32. Unfrotunately, Congress needs the same people writing checks for
Campaign contributions that President Obama needs.

Even as they worry out loud, into the microphones of C Span, that Obama's policies might fail and leave us as destitute as some third world nation, they still act as though they are clueless about Glasss Steagall's existence. And its need to be re-instated.
