  •  TARP? (0+ / 0-)

    A fine example.

    Voters are sick and tired of seeing taxpayer money doled out to corporations who are making record profits.  

    Obama had a choice of putting out  good jobs bill and forcing the GOP to cave to voter pressure.  Instead, he loaded it up with corporate welfare, much as he did ACA - and Republicans still didn't vote for it.

    If Dems get whatever watered down and tax break-laden klinker of a bill passed, it will still probably be done with no GoP support.  

    That can only mean that the WH wants this kind of bill, that they've promised these giveaways to their own corporate donors and don't really care how many jobs are created.

    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

    •  TARP wasn't an Obama program, it was (1+ / 0-)

      a Bush program that Obama and the evil Geithner altered to make it necessary for the evil corporations to pay back those loans tout suite.  By controlling executive pay I might add.  He also funneled a chunk of it to the auto industry and saved a whole lot of jobs AND helped begin rebuilding our manufacturing sector.  

      Reflexively yelling about TARP and Obama proves my point that you're not paying attention to facts.

      I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
