America has been destroyed by politicians. They succumb to whatever money comes their way, Republican or Democrat, it really makes no difference.
Banks simply played in the field they paid for.
By the way, most Republicans were not born in bred into trust funds. That's just hyping up the argument and obfuscating the issues. The sooner we understand it is government vs the citizens, and begin cleaning house of all the representatives on state and federal levels who suck up to money and not solve day to day problems, we are on a down hill slide.
