It's the same crap they have always done. I mean, most of these banks went from insolvency to big profits just one year after the bust. You can't do that unless there's something wrong with the system. The worst is, they take most advantage of lower income folks.

I still can't believe the hedge fund guys are getting away with the capital gains tax rate instead of the regular income tax rate.

As long as Wall Street "owns" Washington... (both parties) nothing will change for the general populous.
There is a serious issue when a Billion plus dollars are spent to get into office that pays very little. The hidden perks must be huge. I know the insider trading congress had been doing was expose a year or two ago and they changed the rules even though they all denied they had an advantage. Funny part was as soon as the rules changed several long time Hill people announced their retirement and would not seek office when their term ended. :think:

Unfortunately for me, some of my favorite craft beers are only sold in a can and aren't always on the menu at my local growler shop.
