    That or at least enact a federal usury law. There are about 10 states with no limit on interest rates they can charge, and another 15 or so with rates around 15%.

    Of course, the conservatives will just say not to borrow money, regardless of whether it means your family gets to eat or not.

    They're tired of being patronized and taken for granted. Black unemployment is sky high - higher than under Bush - and Obama yammers about giving jobs poor Americans should be having to illegal aliens.

    Obama is a HUGE backstabber to the black community.

    Obamacare is nothing. A bandaid. Just because your propagandists have turned it into the latest hysteria event for the rabid Red State faithful means nothing. Thirty years of rewriting the tax code, deregulation and trade policies has flushed this country down the toilet. Why? For greed. Obamacare is just red meat to keep the idiots occupied while the greedy bastards empty the treasury.

They do what their corporate masters tell them to do.
    , like he didn't do that. Geez, you guys and rewriting history. Let me guess, you believe the GOP had a big hand in the creation and passing of Obamacare.

    But Obama is going it alone and doesn't need Congress. He's a smuck. Most Presidents once they don't need their own party anymore come to the center, work with the other side, and try to have a decent 2nd term.

    Obama had some notion he had a mandate but he has far from it. In fact he may get hammered in the midterms.

    Obama did the same thing he's always done: Blah, blah, blah. He's the modern day James Buchanan.
