    Are you going to share with us what you think that is?

    Nope. Pretty sure the Republocrats didn't do a damned thing to help the rest of us out. Wall Street and the Banks got in trouble and look how fast they all passed those bills to take our money and give it to them. Look how fast. Wall Street and the Banks go theirs...look how slow the rest of us were taken care of. ****ing dumped by the curb side. Thanks for nothing.

    You are entitled to your opinion.

    Once the investment banks are separated from commercial banks, they we can let the investment banks fail....I'll be happy to support that.

    Evidently, I do not have the libertarian conversion factors needed to turn a positive to a negative.

    The QE programs and the similiar actions we are currently undertaking are nothing more than Wall Street welfare programs financed on the back of the middle class.

    Let me reassure you, it is a very good thing.
    That doesn't convince me but O.K. (Not that I really expect people to disclose things like this)

    There has been plenty of time to have done that. It hasn't been done and it never is going to happen when those 100% against it are running the country's finances.

    We just need to retake the House to get this passed.

    They had full control of the House. It's easy to introduce bills that you know you are never going to actually have to vote on.
