    7 of the top 10 recipients of insurance company donations are Democrats, including Chuck Schumer, Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, and Blanche Lincoln. In 2008, guess who the second biggest recipient was? Obama, just $100k behind McCain (Hillary was third).

    Except for the fact that the Northeast was crumbling in the 70's, decades before "globalization" stuff.

    What was happening in the Northeast was Democrats. Democrats means taxes and taxes means businesses moving out.

    Perhaps if the Democrats didn't tax businesses to death they wouldn't die or move out.

    That's because the Dems are in charge now. Go back to 2006 and beyond and see what you get. Take a look at campaign donations for Bush and GOP Senators back then. The numbers are flipped.

    yes.

    They're making "more" money than when they don't have a job.

    Funny how that works, isn't it?

    I see it... and that's the problem isn't it? The lobbyists are simply pandering to whomever is in charge and the politicians- no matter the party - takes the money. That has to stop.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I mean, it's incredible how the Liberals saw a mandate from the people to destroy this country.
    This is because Obama is inexperienced as a leader. I believe he was always a follower, and baby-fied. He's kinda like, "I'm doing it my way, or else". He needed to go slow, but instead he went all over the world belittling the US and making all those unnecessary comments. Trying to be buddy-buddy with our enemies. You don't do that with people who want to see you dead.

    Then he started wanting to make the terrorists not terrorists, and calling 9/11 a man-made catastrophe. He's a silly, silly man, really. Not at all worthy of his position. The older, established Democrats should be advising him, but maybe they can't.

    He should have left the banks alone after the first bailout. The auto-makers, no deal, no bailout. So people will lose jobs? They'll have to find other jobs like everybody else that has had this happen. My husband had this happen to him 28 yrs ago and he found another job. It paid a lot less, but had potential. We had to move and leave family. He nows makes way more than he ever did, and has better benefits. Who says we need 3 auto-makers? They should have restructured and merged long ago, and worked towards making the unions less powerful. The unions have ruined our auto-industry, plain and simple. Obama should have flat out told the unions you have to concede on wages and benefits.

    I could go on, but oh my, the time does fly. Obama, I hope, will be the big-one who gets the boot. He's too Socialistic for my tastes. I like owning a nice house, having a couple cars, savings, etc. too much. I want to keep the money I work for. People who are unlucky or don't have the hutspah to take chances, well I'm sorry, but you need to take care of yourself. We can help you, but you have to help yourself at some point if you are able-bodied.

    Yet Democrats are working against them and Republicans to protect them.

    Take a look at energy companies, they are still making money. Are you serious? Or just nuts? And save your "American," wrap myself in the flag bs for the ignorant masses that fall for that ****.
