Do you have ANY idea how wrong you are!! What a load of doggy doo. Oh, yes, those POOR bankers were just FORCED to package those phony derivatives! Darn those poor people for (and of course, don't forget Barney Frank!) making those multi-billionaire bankers abuse the system. Why don't you stop babbling and pick up a couple economics and history books. What a clown.

The derivatives weren't phoney, there was 3 trillion dollars available to lend. What was phoney was the market Congress delivered to the mortgage industry. That market couldn't even pay their share of a section 8 rental.

I guess you forgot all of those busloads of ACORNS protesting on the lawns of the bankers and threatening their families.

You might try looking up the videos that show the thugs at the homes of bankers. They are on the net.

It wasn't just the multi-billionaire bankers.

My local bank, one branch strong, was also forced into the mess by Barney.

So, remember last summer when the Obama administration unveiled its new plans to completely change requirements to receive welfare, yeah well Republicans are finally taking up efforts again to put a stop to it. This policy “allows states to apply for waivers under the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program, or welfare reform, in order to test new ways to increase employment among welfare recipients.” In essence, that means that a state could make its way around the Welfare to Work policy. Welfare to work requires welfare recipients prove that they are making an effort to find work in order...
