    It is an axiom in politics that a taxpayer funded bureaucracy will ALWAYS say: "smaller budgets will make their work more difficult". The unstated purpose of a bureaucracy is to get bigger and get more funding. The dirty little secret is that there are hundreds of administration lawyers going through the GOP majority's budget and feeding alleged "victims" of budget cuts to Soros and other left wing blog sites.

    The increase in the trades in the derivatives markets alone, since the meltdown, warrant at least a marginal increase.

    I say cut the funding of the entire government to a level unseen in history.

    Less money spent on Wall Street, like that was the problem for the government, banks, and Wall Street breaking the law.

    Want to stop the criminals, catch them and throw them in Jail, we should start by at least throwing out every politician not screaming for investigations into the financial meltdown.

    I bet when you get to the truth of the story, its nothing like whats posted.

    The way campaigns are financed, that won't happen. Thats why I'm an advocate for public financing. The way it is now, pols have to prostitute themselves to corps for donations from the day they take office.

    I always wondered what caliber of people Bush II had in his Labor Dept., if anyone at all. I would think they'd just put a "closed" sign in the window.

    You mean the whole of the Republican party? Who is fighting every attempt at investigation of the meltdown.
