Please, do watch this video of Wall Street stock brokers --many of whom still have jobs largely because the Federal Government bailed out the financial services industry to the tune of $700 billion-- booing the Obama Administration for planning to spend a few billion more helping middle class Americans stay in their homes:

I had almost forgotten how despicable these Wall Street types can be.

i worked for the now-defunct bear stearns on the options trading floor for 7 years, i now work for a broker-dealer. wall street has ABSOLUTELY NO BUSINESS TELLING ANYONE ON THE ETHICS OF SPENDING MONEY. wall street is a PRIME example of how we got in this mess; greed, predatory lending, greed, bending rules, greed, finding loop holes, greed, and last but certainly NOT least, how to screw people over (we actually taped an options trader screaming at his desk clerk "it's our job to screw them over".) almost everyday, i run into another financial advisor either trying to duck a rule (up to an including faxing altered documents), looking for us to "cut me a break", or pushing an envelope trying to get more money from us or his/her clients.

It's called Piss down Your Back And Tell You It's Raining Economics You see capital belongs in the hands of the capitalists.

The poor and middle class exist only to ensure the capitalists don't have to worry about cooking and cleaning or picking up refuse. And need to remain sight and sound unseen.
