Some on here have beaten the drum constantly that the democratic congress is in charge of legislation ergo it is their fault that the government and the usa are in such terrible shape.

As this shows the President and the Republicans in Congress still have the power to block legislation supported by the Democratic congress. The F... are still in power....for awhile.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., canceled plans Wednesday for a vote on a bill to carve $25 billion in new auto industry loans out of the $700 billion Wall Street rescue fund. The Bush administration and congressional Republicans have rejected Democrats' plan to dip into that pot of money. REUTERS

Reid cancelled because he can not get enough dems and the liberal pubs to go along. Big surprise. You know how hard it is to get a 10% approval?

cz is totally and completely clueless. One day he harps on how the Dems. hold all the cards but don't do anything because they lack fortitude. The next day, it's stuff like the above. Which is it today, cz?

My post was meant for the intelligent people on the board that agree or disagree without parsing. The dems. have no clue what to do without pissing off their big union backers. If they are so right, then get the majority of dems to vote for it, let the pubs and or W veto it, and then further solidify their union support for generations. They know they cant even get their own party to go along, so they punt...which is better than a non binding resolution, I guess. Like I said, you need to try real hard to get a 10% approval rating. They show every day why.

This would be another stupid political game that would contribute in no real way to helping the problem. Not surprised you are a proponent of it.

When you stand for nothing you will do nothing. I guess all of the complaints about W not vetoing spending bills would have been political games too? You are just making excuses now that you can no longer blame the pubs.

I'm not making excuses. Submitting bills that are guaranteed to be vetoed is a stupid political game. Congress is avoiding that stupid game and you are slamming them for it. Are you really this dense?

So it's not important to stand up for getting out of iraq? No more bailouts? That is lame but you fall on swords well. This is the same party that passed 2 non-binding resolutions when they were powerless. Now they have the power and they won't do anything because they know they are going to have to face the consequences. It's all w's and the pubs fault won't work anymore and they know it. They need to stand up for something and they can't do it.

CZ with a lame-duck President a Congress filled with lame duck Republicans and a incoming President and new Congress persons of like mind.....why not just wait?

There have been some legislation passed in the last two years with which I agree.

The College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007 (H.R. 2669) will provide the single largest increase in college aid since the GI bill. And it will do so at no new cost to taxpayers, by cutting excess subsidies paid by the federal government to lenders in the student loan

The Senate Armed Services Committee unanimously passed the Dignified Treatment of Wounded Warriors Act on June 13. The bill includes revisions to close the gap from the time a service member is separated from the Armed Forces and the time VA benefits begin.

Democrats Passed First Minimum Wage Increase in a Decade (more money in circulation and .70 per hour is not going to fold any business...despite their yowls).

Democrats Passed Bill to Implement 9/11 Commission Recommendations. “The Senate overwhelmingly approved legislation yesterday to implement many of the remaining reforms suggested by the Sept. 11 commission, answering its three-year-old call for better emergency communications; more money for cities at high risk of terrorist attacks; and tighter security for air cargo, ports, chemical plants and rail systems (seems reasonable to follow the 9/11 suggestions and strengthen USA internal security).

Democrats Passed Ethics and Lobbying Reform Bill. “Senate Democrats and Republicans broke a difficult stalemate last night and approved 96 to 2 expansive legislation to curtail the influence of lobbyists, tighten congressional ethics rules and prevent the spouses of senators from lobbying senators and their staffs. (Hopefully it will do some good)

CZ there are more...increases for Vets....investigaation of Student Loan industry etc.
The people are pizzed at Congess because they have not come up with a quick fix to this economic recession. Look back at each recession and the public poll during that time.

Ok, I can see the point of waiting because of what you said but I don't think anything will change. Besides, if the problems are as urgent as they make them out, why wait another day?
