  3. Dennis Kucinich on the Democrats’ Bailout Betrayal

    By Chris Hedges

    08/10/08 “Truthdig” —  05/10/08  — The passing of the $850-billion bailout pulled the plug on the New Deal. The Great Society is now gasping for air, mortally wounded, coughing up blood. It will not recover. It was murdered by the Democratic Party.

    We are on our own. And don’t expect any help from Barack Obama and Joe Biden, who lobbied hard for the bill and voted for it. Ignore their rhetoric. Look coldly at the ballots they cast against us. We, as citizens, have only a handful of representatives left in Washington, most of whom were left sputtering in rage and frustration on the House floor. The sad irony is that some of them were Republican.

    “This was the largest single act of class warfare in the modern history of this country,” Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, who led the fight in the House against the bailout, told me by phone from Cleveland. “It is a direct attack on the American people’s ability to be able to stabilize their homes and their neighborhoods. This single vote will define the careers of everyone. We are back to taxation without representation, to markets that are openly rigged.”

    “We buried the New Deal,” he said of the vote. “Instead of Democrats going back to classic New Deal economics where we prime the pump of the economy and start money circulating among the population through saving homes, creating jobs and building a new infrastructure, our leaders chose to accelerate the wealth of the nation upwards. They did so in a way that was destructive of free-market principles. They ripped away all the familiar moorings. We are in an uncharted sea where the traditional roles of the political parties are being switched. The Democrats have unfortunately become so enamored and beholden to Wall Street that we are not functioning to defend the economic interest of the broad base of the American people. It was up to the Republicans to protect not just a so-called free market but the American taxpayer and attempt to block this. This is an outrage. This was democracy’s Black Friday.” . . . .

    Obama voted for the bailout because of fear of if it triggered a market collapse it could cost him the election, according to the article.  

  4. Maybe I’m setting a new level for self indulgence, self referencing, or narcissism, but at first I thought you were wishing me a happy birthday.  “Hmmm,” I thought, “How could anybody on DD know my birfday is tomorrow?  I never tell anyone about that. How could anyone know?”  Then the (is it inevitable?) disappointment, also known as reality.  “Ah! It’s Dennis’s birfday, not mine.  Awww.”  Today is just my 365th unbirthday in a row.
