Big time false. There are no liberals besides maybe Kuchinich in congress and they did not have complete, filibuster-proof control.

There are no liberals in congress? You're probably right if you mean there's a bunch of social engineers (on both sides) in there.

As in corporatist fascists yes, the GOP is completely owned by them and many on the left have sold out as well.

With those names you add the Republicans as owned by the military-industrial complex - it's bipartisan.

More likely it was a closed-door deal cut with Big Pharma in getting their support for Obamacare. Look for the FDA to completely flip-flop and grant licensure/patents to Big Pharma to produce/distribute medical marijuana in the not too distant future.

How the heck do you think Feinstien's husband got his contracts?

Newsflash: The far left is owned by the military-industrial complex as well. No one is protesting warmonger-in-chief Obama. Soros is profiting greatly from those TSA scanners.

Yet another reason to vote for Ron Paul!
