The truth hurts. Just google "OFHEO Hearing" and watch the Republicans try to curtail the recklessness that crashed us in 2008 and watch YOUR leaders pretend there is no problem. It's all nice and tidy in the public record for anyone who wants the truth.

Were YOU in a coma in 2005 when McCain and Republicans in OFHEO and the House were trying to curtail the LIBERAL housebuying program under Freddie, Fannie, and the Community Reinvestment Act (a Carter/Clinton promoted program) that really crashed the economy in 2008?

Remember, it is BOTH Houses of CONGRESS that controls spending.

Apparently you've been in a coma since 2008, Lois, because it's all you can focus on.
The American economy added 88,000 jobs in March, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which was a major miss from predictions. Forecasters were expecting between 150,000-200,000 jobs added. The unemployment rate dropped despite the lackluster number added due to a sharp drop in the labor force participation rate - from 7.7 to 7.6%. Nearly half a million people stopped looking for work in March.

In short, then, the economy stalled after a surprisingly strong February. Employers weren't hiring much and a lot of people gave up looking for jobs. Even the federal government lost jobs - though that was...
