I do not agree with Warren on much, but I do with her on this. It is plain wrong to let any company be they banks or whatever to become too big to fail. Something needs to be done.
    We do...

    ...but what we really need, are laws that prohibit the government from forcing private companies to do something stupid. We need a law that makes ot illegal for the Federal Reserve to pressure private banks from recognizing welfare payments as income on loan applications.

    Welfare payments count as income? Wow, wonders will never cease.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Rand Paul: Olmsted Project A 'Boondoggle', But Necessary
    Dude, you regurgitate this crap yet you gave no retort to the below comments when I posted them in your thread you started about it. Care to rekindle this debate? I think not. Hopefully you realize it's a futile effort.

    I love how you guys do no homework on this and simply trust that the Huff Post will give you an unbiased story. You do know that Dianne Feinstein and RINO Bob Corker actually wrote this into the bill right? Also, liberals love to talk about infrastructure (especially your messiah with his "roads and bridges" line that he puts in almost every speech) and how it is crumbling, how it is behind the times, etc, etc. Here is a real, honest to God example of that. Prior to this project, the 2 locks and dams that control this portion of the river were literally being operated by hand, by crews on steamboats. But you guys want to criticize someone who has already stated in numerous letters that he is in opposition to the mismanagement of the project. The dude wasn't even in office when the project started!
    Sen. Paul Issues Letter to Lt. Gen. Bostick on Olmsted Locks and Dam Project Rand Paul | United States Senator
    The funniest thing, by far, is if he had gone all Ted Cruz about this and jumped all over McConnell and anyone else who would listen you guys would instead be saying that he's a nut for wanting to leave a half finished dam in place.
    My question to all of you is, what would you have done if you were Paul? The guy's opposed the waste, fraud, and abuse that has occurred. He has written letters to the Army Corps of Engineers. He has publicly denounced the manner in which the project has been conducted. However, the guy is also not an idiot and realizes that this thing is past the point of no return. You just can't sink that much money into something and get no return. Period. It would be like buying a Lamborghini and the transmission going out on it 1000 miles in to having it. You aren't going to just dump the car. You sunk so much money in to it you may as well go further and replace the transmission.
    Like Paul, I'm not a fan of this crap. It drives me nuts to see these gov't projects go WAY over budget like they do. However, I'm not an idiot. I understand that at some point you have to keep pushing ahead to finish something like this. This dam, IMO, is at that point.

    Hurting the country, especially on such a large scale, for one's own gain... that should be punished. Severely.
    They are only doing business how the government is instructing them to.

    Remember the "Wall St Reform"? It requires large business to have "X" amount of money in reserves to operate or be considered insolvent...Now these large companies are being ridiculed by the same government whose laws they are following.

    Damned if they do and damned if they dont.

    And sorry, I find it hard to take anything Elizabeth Warren says as real. She is just as big a liar as Obama....Mrs high cheekbone Native American....LOL...thats too funny.
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.
