    Two Party Gospel Simpson-Bowles Is Terrible
    A Public Service Reminder: Simpson-Bowles Is Terrible

    Is Simpson-Bowles the new Gospel according to vested party interests? I smell another 'let's gut Glass–Steagall' compromise, and we all know how that turned out, don't we? Clinton says the Glass-Steagall fiasco was something he regretted taking part of, and even Reagan's economy saver, Paul Volker, has come out against keeping the so-called reform
    I am not against compromise, but when of these commissions made up of men like Irskine Bowels (who praise Paul Ryan as a good numbers man, the same Paul Ryan who is all over the place on Simpson-Bowles), and Alan Simpson, who was part of the GOP Senatorial Leadership team that gave us Reagan's debt, my bullshit radar goes off.


    Simpson-Bowles and Dodd-Frank, explained


    Forget Volcker — bring back Glass-Steagall

    Maybe Simpson-Bowles is a good starting point to begin negotiations, but anyone who believes Simpson-Bowles will be good for them, needs to rethink ... let a man with a Nobel in Economics explain...

    1) Liberals cant impose austerity ever because they always need to buy more and more votes with welfare entitlement spending.

    2) a liberal will lack the IQ to know that a addict must reduce drug use not increase it to kick the habit.

    3) government Solyndra ,A123 Systems, bridge no where, soviet spending and involvement harms the economy. This is why China and East Germany switched to capitalism. A child can observe this just not a low IQ liberal

    4) The government does not invent products so it cant grow the economy. Why not repeat this 100 times??

    Clinton "regretted" taking part in the "Glass/Steagal fiasco"? That's just more lies from the Serial Rapist himself.

    Anyone wanna' bet on the chances of an Obama administration re-implementing Glass/Steagal? Exactly as it was, not a watered down J.P. Morgan version?

    That'll never happen.

    Liberals in America have been fighting for expanded freedoms and liberties for all citizens since the founding of this great nation. Conservatives have fought with tooth and nail against these universal principles

    of course thats 1000% idiotic and liberal since liberals support government, not freedom!! See why we are positive liberalosm is based on pure ignorance?


    "The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to grain ground-" Thomas Jefferson

    Please note that liberty and government are seen as opposites.
    Welcome to your very first lesson in American History, but then again as a liberal you will lack the IQ to note anything much. Enjoy your total confusion.
