View Full Version : Democrats Hold Financial Advantage Over GOP



Satanicus

WASHINGTON Federal campaign reports show that Democratic Party committees maintained a solid cash on hand advantage over their Republican counterparts as they entered the final three months before the election.

The Republican National Committee raised only $5.5 million in July, compared to $11.6 million by the Democrats. The Democrat Party reported $10.8 million in the bank and $3.5 million in debts; Republicans showed $5.3 million in the banks and $2.2 million in debts.

It's not hard when companies that are bailed out by a government (aka taxpayers) then go ahead and use that money to make campaign contribution to the party which runs that government.

They got the money from Bush through the TARP program , he demanded there were no strings attached so the banks could hold the money.

But now they donate to the DNC ?

Thats some theory there.

Um, they DO OVERWHELMINGLY support the Democrats. Large corporations and the super rich have for quite some time. It is the successful small businessman and individuals only capable of smaller donations that have typically supported the GOP for quite a while now. The GOP has more doners, but the amount per doner is decidedly in favor of the Democrats.

What I don't understand is why you Liberals who complained all the time (rightfully) about Greenspan helping to expand the Housing Bubble which burst and ruined this country suddenly have nothing to say when our Government is creating the Money Bubble through out of control spending. When this bubble bursts, it's Game Over. Are you Liberal Democrats suddenly ok with budget deficits as long as your man is behind the wheel instead of an idiot Republican driving the bus?

If you actually read the post, you'd know what I was and wasn't implying. I said, clearly, that you liberal Democrats had a problem when Bush ran massive deficits (REAL Conservatives and Libertarians had the same problem) but you're suddenly silent about the size of Government spending and actually encourage it now that your man is in office.

Have you ever taken Econ 101? Government spending naturally occurs during a Recession because the Government blows Keynes every chance it gets. And I seem to remember the slogan pushed by you people that "When Clinton left, we had a surplus. Bush ran us into a deficit". Do you people not understand that deficits naturally occur when the Government spends more to "get us out of Recession"? You know, like the Recession that happened after 9/11? Oops, just shot a hole in your theory and that sucks.

If Government spending was the cure to ending economic sluggishness, why did Henry Morngenthau say this in 1939:

"We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work. And I have just one interest, and if I am wrong ... somebody else can have my job. I want to see this country prosperous. I want to see people get a job. I want to see people get enough to eat. We have never made good on our promises ... I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started ... And an enormous debt to boot!"

You want a clue , here ya go.

The US will sell around 11% in the IPO.

The GM stock will rise in the following months , more stock will be sold at a higher price by Canada and the USA , the GM stock will rise again , and the US will sell the rest of the stock.

GM will be saved , and the US will make a profit , and ... the GOP was against the entire thing.

You were stupid enough to give the Government an interest-free loan. If you received more back then you paid in, YOU GOT A WELFARE CHECK PAID FOR BY SOMEONE MORE PRODUCTIVE THAN YOU. This is how things work in America, thanks to your Progressive tax system.

Wilson pimped us out in '13 for the 16th Amendment. Glad to see some idiots still support that act of thievery. :rolleyes:

All income taxes on all Americans should be outlawed now and forever. We'd have to cut our budget by 40% to do it. Impossible, you say? Well, if we cut our budget by 40% we'd be back at the spending levels of that time YEARS AGO.....1997. Seem to remember our economy being pretty great in '97.

and you obviously don't understand what an IPO is. it's the intial public offering, meaning that only a seclect number of shares will be offered. you're delusional if you think that UAW and the US Gov are going to give up controling interests in the company, they wont. Also you've got a very optimistic view of what will happen with GM stock. people have to BUY GM products in order for them to have a positive growth which requires them to produce products that people want. Which they are NOT doing. GM is destined to fail. it may take 10-20 years but they will fail if they don't make products that people want.

It is one of many accepted arguments in economics that government spending is one way to deal with a recession. However, it can also be argued that the government spending so far has not had the desired effect. It could be that the spending was not targeted that well by a democratic congress and an inexperienced man in the Presidency. Robert Reich, yes ROBERT REICH, the Clinton man, the lefty financial Guru. the liberal ROBERT REICH, said on "This Week", that this is not a summer of recovery and said that he fears a double dip recession.

Can I what? Believe what a retarded little troll you are? No, I cannot.

I think you are one of the most mindlessly and needlessly aggressive dickheads I've ever encountered online.

Satanicus can you answer my original question please? Why do liberal Democrats who raised such Hell when Bush was spending out of control (Which he WAS) never seem to speak out against the spending Hell that Obama hath wrought?

It seems to me that liberals don't actually care about bankrupting our country and driving the bus into a ditch, as long as one of them is behind the wheel and not a big stinky Republican.

The bank bailout and stimulus were to keep the nation from the kind of collapse Bush and Paulson were talking about.

I don't agree on how BOTH programs were run.

But lets be clear , It was Bush who decided to bailout the big banks , and Bush who decided to start the bailout of the auto industry.

Those here who claim it was all Obama are wrong .... do we agree ?

No one here is claiming it was all Obama. What we are saying is that Obama took everything BAD that Bush did, and tripled it. He is taking everything GOOD that Bush did, and is ending it.

All the ca$h in the World can't stop what's coming November 2nd. Bank on that.

The sad thing is, when Conservatives turn this ship around and the country gets back on her feet, if Obama moves to the center....he'll get the credit. Just like what happened with Clinton. Say what you want about John Q. Public....we've got some dumb motherf*&kers in this country who believe everything they're told.

Excluding this site, naturally. ;)

I agree that the left will claim credit for what a conservative congress does and give it to Obama like they gave Clinton credit for what conservatives did during his administration - and how they wanna blame Bush for what the fucking idiot left did once they took over in 2006. :rolleyes:

Will that money be returned to the taxPAYERS or will the dems steal it as they have done in the past.

They will of course funnel that money into expanding government rather than paying down the debt that they have run up. Fucking hate career politicians. :mad:
