http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/07/world/asia/jaime-china-currencies/index.html?iref=allsearch (CNN) -- Since China adopted a "managed float" of the renminbi (RMB) in 2005, the RMB has appreciated in real terms by over 20 per cent against the U.S. dollar. Still, politicians and economists in the U.S. say China is guilty of "currency manipulation" and say the RMB remains artificially undervalued. The U.S. Senate on Thursday voted to push a bill which will impose punitive tariffs on China for allegedly manipulating the RMB exchange rate to gain unfair trade advantage. U.S. President Barack Obama said China is manipulating its currency but expressed concerns about backing the Senate bill. China opposes the bill, warning that it "seriously violates rules of the World Trade Organization and obstructs China-U.S. trade ties." U.S. Republican House Speaker John Boehner does not support the bill either.

The real99 left out the word "war" I assume. Although the GOP members of Congress were inciting illegal acts by the Tea Party, I don't think it serves our purpose well. Buchanan has been predicting on TV there will be fighting between OWS and cops. Cops are 99%er's also. Fighting among ourselves isn't a great idea.

Even the democrats did not support it, they only needed 2 defections to kill it and it made the republicans out to be the bad guys. Why not go after the 2 democrats, they are truly the ones that killed it.
