More bad news.
That's because their ideas suck. And still they talk the most and the loudest. I love talking to my Republican friends at work now.
Bush and the Tom Delay GOP from 2000-2006 only stuck the knife into America's back. Since they lost control in 2006, they've attempted to twist the knife. Just look at how the banks are holding us hostage and how Bush robbed us of $700 billion right before he leaves.
The GOP's last bad move will be to obstruct loaning the Big 3 the money they need.
The GOP are bitter and angry that they are not in control. And they'll take the whole country/world down with them.
I can't wait until next year.
lol bush robbed us of 700 billion, when it was the dems that voted it through primarily
How about this?
Front page article in the Washington Post today, calling attention to a highly questionable aspect of the $750 billion bailout plan: A Quiet Windfall For U.S. Banks.
We learn from WaPo that the Treasury Department slipped through a $140 billion tax windfall to US banks in theory repealing 1986 legislation, passed by Congress and signed by President Reagan.
The likely illegal change was aggressively lobbied for by banking officials, who sought to take advantage of the market turmoil and credit crisis.This is an ongoing issue we have witnessed in every prior bailout: Opportunism knows no sense of decency.
Did we tell Bush and the Treasury Department to slip this in?
Really, Americans like you need to wake up fast or there won't be an America. It might be called America, but we might as well be Mexico or Canada. What makes you any better than a Canadian or English or Australian worker? NOTHING!!! Anymore.
Time for the Conservative Party to go national.
Umm why didn't Congress actually read the fucking plan and catch on to this? I mean that is their job right?
How about this Andrew?
A critical - and radical - component of the bailout package proposed by the Bush administration has thus far failed to garner the serious attention of anyone in the press. Section 8 (which ironically reminds one of the popular name of the portion of the 1937 Housing Act that paved the way for subsidized affordable housing ) of this legislation is just a single sentence of thirty-two words, but it represents a significant consolidation of power and an abdication of oversight authority that's so flat-out astounding that it ought to set one's hair on fire. It reads, in its entirety:
Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.
Dirty Secret Of The Bailout: Thirty-Two Words That None Dare Utter
You still defending the rich and powerful Andrew? Amazing!!!
Yes, it is true, the banks and the Big 3 need to be bailed out from Bushanomics. Yes, the Dems signed it Andrew, which by the way is the gayest name in the world.
The banks don't actually need the money. It's just the biggest bank robbery ever. Just like the Unions can shut down a company, the banks can shut down an entire economy if we don't give in to their demands ANDREW. So yes, it is a must. If we don't, they'll shut us down.
And the Big 3 need some money to buy them some time. Nothing will be fixed until Bush leaves office. And guys like Ted Stevens. He sure as hell isn't going to help fix the problems that he created. Not unless you give him $250k worth of shit of course.
cause they be stupid people they got duped into voting for the war too by George the CHimp!!!
They did read the bailout, the Bush admin performed a
bait and switch.
how's come yer side ain't smart enough to see that coming?? I mean come on man,,, George the chimp been doing ya that way for nigh onto 8 years
