    We do not have an anti-business/anti-capitalist environment now more than any other time in the last 50 years.

    How, exactly, would be the important bit. How do you make the housing market recover faster?
    Do you want the absolute method or the fair method?

    a) You can pay off everyone's mortgage
    b) You can buy all the vacant property and not sell it
    c) You can reduce government redundancy to speed up the foreclosure process

    Clinton obviously doesn't know what he's saying. Our economy was so horrid back then wasn't it?

    Somebody find Bill Clinton an overweight fat chick with an oral fetish, and quickly. He's beginning to get in the way.

    Clinton is actually one of my favorite US Presidents. He was a very good leader IMO. A lot of republicans admire him too.

    He has a point.

    Bill Clinton Says Don

    “I think it’s crazy for us to be talking about doing this right now,” he said. “I don’t think it’s healthy to have big tax cuts or big tax increases or big spending cuts right now. We need to put America back to work first.”

    Politics has distorted the facts of the nation’s debt ceiling during the debate between Obama and congressional Republicans, Clinton said.

    “When you vote to raise the debt ceiling, you’re not legitimizing further deficits,” he said. “You’re voting to pay what you owe for what has already been done.”

    There has been more over-regulation in the past 2 years, than the past 50 combined.

    And before you start whinging, "prove it", I'll leave you with this: The drilling ban, Obamacare, EPA regs against coal fired power plants, just for starters.
