24. The guys who took advantage of the law to loot federally insured deposits are still in charge...
...Take Ben Bernanke and Tim Geithner, spawn of Hank Paulson. Please. Goldman Sachs made billions by pushing AIG to bankruptcy.

Paulson is spawn of former Sen. Phil Gramm, R-Texas, who steamrolled the repeal of Glass Steagal. I call him the Meyer Lansky of the War Party.

Thank you, laughingliberal, for giving a damn!
