Giving Obama The Credit He Deserves For Defending The 99%: "Over the past 12 months, Americans were subjected to, and learned about, the extremists in the Republican Party who have lurched so far to the right that Ronald Reagan would be considered a Liberal. After assessing the economic damage Republicans caused nearly every American throughout 2011, 99% of the population can be grateful that Democrats control the Senate and that President Obama is in the White House.

Although Democrats are not perfect, they served as a barrier to unbridled tax cuts for the rich and more importantly; more drastic cuts to programs that 99% of Americans depend on. The difference between Democratic ideology and Republican’s hard-right, unregulated free market capitalism and government privatization is stark and without Democrats, Americans’ economic situation would be far worse. The events in Wisconsin and Florida, with Republican assaults on public employees, unions, and voters are but a glimpse of what happens when the GOP controls the executive and both houses of a legislature...."

The Republicans are fully owned.  The Democrats only partially owned.

I'd rather go with the partially owned. Or Warren and Uncle Bernie. They're not owned that I know of.
