1. To bad they aren't listening. I called both congressman and senator (both republicans) and I

 

told them they lost the election and for people like me who make under $50,000 living in rural countryside we are seeing a party who doesn't give a dang about us. I told them we are watching and we will vote them out.

2. lol- scared now

This is the same guy that said we needed to bail out Wall St or we(he and his buddies) were all going to die.

I wonder what his angle is this time.

7. Cramer is a truth teller (like him or not) He said new PA rules would not let his father vote

 

You know - those voter suppression rules.

Cramer is a good Democrat - get over it. We have a big tent party.

9. I'm generally fond of Cramer, too.

You have to take his buys and sells with a huge grain of salt though. He has wild opinion swings, from over-enthusiastic to overly-pessimistic, and then back again.

He made his money doing something totally different from what the individual investor can do, though. And he is too easily charmed by sweet-talking CEO's hawking their companies' outlooks.

13. Of course. I am siding with Cramer on politics (he votes for Obama)

 

I will leave his stock picks for another to judge.

14. Funny, I've always considered him a professional liar

and a con. This guy is way up high on my list of non-credible tools.

Glad to hear this message, though.

22. Is he a Democrat?

I am a fan of his, but I wasn't sure where he stood politically. I know he has knocked socially responsible investing, but he has said other things that seemed more progressive.

8. And Nancy Pelosi voted to "bail out Wall Street"

 

Are you going to call her out for the same reason?

18. Yep

I'm happy to call out the the people who support big money over people. I know you're a support of Wall St. to the death, however, so I don't have to ask where you're standing.

"All cliff, all the time" "Be AFRAID!" "We work for billionaires" CNBC

15. There are more than a few lefty's on that network...

It's just that that ass hole from the Chicago Floor "Santanella" is so outspoken.

I use to have that on all day when I was working at home. I wanted to be able to talk to my tax clients about the economy.

Now, I maybe look when I know economic numbers are released.

I remember back in 1989 when the CNBC was the Financial Channel, if my memory proves accurate, that ass hole Cavuto would spout out right wing talking points when ever he could and I would yell at the tv and it drove Mrs WCGreen crazy because she was still under the impression that people on "news" programs were unbiased.

4. I write my representative John Culberson R-TX who says we have a spending problem

And not a revenue problem. He is a big part of the Bush years spending and tax cuts. I looked up his voting record, yeas with the repubs and nays with Democrats in the lead, I told him he was a part of the spending problem and he needs to come up with a way to pay for the two unfunded wars he wanted. Doubt he understands but I will not stop.

5. Is the sky falling? Is the ocean wearing rubber pants to keep its bottom dry?

Agreeing with Cramer happens just about as often.

16. Obama needs to send out a signal that the deal after Jan 1 isn't as good

as the deal the GOP can get today.

Obama should make it clear that if they don't come to the table now, he won't sign a permanent cut even for incomes under $250K. The better economic policy is to make that temporary, dependent on triggers as the economy improves. And this makes better politics as well because:

a) that puts more pressure on the GOP to take today's deal; and

b) if they don't, a temporary cut gives Obama another shot to negotiate this in 1 or 2 years.
