    Having the power of the purse gives Congress more control over the legislation where money is involved. As for hypocrisy seems to make that claim about me most of the time. Too bad you don't pay closer attention to ALL my posts. Tell me where the hypocrisy is when the Congress and the WH are controlled by the same party and in overwhelming numbers.

    The hypocrisy is when you blame Congress for economic problems when a Republican is President and the President for economic problems when a Democrat is President. I pay attention to your posts. Just because I rarely comment doesn't mean I don't read them. You do what I have indicated a LOT. It's hypocrisy, Conservative.

    No, it takes 60 votes to get most legislation through the Senate and the Republicans did not have what Obama had last in 2009-2010, overwhelming numbers and 60 votes in the Senate

    As I stated I blamed both Bush and the Congress for the recession, you obviously ignored that so have a good night, I am not going to fight with a moderator.

    Neither of those governors is seeking to take collective bargaining away - only wage concessions.

    OK. So, then you would agree that the problems with the economy prior to 2008 are the fault of Bush and the problems with the economy after 2008 are the fault of Obama. Glad we have that straight.

    well, there's also rhetoric, expectations, uncertainties...

    even resentments

    you see, a big part of the economy is psychological...
