Putting politics and party ahead of Country, Republican in the Senate blocks bank reforms.

GOP, which side are you ? Wall Street, banks or the middle class?

One democrat blue dog joined in. Who?

“The Senate, in a 57-41 vote, failed to get the 60 supporters needed to proceed on the regulatory overhaul. One Democrat, Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska, joined with the Republicans.”

This is another like “health care  debate”.

GOP have no shame.

We all know why our blue dog joined the GOP’s twisted platform. Who contributed to his campaign?

I am getting tired of republicans and some blue dogs double standards when it comes to the middle class. I am tired of the crying to have their country back, when at the same time destroying the same country they claim to love.

President Obama send out a harsh statement:
The White House

Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release April 26, 2010
Statement by the President on Financial Reform
“I am deeply disappointed that Senate Republicans voted in a block against allowing a public debate on Wall Street reform to begin. Some of these Senators may believe that this obstruction is a good political strategy, and others may see delay as an opportunity to take this debate behind closed doors, where financial industry lobbyists can water down reform or kill it altogether. But the American people can’t afford that. A lack of consumer protections and a lack of accountability on Wall Street nearly brought our economy to its knees, and helped cause the pain that has left millions of Americans without jobs and without homes. The reform that both parties have been working on for a year would prevent a crisis like this from happening again, and I urge the Senate to get back to work and put the interests of the country ahead of party.”


President Obama on health care

We’ve seen years — decades — where Washington just puts off dealing with our toughest challenges because it’s too hard, because we don’t know how the politics works.  And the will and the capacity to act, to do serious things in this country, starts just getting sucked away.  Just gets sacked by partisanship and political gamesmanship and debates about who’s up and who’s down, and how does this play politically — instead of asking what’s right and what’s wrong.  And we’ve seen terrible consequences — not just these last two years of turmoil, but a decade of struggle for middle class families.

We can’t accept the status quo.  We can’t accept the same old-same old.  I won’t accept it… Not when it comes to how we manage taxpayer dollars.  Not when it comes to how our health care system works.  Not when it comes to meeting the difficult challenges that we face…Now is the time.  Now is the moment.  Now is the time for us to leave for the next generation and generations to come a stronger and more prosperous country.  We are not backing down.  We are not quitting, St. Charles.  And we are going to get this done.”
