McCain: Wall Street Woes Point to Regulation Need.Once again, no shit, Sherlock. So let's dig deeper, Watson.
In a brief interview, McCain was questioned about the economic woes under eight years of President Bush and six years of GOP control of Congress.Oh, you mean the REPUBLICAN government that has pretty much deregulated all the regulations put in place by earlier administrations, Houses, and Senate to AVOID ALL THIS?
"I think it's a failure of government and I think it's a failure of regulatory agencies," McCain told reporters.
But McCain has blame to spread:
"I would point out that the Democrats have been in control of Congress for the last two years — both houses, so I think there's plenty of blame to go around."Except for one problem. As mentioned in previous comments, while Bush has used his veto power sparingly (only twelve times, eleven of them SINCE Congress became Democrat controlled), the Republicans in Congress have filibustered AT LEAST 65 as of April 15, 2008. The reason, in other words, this Congress can't get anything done is because the Republicans won't allow anything to get done and the Democrats do not have enough of a majority (at least sixty votes) to override a filibuster or the threat of one. Oh, and that tally in the link DOESN'T count how many times the Republicans have THREATENED filibusters.
So, no, John McLet's-Distort-The-Facts. The reason Congress isn't getting anything done is because you Republicans WON'T ALLOW IT.
