Obama And Hard Choices | Points and Figures
Really? Let's take a look at that!
Reality check. We have NEVER gotten out of a recession without a massive influx of government spending. In the case of Reagan, it wasn't his giveaway's to the rich, it was the fact that he double the level of federal spending in 8 years and tripled the national debt. Bush spent a trillion dollars on a war.
The problem with the stimulus was that it was too small.
Yes, how dare these American Citizens express their opinions. Only Teabaggers should be allowed to do that when the Koch Brothers say they can.
The bankruptcy process wouldn't have saved GM. In 2009, the Banks were frozen, credit was dried up, and no one was ready to step in and help GM out. And had GM and Chrysler failed, there would have been a domino effect on all the other companies and small businesses that would have gone out of business as well.
If you want to see where the GOP has truly lost it's way, it's that they think it's a horrible thing that we put the guys who actually assembled the cars ahead of the guys who merely gambled on stock performance.
"It's going to" isn't an argument. Dodd-Frank is a flawed legislation, given how much influence the banking industry has on both parties... but it is also a vast improvement.
Of course, more laws aren't the answer. Throwing these guys in big boy jail for repeated sodomy would have a much greater impact.
