The setup: Carter and Dems passed the CRA. Then-US Attorney Eric Holder, AG Reno, A Cuomo and Clinton used the CRA to force banks to make bad loans. These bad loans, had they been avoided, would have eliminated the housing bubble AND forced millions of people to live within their means. Now, a primary cause of divorce is financial difficulties. How many divorces have occured as a result of the economic collapse? How many children are living in single-parent families because of these divorces?

How many families have Democrat policies destroyed in the past five years? How many angry, young killers have they created?

It sounds conspiratorial but I think they wanted this hosting meltdown so that they could eventually own all private property.

Yes, JRusso, a truly devastating situation.

Maryanne, I don't think Libs really care about unintended consequences except insofar as it gives them something else to "fix".

UPDATE: Senator Harry Reid appeared on the floor of the Senate this evening announcing that there would be no vote tonight. He said that they will reconvene Monday morning at 11am. “There’s still significant distance between the two sides, but negotiations continue,” Reid said. “There’s still time left to reach an agreement, and we intend to continue negotiations.” With only one day left of the year, it is looking like a very slim chance the two sides can come together to reach a fiscal cliff deal.

UPDATE: Republicans have taken the CPI off the table in an effort to help negotiations....
