    Democrats were powerless 2007/2008. Obama also could not change the giveaway to the rich tax rates. he never had control of Congress except for 35 days all
    So what other TV channel puts out GOP propaganda like Fox?
    The Wall Street journal is owned by Rupert Murdoch and its editorial page is a joke in the real world. Hands off Venezuela. We've been saying that to Republicans for decades and decades.
    spent on Obamacare. He just showed how strong our economy is if politicians would just leave it alone. Trump's big accomplishment is not ruining the Obama recovery.

    Its audience knows hundreds of phony scandals and ridiculous conspiracy theories and just plain MIss information. It's a joke around the world.

    Democrats took both houses of Congress January of 2007 lame ducking President Bush, are you really going to assert that after 10 years the Democrats take back the Congress and then Pelosi and Reid proceeded to do Bush's bidding?

    You got to get it by a Democratic house first. McConnell has been extraordinarily loathe to go that route. And the Democrats have had the house at least half the time since Reagan was first elected. And even after reconciliation it still has to pass the house. Which means without queen Nancy's approval it's doa.

    Unfortunately that's all we've gotten the last 35 years tax cuts for the rich and cuts in services for everyone else. Through reconciliation great job!

    Fannie and Freddie share of the market went from 70% to 30% after GOP crony oversight. I don't know what you're going on about.

    Sorry most of that reduction happened under Obama and is the direct result of Dodd Frank one of the major reason the housing market has stayed flat..

    Not that simple. A lot of the MBS crap was chopped into tranches, rated AAA by bond rating agencies, and flogged to institutional investors and the public.

    Bologna I'm talking about cheap college and training infrastructure. The Republicans have cut taxes on the rich so many times we have a flat tax system with everyone paying about 27% of their income in all taxes. Everything you know about who pays taxes is bologna. Google the only tax graph you need to know. O
    Read something. It happened in 2003. The usual crony GOP oversight. Happens every time will happen with Trump. The question is where LOL?
    only garbage propaganda and misinformed GOP voters makes this mess possible

    It happened around 2003 when garbage GOP crony oversight let countrywide and AIG etcetera etc run wild. Also happened with GOP oversight of big oil big health big pharma etc etc. It always does for crying out loud. the GOP is the swamp especially the last 35 years. Only crap propaganda makes this mess possible. The GOP has a revolving door lobbyist operation going....

    It is the GOP that goose steps. The Democrats always give the Republicans a few votes. All Republicans care about is cutting taxes on the rich and screwing everybody else. That's all they've ever done unless backed up against the wall....

    And they wouldn't necessarily have been rated triple a without FHA insurance which is controlled to some extent by Fannie and Freddie.

    Republican policy has nothing to do with the high cost of college. College profs making six figures as does supply and demand and the colleges themselves going out of their way to make a four year degree take six. Bogus graph. Oh and 27 percent of 1 million is 10 times more than 27 % of 100000 which in turn is 10 times more than 10000.

    Your ignorance is daunting. Reagan started going after public universities when he was governor of California. And they have gone after them ever since.

    No, a lot of the AAA rating was outright fraud.
