Lets don't forget that it was the Republicans who are in the pockets of the big bankers that authored the laws that allowed Wall St to legally steal from the American people!
It is not about Progessives vs Extreme Right but corruption vs the tax payer. Both parties are dirty and to single out one is ignoring the facts.
I've cut and pasted this from a post I made a while back on RTF...
Clinton signed into law the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, which deregulated much of the financial industry, that Republicans, and in particular Senate Banking Committee Chairman Phil Gramm and Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan, were the main proponents of deregulation. Republicans were the authors of that Act and the 2000 Commodity Futures Modernization Act that exempted over-the-counter derivatives like credit-default swaps from regulation by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Credit-default swaps took down AIG. So laying all the blame solely on Democrats is really not fair or accurate.
