If people like Obama and likeminded individuals are the minority, who did Obama get elected by? The minority?

And he will easily get votes because there are more people now that will take than will make in the economy.
Minions? Really? My pool really needs a healthcare program.

Not that the Bush (and subsequently Obama) Tax Cuts had anything to do with the defiicit.

Ah, yes, the poor rich minority. Oh, and yes, the tax rate on the very rich increases from 35% to 39.6%. That's "unfairly high".

I can't even come up with a witty comback without being insulting, so I'll abstain.

Slavery? Child labor? Isolationism? Which one is it?

Define tyranny.

Solyndra? Really? Still?
“Loan guarantees aim to stimulate investment and commercialization of clean energy technologies to reduce our nation’s reliance on foreign sources of energy,” Bush’s energy secretary, Sam Bodman, announced in a press release on Oct. 4, 2007. The release said the Energy Department had received 143 pre-applications for the guarantees and narrowed the list down to 16 finalists — including Solyndra. Bodman said the action put “Americans one step closer to being able to use new and novel sources of energy on a mass scale to reduce emissions and allow for vigorous economic growth and increased energy security.”

Bush’s Energy Department apparently adjusted its regulations to make sure that Solyndra would be eligible for the guarantees. It hadn’t originally contemplated including the photovoltaic-panel manufacturing that Solyndra did but changed the regulation before it was finalized. The only project that benefited was Solyndra’s.

The guarantee program for these alternative energy companies, in turn, was created as part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 — sponsored by Rep. Joe Barton (R-Tex.), who has been a leader in the congressional probe of Solyndra’s ties to the Obama administration.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) was a major backer of the loan program, and is now railing against it. Rep. David Dreier (R-Calif.) supported the program’s creation, and is now trying to gut it. Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) was a major supporter of the program, and now believes the very idea behind the program is offensive.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) seems desperate to make this story a “scandal,” but he both helped create the loan program and tried to get funding through it for some of his constituents. http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/pol...nity032460.php

Quit trying to make it out something that it's not.

The Federal Reserve is expending into healthcare? That's news to me.
