    I don't remember that. I recall them wanting fair regulations that allowed businesses to function and expand.

    I do remember them wanting more regulations. It was back in 2003, I think. There was this giant argument about some kind of impending financial crisis and there were red flags due to the practices at Fannie and Freddie. It was the tip of the iceberg, but the Dems said it was a bunch of hogwash. Maxine Waters, Barney Frank and others told the Republicans basically that they were full of shit and that there were no problems. The Republicans wanted an investigation or at least more regulations and oversight and the Dems were so offended by this that they blocked any further discussion. They called the hearings a "political lynching of Franklin Raines." Of course, Raines left with millions of dollars before the big crash. He should have gone to jail, but I think he actually got a position in the Obama administration.

    you're right on everything...democrats want less regulations on minorities buying homes...OOOOPS


    but what's funny is democrats always portray republicans/conservatives as wanting ZERO regulation, so when they heard Romney say SOME regulation was good, they didnt understand.......they think it's a move to the center....LOL...these people are so uninformed and stupid

    The left always groups people and assumes that they must think a certain way. They do this with minorities, Republicans and everyone else. Then they act shocked when a person is actually different from the stereotype they tagged them with.

    So, they were wrong yet again, but they blame it on Romney for not living up to their description of him. How screwed up is that?

    Of course Conservatives want regulation.

    They want to outlaw collective bargaining. They want no Unions. They want to regulate what you can and can't say. And they want Christianity to make policy in this country.

    Sheesh..

    We know we know..

    Don't forget choosing our lightbulbs, home appliances, what kind of toilets we should have and how much we are allowed to practice free speech. I also hate the thought of government dictating how my home will look, including the roof and what kind of car will be in my driveway.

    Some schools have decided that children who refuse to eat certain foods are racist, so they are working on getting them to eat different types of ethnic foods. Some teachers have actually determined that it's wrong for children to have best friends, so they discourage children from becoming closer with others. If they see children always hanging out at recess with the same child, they separate them and force the children to play with someone else. Other school districts are so obsessed with race that they are starting to bus children long distances so that every school can be perfectly balanced by color. That is all that matters to them.

    The big one for me is the healthcare choices. We're so screwed if that crappy legislation stands. They already took away my aerosol asthma inhaler and replaced it with one that doesn't work as well, then I'll pay as estimated 3 times as much for my healthcare insurance, but cannot expect better quality for the money. With so many doctors threatening to quit practicing and fewer going into the medical field, we'll end up with some mediocre doctors who speak poor English. I pity those over 70, who won't get surgeries they need and anyone on dialysis will be out of luck. Population control will be the objective over quality of care. Which Democrat said that old people have a duty to die? I think this legislation will force them to fulfill that duty.

    The above is an ignorant and idiotic post.

    If conservatives believe abortion is wrong, than don’t practice it; but don’t use the authority of government to violate the Constitutional right to privacy and expand that authority into one’s bedroom. This will forever be a point of conservative hypocrisy.

    ‘Liberals’ have no opposition to ‘school choice,’ they disagree with enriching private schools with taxpayer funds at the expense of public schools.

    They have no opposition as to choice in healthcare, one may purchase any health insurance policy or none at all.

    If ‘Medicare choice’ means one advocates the Ryan plan, no, that’s not opposition to ‘Medicare choice,’ that’s opposition to a reckless and irresponsible ‘plan’ designed to leave low-income seniors without healthcare when they retire in the future.

    The same is true with ‘Social Security choice,’ ending the program with no provisions for low-income wage-earners when they retire is not a ‘choice,’

    ‘Liberals’ have never proposed any law prohibiting the ownership of a particular vehicle, it’s color, how one sets his thermostat, how one disciplines his children, or what food he may eat.

    The myths the right contrives and believes in are remarkable.

    As to the OP, ‘liberals’ have never accused conservatives of advocating ‘zero’ regulation; the accurate accusation is that the regulation the right advocates is, for the most part, wholly lacking, insufficient, and often benefits those to be regulated rather than the public to be protected.
