from the article:

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), a long-serving representative who used her position to help OneUnited Bank – a bank in which she held stock – get federal funds. It was her fourth appearance on the list. Then there’s Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), who claimed he couldn’t pay child support but still managed to loan his campaign $35,000."

Just a few minutes ago on CNN they reported that the supercommittee that promised access to the public for their meetings, are now saying that they would not get anything done if that were so. But, they are meeting with special interests, lobbyists, in their meetings. So we are out, lobbyists are in, does that give you an indication of why we are fed up?

Sounds like the list would be so much easier if we list who is NOT corrupt!

Oh, David Vetter. Were you about to allow more BP-Gulf of Mexico accidents happen.

These people disgust me.

Why not mention of the broader government? Mainly the whole of the administration, with their green scams, a lawless Dept. of Justice, corrupt Dodd-Frank legislation, IPAB, and unlimited unionists access to the West Wing. Or is this just only about selective corruption when it fits the narrative?

I think starting with a definable list of corrupt politicians and their cronies on Wall Street makes more sense than broad attacks against a faceless enemy.
