The Clintons changed much when they got into the WH. Many of the agencies were revamped. The EPA exploded with money when they got in power - Carol Browner socialist was administrator. I wonder when the imminent domain was changed and who was behind it - didn’t check. Eugene Ludwig restructured the whole economy system to include the CRA regs, and remove the Glass Steagal Act. The bankers were happy especially international microfinance. They also poured money into the EPA etc. Carter did the housing and education earlier. Obama was left with free healthcare, cap and trade, and the final touches to banking regulations. It appears they had a total change plan.
I fear some of our representatives are signing stuff they haven’t read - what’s new - and others know exactly what’s going on and relish signing on...
Lots of information here - scroll to the bottom and see who signed on to give him the Congressional Medal -
