    I don't know how many times I have been accused of class warfare when I have backed a progressive tax and the repeal of the current tax cuts for the ultra rich.

    The current proposed bail out is the ultimate of class warfare. It is the rich in power who are responsible for the crisis who will get the money for their failed mortgages. We will give them the money that they have lost. Then who will be the ones who now run this massive government program of administering these loans? Many of the very people who got US into this mess.

    Why else would Pat Paulson say that there is no oversight, no accountability, no possible review by courts or future administrations.

    Bend over everyone on these boards and get out your vaseline if you can still afford it.

    Let's also deregulate Health Care like McMumbles wants. Fuck, you won't have any money to pay for it anyway.

    The conservatives are rallying against it because of its inherent socialist mechanisms.

    I have only heard a few like Shelby to this point.

    This administration isn't conservative in the fucking least. I don't see how a real conservative Republican could continue to back Bush and his policies.

    If Paulson is so damn smart, why did he let US get this far before screaming that the Sky Is Falling and you have to vote today or die.

    Conservatives have long opposed Bush on numerous things such as No Child Left Behind, immigration amensty, the Rx Drug Plan, lack of ledership on reforming SS (the next big bailout) to name a few.

    They aren't opposed to this just because of the price tag. The detractors of the bailout are like the demons possessing the lad in Galillee, Legion. Would that we had a herd of swine to cast them into.

    You are absolutely right about Bush.

    Paulson didn't but, Snow, his predecessor did. That's why the administration proposed a massive reform in 2003. (See the other thread for my links on that).
