"We will be unseating Barney Frank come November. With Scott Brown winning Barney's district over a democrat, it tells a lot about what probably will happen in November. People in Massachusetts are fed up with our politicians representing us…"
"I was right in the middle of the market reactions (I took my losses as well) and I hope the new law offers something positive. I am not a fan of either Frank or Dodd, so I have my doubts.
I wish they would pass smaller, more discreet bills so it…"
"There are a lot of stop gaps put into place in the bill that will not allow to happen what happened previously with the collapse of the stock market and people losing many thousands of dollars. It should not have happened but because of…"
"Thanks for the welcome , Samantha....I had hoped to offer some sensible thoughts and the admission I do not know what is in the bill even though I pay a lot of attention to the financial markets as well as politics. As you have heard , It is better…"
"Kevin............I already explained that in my previous comments. My guess is that you are a liberal Democrat. You never backed Senator Brown and you've got nothing better to do than come on here and try to damage the Senator. No cupey doll…"
"This is not a perfect world nor will it ever be no matter which party is in power. Senator Brown dissected the bill and found enough good in it to vote a yes. I am not "gushing" over him. I merely understand his reasoning and agree with…"
"I agree with you 100%. You have been paying close attention to what's going on in the government at this time. The American people have been sold down the river. The country is, I believe, at this time in a pre-revolutionary state-of-mind and…"
"P.S. Senator Scott Brown is no kool-aid drinker nor am I. He's his own man, does his homework and then, and only then, does he cast his vote. In my opinion, he is one of the finest men you'll ever meet personally and is a savvy and shrewd…"
"Even if the Republicans vote no, the Democrats are in control and will ram it through. Senator Brown found some very good things in the bill and, in my opinion, used good judgment in voting. Nothing in life is perfect, least of all the legislation…"
"So, let's change it come election day. Smaller government and back in control. I've owned and operated two successful bussinesses in my life and am now retired. I know how hard you're working. Been there and done that. Good luck and…"
"You forget whose running the show in Washington these days. The Demorcrats know they will be losing control after election time, so they are pushing through as much legislation as they can, as fast as they can. Unfortunately, the Republicans only…"
I was right in the middle of the market reactions (I took my losses as well) and I hope the new law offers something positive. I am not a fan of either Frank or Dodd, so I have my doubts.
I wish they would pass smaller, more discreet bills so it would be easier to know what is in them. Best to you. Here is hoping for a stronger future for the country. Prayers for Scott' s wisdom and guidance.
Thanks for the welcome , Samantha....I had hoped to offer some sensible thoughts and the admission I do not know what is in the bill even though I pay a lot of attention to the financial markets as well as politics. As you have heard , It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness. I think we should ease up on the name calling especially when we really have limited understanding of the topic.
Hopefully we will move the ball forward and get the government back to encouraging employers , get our markets moving and restore confidence. Best to you. I hope Scott will summarize what was in the bill that he liked and what he thought were the biggest drawbacks. I am just not able to read 2000 pages of lawyer-ese.
