Just keep repeating that line anytime the subject of the economy or this "credit crisis" comes up.

I want Boner to OWN that statement.

They made this happen in their ongoing effort to make America fail.

3. To Borrow An Argument From Another Issue..........
..........they voted for it only because the alternative was so much worse. And sometimes you have to choose the lesser of two evils whether you like it or not.

5. This is so confusing.
Edited on Sat Aug-06-11 05:08 AM by JoeyT
A few days ago we got nearly everything we wanted and the Oompa Loompa was lying about getting what they wanted because it was nearly all good. Now they got 98% of what they wanted because it's nearly all bad. Unless S&P is lying, which apparently they are, in which case...Hell if I know.

These talking points are nearly impossible to follow.

Edited to add: I tend to think they got 98% of what they wanted, and this is the end result. Republican economic policy is utter garbage.

6. excellent point ! But, it doesn't sound like even if we had gotten
revenues in there it would have helped. S&Ps looking for long term reform on medicare and SS.

7. Just sounds like another crazy group screaming for spending cuts instead of revenue increases
Spending cuts will kill the Middle and Poor and the backbone of this country.

When will people get it that if you need money, you raise money. You don't cut spending.

Fuck the S&P, why do we give them power? The rich banksters are going to ruin us if we keep giving them the chance.

9. Sorry, but there are two sides to this
the side that "won" the 98% and the side that "lost" by getting 2%.
