Bankster Scumbag Enabler Official
I caught a piece on Fox News about Connecticut US Senator Christopher Dodd. It is beyond me why this scumbag hasn't been hauled off in handcuffs to spend the rest of his life in prison. Just in a number of months he may have pocketed a million, or so, in bribes from those he's supposed to be regulating, while he (Dodd) is on the Banking Committee in the US Senate. Dodd proposes that a half a billion dollars of taxpayer money be spent on a brand new agency to regulate the finances in the US. The czar of this agency has no oversight, and the US President, the Congress, and Senate are unable to audit or control this agency which will operate behind closed doors in secret. "Mr. Sell-out", Chris Dodd should not be able to continue to harm America, Americans, and the American Economy. Voice your opinion asking for Dodd to serve jail time.

On His Way Out, Sen. Chris Dodd Gives Giant Middle Finger To The White House On Volcker
The FT is running the full report from DealReporter, the analyst firm that broke the story, and it includes this stunning revelation about Chris Dodd:
With the election of Republican Scott Brown to the Senate, the Democrats no longer have the necessary 60 votes to force through a Regulatory Reform package, and any bill will need at least some Republican support to pass. A Dodd staffer said the senator is likely to quietly drop or modify many of the recommendations in the Volcker rule to ensure Republican support for regulatory reform.
“Chris is retiring so he wants to end his career with an important regulatory reform bill and he wants to make the bill bipartisan,” the staffer said. “He is not going to risk bipartisan support to make the White House happy.”
This is ridiculous. There's no reason Dodd should prefer some milquetoast bipartisan deal over a White House-led bill with teeth.
The best interpretation is that Dodd is doing a favor to his friends -- friends who will find a way to load him up financially upon retirement.

Steal a couple of candy bars and end up in jail. Should a politician who has cost the world trillions of dollars, taking millions in bribes, making his organized crime corporate bankster friends rich, live like a king and get a cushy retirement?
