    senorbullwinkle, this cartoon is correct… but you’d find Bush behind the check out desk with his sleeves rolled up!

    With Kagan as the nominee and certainly to be ratified will she recuse herself on any issue concerning Goldman-Sachs? She has a connection with them and was paid by them.

    Wall Street has deep connections with both parties.

    “On Wall and Main streets they call William Jefferson Clinton the “comeback kid,” but it’s not because of some election-day surprise.

    It’s because most everything he did regarding financial services regulation has come back to haunt us.

    If it wasn’t apparent before, the former president’s handiwork became clear last week when President Obama announced sweeping financial services reform. The plan’s efforts to bring fair dealing to the mortgage markets, rules to the derivative marketplace and restraint to big financial firms underscored the missteps of the second Clinton term. ”

    “That’s like forcing 30 M new customers to purchase health insurance from those “evil” insurance companies.”

    • Oh, that mandate? That’s courtesy of your “Smaller Government” Republicans. It’s in Republican Mitt Romney’s health care, it was in the Republican healthcare alternative to Hillary’s plan, and they managed to get it in this plan – and then still didn’t vote for it.

    The more you know.

    They proposed a bad idea, realized it was a bad idea and then didn’t vote for it. An intelligent person changes their mind when new evidence shows it to be in error. Don’t you ever change your mind?

    How ‘bout they changed their minds ‘cause they hoped they could hand Obama a legislative defeat?

    And that Bill Clinton article. Looks like Bill was on the premises, but the article seems to say that lotsa other folks was doin’ the dirty work!

    • They changed their minds? They’ve put the idea forth THREE times now and they’re just now changing their mind? They didn’t change their mind on it with “HillaryCare,” they still use it with “RomneyCare,” and so they propose it a third time with ObamaRomneyCare and now they’re “”changing their mind?””
    • I still have to have Insurance to drive in VA. How about they “change their mind” on that?
    • But wait, one might say, what if you get into an accident or hit someone else? Well then you have the insurance company’s money pool to pay off the cost so you yourself aren’t bankrupted by a sudden high unexpected cost, right? That could never apply to health at all……

    Jade If you want to think seriously about health care go back to your auto insurance. You still pay for gas, oil, and all repairs under $200 or $500. If you did that with health, your insurance would easily cover catastrophes. But we insist on first dollar coverage.

    There are so many nuances with health that over a short chat line it can’t be resolved.

    Not to sound like an old Starkist tuna ad but, Sorry Charlie :=D,What that article says is that Bill made three crucial mistakes that opened the door for all the crooks. The chief of which was the repeal of Glass-Steagall. Admittedly the Rep had the pressure on but Greenspan was the one that was wrong on derivatives, but then when has any chairman of the fed had America’s best interests at heart. Bush is not without blame but “ultimately, however, the big bang – the wall torn down between brokers and banks – happened on Clinton’s watch.”

    Glad to see the Market “Bounce” back from last weeks fiasco. I am having a hard time believing it was due to a “typo” or “fat finger” OOPs. Too Con-Venient of an excuse.

    • I pay for food, clothing / skin lotion, minor cuts and scrapes are covered by bandaids which I pay for, and minor illness is covered by OTC medicines which I purchase … . Nyquil’s really good for that, but half the time I don’t know if it’s a placebo. But I also rarely get sick cause I watch what I eat, wash my hands, and exercise.

    Re: Auto Insurance vs Health Insurance.

    Good analogy but if I can’t afford buying a car, insurance & maintenance repairs…there’s always Public Transportation (bus, rail, subway, etc).

    What we needed included in Health Care Reform was the Public Option! Subsidizing Insurance Companies will only delay the deterioration of American Health System that Federal $$ can even begin to repair and build new Hospitals, Clinics. Also provide $$$ for students wanting to become doctors, nurses, techs, etc.

    Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, Kaiser, many Blue Cross non profit- no subsidy losing a fortune. Mayo clinic just dropped out of Medicare in Arizona. The US doesn’t print enough money to cover all our medical costs. 20% of all medical fees are for defensive medicine. Obama was very careful not to include tort reform because he got millions from lawyer groups.

    Interesting how the CBO put a bill focused solely on tort reform at only saving 65 billion…
