Liberals still think FDR's policies lifted the nation out of the depression.

Hi erik.. the reason I believe that is because the data supports it.

BuffTrev1, if the data you are talking about is the start of WWII, we agree.

When so called conservatives abandon sound fiscal responsibility and acquiesce to liberal spending philosophies then we suffer. When GWB was elected and there was a Republican majority, the increased spending for pet projects and rewarding of supporters in their home states while simultaneously voting in tax cuts significantly ramped up the federal deficit. Bailout of the banks in his term threw further debt on the American people. Bailout of the Savings and Loans some 20 years earlier with Republican control threw more burden on the taxpayers.

You expect Democrats to be liberal in tax and spend philosophies. When fiscal conservatives abandon their principles then we really start going down the slippery slope rapidly.

Make sure that fiscal conservatives stay conservative.

Because of a complicit media, Liberals never have to publicly answer that question.

"You expect Democrats to be liberal in tax and spend philosophies." The question has to be asked, what ideology is more fiscally responsible, tax and spend democrats or borrow and spend republicans?

It is clear the right does not see how destructive they are. They are only interested in playing the blame game.

Liberal lending policies expanded under Clinton that led to the housing market crash of 2007 and ultimately the economic crisis. But it is so much easier to just blame Bush.

Of course neither the letter writer or anyone else for matter cites specific 'liberal' policy that has been utterly destructive.

"Liberal lending policies expanded under Clinton" heavily favored by right wingers in Congress. The right's finger prints are all over that policy.

Neither. The answer is.....don't borrow, don't increase taxes, and reduce spending.

Are talki9jng about the oringinal act of 1977 or all the revisions that happen afterwards. My guess you believe that it is the sole cause of the financial crisis that befell us in 2008 and that would be wrong.

Nice try but it is not a only 'liberal' policy. Again the right's fingerprints are all over it also.

Well bobbie the stupid you do know that the Act was revised several more times after President Carter signed it into law, don't you? Under both Bushes and Clinton and Reagan. So stupid Bobbie the right's fingerprints are all over that Act.

I don't have to Bobbie you already give a revision of what Maddow says.

It still doesn't change the facts that the Act you posted as failed liberal policy has been revised many times under previous Presidents, the right wing put their fingerprints all over it like they do everything else in DC.

Bobbie you can't face facts. It was revised under Reagan, Bush I and Bush II as well as Clinton who had the backing of a republican Congress. Republican revisions, right wing revisions. You don't want th truth, you can't handle the truth.
