13. Democrats controlled the House, Senate and White house from 2009-2011

 

and instead of focusing on green jobs and energy independence, they focused on passing a law that requires everyone in the US to buy corporate insurance, without even hearing from single payer advocates (Dem Max Baucus had them arrested).

Wouldn't it have been great if the priorities were different?

Clinton didn't do a GD thing for energy independence during his entire 8 years.

Why was that?

Blaming repubs makes some people feel better, but the truth is neither party wants energy independence. That's a fact, proven by history. And the sooner Citizens realize that neither party wants energy independence, the sooner the problem can be fixed.
