I bet you guys didn't know the auto bailout was really Romney's idea
Good ol' Mitt, he comes up with all the good ideas after they happen. I can't wait to hear how he was responsible for the death of bin Laden.
Was that before or after Romney wrote that op-ed about how we should let Detroit fail?
Watching television is not an activity.
Wait, didn't Romney say the bailouts were a mistake?

The Return of Debtors' Prisons
Although the U.S. abolished debtors' prisons in the 1830s, more than a third of U.S. states allow the police to haul people in who don't pay all manner of debts, from bills for health care services to credit card and auto loans. In parts of Illinois, debt collectors commonly use publicly funded courts, sheriff's deputies, and country jails to pressure people who owe even small amounts to pay up, according to the AP.
Under the law, debtors aren't arrested for nonpayment, but rather for failing to respond to court hearings, pay legal fines, or otherwise showing "contempt of court" in connection with a creditor lawsuit. That loophole has lawmakers in the Illinois House of Representatives concerned enough to pass a bill in March that would make it illegal to send residents of the state to jail if they can't pay a debt. The measure awaits action in the senate.
"Creditors have been manipulating the court system to extract money from the unemployed, veterans, even seniors who rely solely on their benefits to get by each month," Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan said last month in a statement voicing support for the legislation. "Too many people have been thrown in jail simply because they're too poor to pay their debts. We cannot allow these illegal abuses to continue."
When the Washington Post OPED page has a problem with the GOP, you know things is bad.
Let’s just say it: The Republicans are the problem.
People think I have got the power cause I've got the monkeys. Nope. I've got the power because I'll let the monkeys loose...
