    Before Obama sold to the Chinese, Bush did. And before him Clinton did and before him Bush and Reagan. Clinton gave us a couple of years with some balance in revenues and expenditures.

They have been obstructing everything since. Semsen is lucky to live in New York where the state does some minor regulation.

And the Republican party collectively would do nothing to change that. What souls they may have left are for sale or were long ago SOLD.
