Bankers love you

Published on

Check out this hilarious and too-truthful Huffington Post from Heather Booth, director of Americans for Financial Reform, the coalition of public interest groups working to enact real Wall Street reform, on this week’s Capitol Hill visit from the American Bankers’ Association. It will make you laugh, curse, and maybe vomit a little.

A taste:

Since bankers are shy, upon their arrival Republican minority leader John Boehner gave them some words of encouragement:

"Don’t let those little punk staffers take advantage of you and stand up for yourselves," Boehner said.

It was very polite of Boehner to give that warning, as there is a real
danger of bankers being taken advantage of by Congress. The bankers are
so innocent and pure, their virtue so unchallenged, it is easy for
Congressional staffers to walk right over them.
