GOODBYE SPENDING, HELLO HELP FOR SMALL BUSINESS!!!! - November 3, 2009, 08:34 PM

Thank you Virginia for speaking out at the ballot box. I feel like VA has finally recovered from the fog of the 'Hope and Change" rhetoric. The spending in DC is out of control and voters here in VA have the closest and loudest voice to hopefully wake up those in control in D.C....

WE DONT WANT YOUR $1.2 TRILLION HEALTH CARE
STAY OUT OUR FINANCIAL MARKETS
LET BANKS AND OTHER POORLY MANAGED INDUSTRIES FAIL

On a more local note, I truly hope McDonnell and his staff remain REAL conservatives and let the backbone VA's economy (small business) regain is strength.

Let's spit facts here and not bullshit, OK.

- Banking and Financial regulation was loosened to all hell under - BUSH & CO.

- Banking and Finance turned into a shill game under - BUSH & CO.

- The SEC practiced sloppy regulation and oversight under - BUSH & CO.

- Bailout money was authorized and distributed to poorly managed companies that everyone knew should have died on the vine under - BUSH & Paulson

- It is universally agreed that healthcare needs a major overhaul.

How you correlated any of this corresponding to a correcting of the tide by a Republican winning the gubernatorial race in Virginia, that truly amazes me.

I am not sure if this was meant to be funny or not...but are you going to spit "facts" or just list ambiguous, general topics?

It was caused by both sides. A conservative hasn't held office in a while

Thanks for making this easy...

First of all lets really check the facts. Liberals held control of Congress at the time of the financial collapse. Names like Reid, Pelosi and Dodd might ring a bell. We should all know by now that decisions, outside of war, that truly impact this country are made there, not the Oval Office.

True conservatives did not support Bush on the first round of bailouts, and most definitely will not support any more.

The banking regulations that were "loosened to all hell" had nothing to do with ANY Bush policy; unless you believe that the accountants who doctored the books got the idea from him. If so, then you should stay in the "fog".

Also, the bad loans were forced on many of the bigger mortgage companies with complete government financial backing. Knowing the loans were backed by the big boys in DC, of course, the Wall Street bankers wanted in on a can't lose deal. And the TRUTH is they were right, they did not lose! We are by saving them.

Health care needs reform. I said it. Are you happy? What health care does not need is reform that costs the taxpayer, you and me, $1.2 trillion. That does nothing to help the problem, it only makes one big medical DMV!

I was glad to see that some people still have common sense around here, and know that enough is enough. We do not have any more money to give up in taxes, so lets go in another direction.

Why is it that people still make excuses for failures during Bush's reign? Just because he didn't directly cause one thing or another doesn't mean that he is not ACCOUNTABLE. He was the president for 8 YEARS. Not to mention many Reps in Congress and the House lost their positions in those 8 years which should be a clear indication that the party lines were crossed by many citizens.

Besides, the bigger problems are ahead thanks to the global face that the US has lost during Bush's presidency. The current economic situation is small change compared to what could happen in the future if Clinton doesn't fix things...

- The Liberals were forced into making quick decisions because Bush and his crew made disasterous repeals and policy for 7 years that were always ramrodded by the, until recently, Republican control House.


True conservatives did not support Bush on the first round of bailouts, and most definitely will not support any more.

- That's good to know because NO ONE on either side of the House supports additional bailouts and frankly most American's didn't either, but the bailout was about triage not about repair.

The banking regulations that were "loosened to all hell" had nothing to do with ANY Bush policy; unless you believe that the accountants who doctored the books got the idea from him. If so, then you should stay in the "fog".

- What in the hell are you talking about?

Also, the bad loans were forced on many of the bigger mortgage companies with complete government financial backing. Knowing the loans were backed by the big boys in DC, of course, the Wall Street bankers wanted in on a can't lose deal. And the TRUTH is they were right, they did not lose! We are by saving them.

- And who forced them to take the money. Paulson, who was appointed by Bush, and who was the CEO of Goldman Sachs before his appointment. Crooneyism at its very finest.

Less we not forget, right now he and Benake are in a bit of hot water for basically strong arming Bank Of America into picking up Merrill Lynch by basically implying if they didn't, they'd be cut off from the Federal Reserve Discount Window.

It cost BOA's CEO his job basically (notwithstanding his stupid acquisition of Countrywide)

Health care needs reform. I said it. Are you happy? What health care does not need is reform that costs the taxpayer, you and me, $1.2 trillion. That does nothing to help the problem, it only makes one big medical DMV!

- Umm, you apparently have never had the experience of having to pay for medical expenses w/o coverage. I have.

Or worse, the indignity of having your health insurer say a procedure is not covered therefore you must either sit and pound sand, or chose another procedure which you know will have no effect. I have.
Oh, and they WILL NOT cover the non-effective / temporarily effective procedure a second time.

Come back and talk to me after you've been through this ...


I was glad to see that some people still have common sense around here, and know that enough is enough. We do not have any more money to give up in taxes, so lets go in another direction.
