Good video. I like this guy. I think a congressman has to enjoy his job and have a little humanity. He goes after the Lawyer for the FED like he enjoys it. He hits the right points. He stays after the guy.

He also has a good video about his bill "War is making you poor".

That was a great bill. Proved a good point about how ridiculous the war spending is. One of the reasons I like Grayson so much is his legislation. He authors a lot of legit bills. They never get passed, but he's one of the few that aren't corrupt. In his last term he had 8 bills on campaign finance reform.

Grayson talks down to these feds the way he does because he knows for a fact that they are running the biggest fraud in American history. Not much to be done when you're sounding the alarm and no one wants to listen. Or they purposefully ignore you. You'd think Wall Street fraud would be flooding the news... but it's not. They just have talking heads saying "what is OWS protesting for?"

Grayson's plan for the federal reserve's policies is that they should die quickly.

Yeah, he might be one of the few that is not corrupt and he is from a corrupt state as far as I know. Florida always had these Time Share Condo Rip-offs and over building, new building bubbles.

But seems to me that Every COngressman has the power to Investigate, demand Breifings from Federal Agencies, Demand Reports, Demand to know the Procedures & Policies, Demand more info about their managment of specific companies... demand more info on the fraud they have found, how they look for fraud ... how they monitor, track and gather data on the companies in their area of regulation.

Congressmen can raise a stink and demand Investigations for prosecution. And most of the power is in the hands of federal Regulators. But I will say ... from what I see we protect Industry more than we Regulate or Investigate or charge. It is like Regulators have their hands tied. This I don't understand - Except all Federal offices have a Legal Office and Lawyers Above them in Higher Offices.

Probably the Federal Lawyers have to become Targets in OWS.

Everything runs up a Chain of Command to the Executive Office. But you have a Banker Cartel Conspiring with a Lawyer Cartel - within the Federal Government - Making all the rules and holding all the Power.

Not sure how to strategize. get the media to print Legal Rules forced on government Regulators????

It's always good to see grayson. I can't wait to see what he will do.

[-] -1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

it's too bad he didn't get on the Financial Services committee again .

[-] 1 points by NVPHIL (667) 1 year ago

Yeah. But at least he is on n africa mideast foreign affairs committee. Along with energy and enviroment.

[-] -1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

True. But I loved all the C-Span videos on youtube grilling the banks. I was hoping for more. Hopefully he'll be grilling some war profiteers on the foreign affairs committee.

[-] 1 points by NVPHIL (667) 1 year ago

That is probably why he is not on the financial services committee. The good/bad thing is the corruption is widespread enough that he can still do a lot where he is.
