Right now, the Congressionally-created Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission (FCIC) is examining the role big banks played in the economic collapse.
And they are asking the public for questions to pose to the big bank CEOs.
These are the same Wall Street behemoths that have poured millions of dollars into campaign coffers to weaken or block regulation of their shady wheeling and dealing.
The Commission must ask the question: How did campaign contributions from Wall Street interests impact Congressional decision-making on financial regulation?
Wall Street bankers wouldn’ t dona

They are on Capitol Hill lobbying to gut or kill financial overhaul legislation currently making its way through Congress.

To get answers about the roots of the economic collapse, the FCIC must take an in-depth look at the role campaign contributions and lobbying played in the policymaking process.
