Oh, to Live in a Battleground State

Oh, to Live in a Battleground State

“The situation is worsened as many Democrats don't even bother to vote any more, much less offer for public office. Standing in the voting booth and confronting page after page of local offices for which there is no Democrat to vote for is pretting depressing.”

“Don't know what planet you're on. THERE IS NO "DEATH PANEL." That was made up by someone trying to kill the bill.”

“Honest discussion would be nice, but it's obviously not possible on these pages as commenters appear to have almost no knowledge of what's in the bill or how Congress works (or doesn't).”

“Please let me know who all these members of Congress are that didn't read the bill; they are obviously too stupid to be walking around, much less be representing anyone in Congress. The bill was posted on the Internet before it was passed. I have read it. Have you?”

“"Let's pass it, so we can see what's in it!" Nancy Pelosi”

“So you saw this and the class act problems coming and you knew it was unconstitutional. BTW, Nancy Pelosi was one of them.”

“The "too stupid to walk around" winner is Nancy Pelosi for her divine wisdom: "Let's pass it so we can see what's in it!" Pure genius!”

“Yes, I tried to read it, but it was so full of legaleze not to be intelligible to the average person.”

“You must have been living on some other planet since 1999, the date of the NYT article you referenced. Two months after the NYT article you referenced, Congress repealed the Glass-Steagall Act that had regulated the financial sector since the run on the banks in the Depression. Believing that bearing the high risks undertaken in underwriting insurance is not good banking practice, Congress had extended GSA in 1956. The Bank Holding Company Act further separated financial activities by creating a wall between insurance and banking--banks were permitted to sell insurance and insurance products but were prohibited from underwriting. In November of 1999, Congress, led by Sen. Phil Gramm and joined by Reps. Leach and Bliley (all Republicans) repealed the GSA with the establishment of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, which eliminated the GSA restrictions against affiliations between commercial and investment banks. Furthermore, the Gramm-Leach-BlileyAct allows banking institutions to provide a broader range of services, including underwriting and other dealing activities. In that same year, the Commodities Futures Markets were effectively deregulated. These actions were taken in response to the Republican philosophy Huffington correctly states in her article. As a liberal Democrat, I am ashamed of my own party for having sat by while Reagan sold this snake oil and not standing up for something they knew was wrong.”
