    If I Were in Charge!

    You are the one that needs to catch up on the facts.

    It was the Democrats that have strongly supported and robbed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that caused the housing bubble. The bursting of that bubble was the catalyst for the present economic disaster in the US.

    It all started in 1973 with Jimmy Carter and the passage of the Community Reinvestment Act. From there and for the next 35
    years, our country has been taken down by the liberal Democrats until, Here We Are Now!

    You and your liberal friends need to read about James Johnson, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelick, and others who were at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The millions they received makes this round of bank bonuses look like peanuts.

    This is sickening and a huge slap in the face of American taxpayers. Remember this about the present government when voting in 2012.

    It was liberal Democrats, led by Christopher Dodd and Barney Frank, who for years.....including the present year......denied that Fannie/Freddie were taking big risks that could lead to a financial crisis.

    The records regarding the contributions of Fannie/Freddie to congressional candidates and lobbyists are estimated to be $200 million, are sealed.

    In all these cases, the foreclosure rate went up and nobody who advocated those lower lending standards was ever punished politically......NOT one....Not Barney Frank....Not Chis Dodd....Not Gov. Cuomo

    We are NOT allowed any information from the Freedom of Information Act per ....OBAMA.

    Only IN Government can they take money EARNED by Taxpayers and give it to losers.

    With the majority of progressive liberals, its always somebody else's fault and somebody else's money they are "entitled" to. They are such lazy parasitic social dependents, always wanting more and too lazy to earn it.

    Can you use a bigger font? How about bolding your messages? Maybe your computer has a key for larger Caps?
