12. I start with Open Secrets then find info on the families and on business deals.
Right now I am checking out news stories on Pelosi's son Paul and big money from Countrywide. Also checking out recent Friday Night News Dump story from a few weeks ago on Biden's 2 sons and their ownership of a Hedge Fund (recent court case settled out of court). This story never reached DU.

Biden also has a long history of working for the interests of the credit card companies (major Delaware business interests). Most of the onerous credit card scams that are destroying individuals and families are Biden-backed legislation.

Voting for the Big Bank Bailout which put me on the massive debt hook was a Dem initiative and massive Dem vote--Pelosi was pressing for Republican votes so she would have cover when the bailout failed (if Dems thought it would succeed they would have not wanted any Republican votes).

The 700 giveaway was passed by Democrats in October , including Obama. McCain was vilified by them for attempting to block it.

Our problems are all generated by the nexus of corrupt politicians and big business and it is not a partisan issue-DeLay was self serving, so are many Dems. Huge numbers are multi millionaires

Incidentally, Ray La Hood from Illinois (Republican) as Obama's Secretary of Transportation will oversee big money to auto industry as well as road money--it doesn't matter whether Repub or Dem-crooked politicians will stick together so long as they can both make money.
