    Yea, I corrected that in the other thread. Boehner got 2 Tea Partiers to defect, and the bill passed 214-212.

    I didn't ignore it. I JUST explained it to you. This is about Section 716 Dodd-Frank, also known as Prohibition Against Government Bailouts of Swap Entities, or the 'Swap-Pushout Rule' as you referred it to. And I also went into great detail explaining some of the finer aspects of the provision here (not that it is very complex or long).

    So here you tell me I was played by Sen. Warren and it isn't difficult to understand why.
    As you directly insult me by calling me a low-information voter.

    Is this your normal way of posting ??
    It's only an insult if you find it insulting, but most people generally don't know this. And somehow you didn't understand that the provision being repealed with this spending bill was Section 716 of Dodd Frank, so I'll leave you to decide how informed you are.

    But yes, people fooled by this fiasco are generally low information voters, and its probably not their fault. Most people don't pay attention to finance, regulation, or financial regulation. It's not uncommon for politicians to bank on the ignorance of the voter, as we've learned from Gruber... Whether or not the bill passes or fails, Warren can vote against funding the government while claiming that she is once again the champion of the average American, while this meaningless provision would have of Dodd Frank would have done absolutely nothing to prevent future crisis, or bailouts. Most of all, no one will never remember how meaningless this provision is years from now. But that is politics for you.

    Lol .....

    Not this Stock market.

    I advise you to educate yourself a little more about the Feds Quantitative easing and its influence on the Equities markets.

    The FED drives down yields on Bonds to the point where it pushes investors out of safe fixed yields investments and into the Equities and Commodities markets.

    The Stock market has never been more disconnected from the economy than it is now.

    Other than she is a socialist. How about the "you didn't build that" mentality?

    Obama was 100% correct when he said that, just FYI. He was talking about the infrastructure that allows businesses to thrive.

    From my link:
    The House approved the measure late Thursday by 219-206.

    He was justifying taking more and more for the private sector.

    Actually, that's probably one of the ridiculous things that Obama and Warren has ever said. They assume that the income for investment roads and bridges is derived from the income taken from the public businesses don't contribute to that. This is false.

    People tend to say dumb things to rally to the extreme base. Even Hillary Clinton has done this recently.
