When I was 8 years old I might poke someone with a stick and say, "I am not touching you". I grew out of it.

Make no mistake, Congress is getting kick backs. Personally I hope the majority of these greedy scumbag banksters burn in Hell!

The fact that insider trading is still legal for congress members doesn't help either.

It wasn't. Many of them ran afoul of Sarbanes/Oxley. That was never rescinded but I guess since no one will enforce it, it's all the same.

Ah yes, Obama - the guy responsible for the aftermath of deregulated Wall Street trickle-down, and seeming to continue all the carefully-crafted good work of previous conservative administrations, now that banks have become too big to fail or jail.
An ongoing target of right-wing contempt is Democrat Alan Grayson. You all just can't stand stuff like this. Never a complaint about corporate socialism, but only that extended to the lower classes. Really quite amazing...
