Letter: It’s just as bad here
I was listening recently to Rep. Paul Ryan on NPR, saying he does not want America to be in the same situation as Europe.
Hello! We are in the same situation, all of it caused by unregulated banks and banksters who have used our money to pay themselves high salaries and make risky loans that were paying big interest rates on houses of cards. Their cronies in Congress and the Department of Justice will not prosecute them, but they should be jailed and made to pay restitution. A good read on all of this by Matt Taibbi, an investigative reporter who understands this mess.
And by the way, have you heard of Congress tying retirement benefits to the “chained CPI” ?
