Ratigan To Barney Frank: The Financial Lobby Owns Your Committee (Must See)

From the archives, one of the greatest moments in truth and cable TV.

Infographic and more details inside from the Sunlight Foundation.


Video - Barney Frank With Dylan Ratigan - Oct. 14, 2009 - Runs 1 Minute

From the Sunlight Foundation

One year after the biggest economic collapse since the Great Depression, Congress is still debating new regulations to protect consumers and prevent risk-taking in the financial sector.  The House Committee on Financial Services is currently undertaking the important first step of writing, amending and voting on some of the pieces of the long-proposed financial regulatory reform.  While debating these issues top committee members have been the recipients of disproportionate campaign contributions from the very industry that they are tasked with regulating.

Unfortunately this is how politics has always worked, you don't have to own them all... Just the important ones that can directly affect you. And if those names change, so do the checks...

The majority is mocked by the elected, but they drop to their knees fast for a big check writer, they always take the front seat. Hence the minority rule the majority, they call that democracy...

Hell, I think they own them all, or at least most of them. the important powerful ones are on their knees to get their check and the new less powerful bend even lower hoping to be noticed and recieve some scraps from whats left of the middle class. Thats the real trickle down theory. I listened to a Senator refer to us as the great unwashed during the health debate on CSPAN. The elites have no respect for the American Majority. They and their benefactors are parasites and they don't want to listen to us or respect us or do anything for us if they can't get paid for it. They just want us to live on less and less so they can have more and more. It's been the American way for a long time.

Goldman employees will be shopping at Tiffany & CO, purchasing Mercedes with the red bow, hanging out at Aspen over the holidays.

All thanks to the taxpayers.

How ironic the very people who were instrumental in creating our present economic crisis...

The very same GS who Taxpayers were forced to Bailout thanks to Timmy & Paulson...

Will celebrate a very lavish holiday, thanks to their criminal bonuses, oh wait i mean discretionary compensation.

While many, many American families will not be able to afford to give their children anything.

God works in strange ways indeed.

Thanks, Ken.

M. Landrieu in the House (of Ill Repute): "I am not going to be defensive about asking for help in this situation. And it is not a 100-million dollar fix it's a 300-million dollar fix."

Glenn Beck: "Weh-eh-ell, I'm sorrreee. So we know you're hookin'. But you're just not cheap."

Mary Landrieu's Health Care Reform Vote Could Mean $100M for Her State
Healthcare: More corruption on the horizon?
On Saturday the ultimate in government corruption took place. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) accepted $300 million dollars for her state in return for vote on Healthcare. Landrieu, the 60th vote needed to get healthcare to debate, held the make or break final vote. Now more of the same could be in store for Democrats who are widening the gap and breaking away from leadership for the final vote on healthcare.

Very good Ken, always follow the "bribes", wether they are pork, or campaign contributions, or "charitable" contributions, etc.,they are the same.

Always follow the money...

This applies to all parties.

"The principal feature of American libtardism is sanctimoniousness. By loudly denouncing all bad things–war and hunger and date rape–liberals testify to their own terrific goodness. More important, they promote themselves to membership in a self-selecting elite of those who care deeply about such things... It's a kind of natural aristocracy, and the wonderful thing about this aristocracy is that you don't have to be brave, smart, strong, or even lucky to join it, you just have to be libtard."
