. Its much harder to reverse these things than create them. Yes, now Obama owns the tax cuts, as he advocated for them and they were passed. They account for $2T of our debt and the future cost of those cuts now fall on the Obama ledger.

    Who are you trying to kid here? Other than the gullible. Under the Bush 43 administration the first trillion dollar budget was brought in. And the first trillion dollar increase in the budget was brought in.

    What bills?

    Yes, your opinion noted, problem is facts get in the way of your personal opinion and support for failed leadership in Obama. You really need to get over your BDS. the govt set record tax revenue collection in 2007 with the Bush tax cuts so that dog don't hunt any more. Obama budgets and high unemployment led to the deficits we have today. Obama has never had a deficit less than a trillion

    There were huge losses in Federal Income Tax and Payroll Tax revenues which were caused by the job losses due to the Great Bush recession that added to the deficits.

    Right, the Great Bush Recession that Obama hasn't made any better as evidenced by the data today. You hired Obama to fix the Bush mess so how has that worked out for you?

    By the way since when was Payroll tax designated for use in the General budget and not as intended for SS and Medicare?

    What bills?
    Again, as a liberal you would believe anything, The Bush budget which wasn't passed by Congress had a less than 500 billion projected deficit. TARP was added to it but TARP was a loan and has been mostly paid back. The Obama stimulus, Obama takeover of GM/Chrysler, and the Afghanistan Surge as well as 100 billion supplementals were signed by Obama in 2009.

    Not sure who you think you are talking with but I am not an Obamabot who will believe anything you say.

    As for the bills, I posted the ABC news site so do some research for a change.
