    It is realluy sad that all you care about doing is badmouthing Obama when clearly the whole of congress is to blame here. Part of the problem with people like you is you associate this with one single person and then pretend the whole system isn't completely screwed. But good for you playing find obama in a huge picture of purchased lawmakers on both sides.

    The subject was Obama so I addressed Obama. Nowhere did I define anyone else. I complained that Obama had not stood up to the bad guys and was told that he was too busy. So, I said he mut also be on the take although that was certainly somewhat sarcastic.

    You're such a dedicated loyalist that you couldn't see the context. Read my posts again if you have the time and you'll find that your evaluation is completely incorrect.

    you do realize neither the topic or the Op even says the word obama in them. You actually brought Obama into this and started trying to make this about obama. if you did not notice the heavy handed way you steered this to only be about obama despite clearly being a government problem both sides should be concerned with, perhaps you need to take another look at your blinding Obama hate because you seem to be missing the very large congressional ass raping you are getting, and that might be an issue.

    yep.

    corporations probably wrote the PPACA, too. it's disappointing. letting corporate interests heavily influence legislation is a bit like letting politicians draw their own districts.

    Jesus H. Christopher on a crutch. You got me! However, don't lose sight of my being critical rather than "blind hatred". I've defended Obama as often as I've attacked him.

    I've had no kind words for congress. I'm an equal opportunity politician basher.

    I think you're thinking of Part D, not Part C. I see Obamacare was equally crafted by the Part D beneficiaries and their bags of cash.
    I didn't realize this bill took over 4 years to write. given the length of time it took to create the mess, the decades special interest has had to infiltrate both parties and the complete lack of real outrage among the voters I'm not sure what you expect in 4 years... Obama to do the angry black man routine and really trip the trigger of many on the Right.

    No I mean the part C done in 97.

    OK, we're having good faith confusion. I confess not remembering Part C.

    Also, which bill are we talking about now. I've lost track

    The bill written in the House was for regulating transactions on Wall Street. The thrust would appear to be watering down much of the rules to at least limit the damage another 'invisible hand' jacking off the market. I have read the derivative market will be left rather wide open.

    Welcome to:

    Enjoy the plutocracy. This country is literally being purchased and literally allowing corporations and banks to run the show. This is sickening.

    But, when something good happens, it's all Obama's doing, so say people like you.

    something good = Obama did it!

    something bad = Obama had nothing to do with it.
