At least it's not another sex scandal. We've had enough of those to last a lifetime, although it won't be long before someone else gets found out......

I personally think the FBI needs to investigate barney frank and chris dodd. They probably used Fannie Mae as a way to hide what taxes they owe.

After the middle class task force makes sure the middle class is taxed properly they may increase their own salaries some more. People like Franks, Dodd, Dashcle. Biden, Obama, CLinton, most all politicians have never, I mean never ever, made a dollar from the fruits of their labor. They have been living off the fruits of our labor, taxes, so they might as well just friggen keep the GD money. If and when some get voted out they always come out MUCH richer than they went in. The crew that is in charge now is ramping up by executive order and lies, the govt. take over of US American business.

The uninspirational, read speeches, Obama and Biden gave yesterday were absolutely the most negative assesment and misrepresentation of this country, its economy, and its people.   Overall the economy grew last year by 1.8%.   A drop in GDP for a quarter is no measure of the strength of this country's economy.   If I hear again the comparison of now, with the depression again my head might explode!

The politicos in charge are hypocrites, megalomaniacs, greedy and want to create the illusion and crisis of confidence so they can nationalize everything under the guise of this recession. The bacon you smell emanating from Washington are the taxes they are taking right out of your pockets.   When has growing govt. by increasing taxes and its size ever fixed anything?

Jarasan, to even suggest that one party is more corrupt than the other, especially the Democrats, is absurd. Of course I am not defending tax evasion but, as NBey pointed out, there have been lots of scandals involving politicians over the years, some worse than others.

You mentioned a list of Democrats, so apparently you don't believe Tom Delay is one of the most corrupt people in Washington. I'll leave Bush & Cheney out of this discussion, since nobody feels lying to the American people for 8 years matters. And I guess that whole Troopergate scandal is something to shrug off because it involved a Republican.   Oh, yeah. Ted Stevens was soooooo honest. In fact, maybe we should all build him another house. Norm Coleman, who gets really cool free gifts like housing and lots of vacations is a Republican, so maybe you'll want to buy him a Pina Colada next time he visits the Bahamas. How about Representative Jerry Weller's sweet land deals in Nicaragua that he never bothered to report? What short memories we have, huh? Bill Frist ring a bell?

I don't have room to list all the rest.

JX you're right I didn't mean to imply only Demos are corrupt, they just get away with it more often than the Repubs. The media always insures that the repubs get beat down. It is absurd the bias, just like Frank giving $12,000,000 to a bank in his district.

"U.S. Rep. Barney Frank yesterday defended helping Boston’s OneUnited Bank land $12 million in federal funding, despite regulatory complaints its executives were getting “excessive” pay and even a Porshe for its CEO.

Frank, head of the powerful House Financial Services Committee, acknowledged that last fall he inserted into the government’s $700 billion Troubled Assets Relief Program bill specific language to help OneUnited, New England’s only black-owned bank."

Frank is a specialist at back door policy changes, he also had a boyfriend at Fannie Mae, and ran a gay prostitution ring out of his house in 1987 that would have buried any repub in a NY minute. And this jerky is still spending our tax dollars, you are literally paying this congressman's living, pension, and lifetime medical expenses. I want justice.

JX The repubs are irrelevant concerning the current state of affairs.   Where in the world is Tom Delay? When repubs get caught they get hammered by the media propagada machine. But when when you have worms the likes of Daschle and Geitner it is just an issue. I forgot to mention Rangel, he is another one who is still having ISSUES.

The reason the repubs in the house all voted against the spending bill along with 11 Demos is they know if this fails, which it will, the opposition won't be able to share blame. The repubic senators for their own good should vote against any more government expansionism or there will be heck to pay. Ask yourself this question:

How does the govt. make money?

Answer: The printing presses at the treasury, and recycling it out of your wallets and purses.

Fair tax if any tax! Don't tread on us you biaches!

Corruption on both sides seems to equally balance out and they usually don't rat on each other unless doing so serves a purpose. Many Republicans were discredited when Dems were jockying for control of all 3 branches. They bought control and the spotlight shines squarely on 'em now. Have popcorn, cola in hand am ready to see what shakes out. Blago was a warm up act, so enjoy the show.

Barney Frank likely knows so much dirt on so many other people that they dare not bring charges against him or he'd blow the lid off all of Washington. He'll get a free pass, mark my words.
