I am weary of indignant Congresspeople holding hearings where they “question” those involved in our economic problems. Congress is as much to blame as anyone. In fact, they probably deserve the most blame. They changed the regulations and rules of the money game. They allowed Wall Street to go berserk. They voted for two illegal wars that have consumed huge amounts of taxpayer money. I wish they would stop grandstanding and acting holier-than-thou. If they don’t like the way that the Wall Streeters have behaved then put some of them in jail, stop giving them more money, and shut the hell up.

From What Did the Banks Do With Your Cash? by Matthew Jaffe:

"We have a bunch of idiots on Wall Street that are kicking sand in the face of the American taxpayer," Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., recently said from the Senate floor.

"I'm mad," she said. "Everyone I work for is mad."
Congress is the problem. I’m mad at them. Congress has allowed Wall Street to kick sand in the face of the American taxpayer. Instead of reminding us of what we already know, Congress should stop the sand kicking. If they don’t have the power to do this, who the hell does?
