    Re: GOP senators block financial reform

    The irony is that Goldman, Lehman, Fannie, Freddie, etc, have DEEP ties to the Democratic party. This is just a smoke screen to paint Republicans into a corner...and it's not working.

    This is no different. Obama thought he could shame the republicans to support his version of financial reform. It failed.

    Once again Obama displays the lie of working with the other side for all to see.
    You're making up your own facts again.

    The polls show people support financial reform 2 to 1 - and majorities support Obama's version of it.

    About two-thirds of Americans support stricter regulations on the way banks and other financial institutions conduct their business, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

    Majorities also back two main components of legislation congressional Democrats plan to bring to a vote in the Senate this week: greater federal oversight of consumer loans and a company-paid fund that would cover the costs of dismantling failed firms that put the broader economy at risk.
    ...
    But compared with congressional Republicans, Obama has a clear advantage. A slim majority - 52 percent - of all Americans says they trust Obama over the GOP on the issue, while 35 percent favor the Republicans in Congress. Independents prefer Obama 47 to 35 percent, with 16 percent trusting neither side on the issue.

    Ah, yes, that explains why the Democrats are coming down harder on financial firms. All those deep ties.

    Why Goldman? Why not Lehman? Why not Fannie or Freddie? Why not Bear Stearns or Merrill Lynch?

    This is orchestrated. If you sacrifice your own, you can CONTROL THE MESSAGE in the process.

    This is nothing but posturing.

    It's almost cultish how they never question anything Mother does. She's been taxing them (middle class Republicans) for years and yet they turn a blind eye. Then a Democrat gives them a tax break and he's the devil incarnate.

    Truly fascinating the willful ignorance.

    Of course without evidence and those pesky links, your post is really just a waste of space.

    So what in your emmenently qualified(lol) financial experience leads you to believe this isn't another turd like the health debacle. I'll give you a hint, this bill sucks too.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Actually you are the one making facts up. That poll only asks if you want stricter financial control NOT specifically Obama's plan.

    Try again.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
