I do blame Obama (and the Dems before him) for the bad economy but that is a whole different subject. But I never had any expectation of a Democrat (Obama) to remove Clinton's ban. I voted for a Republican to do it and other things. As it turns out, Bush just co-opted Democrat ideas. My point is I'm disillusioned with both parties. That is why I'm on strike (Atlas Shrugged). I'm minimizing or eliminating my tax liability by eliminating my income. Living off of savings now.
