Did this Republican just let the cat out of the bag?

"Spencer Bachus, the incoming G.O.P. chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, told The Birmingham News that “in Washington, the view is that the banks are to be regulated, and my view is that Washington and the regulators are there to serve the banks.”

    He misspoke. He meant to say "service the bankers".

    The GOP will keep us proud, free, rugged slaves to the finance sector until the whole nation crumbles to anarchy and Red China comes in to pick up the pieces.

  • I'm not sure you understood the sarcastic nature of my question, I'm aware tax cuts do absolutely nothing for the economy.

    I'm sure they also appreciate the slush fund you setup for them(not to mention the cabinet positions). Something about glass houses comes to mind.

    Yay, another Paul Krugman piece. It reads the same as the others. "I'm Paul Krugman and I'm right, the GOP is wrong, the GOP is bad because they want you to look at this but I'm telling you to look at this instead, blah blah blah".

    I think both sides are in bed with the banks. I don't trust either of them any more.

    Democrats must be "dog" people:

    “So a lot of times, I walk Bo at night, and that’s fun,” Obama said.”Sometimes I run around with Bo, although I have to -- sometimes I have to scoop up his poop.”

    One more mess for Obama: cleaning up after the dog

    That the government is to serve the governed -- banks included -- is the view of free people (you know, those "blessed with self-government").

    It is the Illiberals like yourself, who try to make government redistribute other people's wealth towards yourself ("for the greater good") and otherwise oppress others...
