How Sen. Charles Schumer Caused a Bank Failure

You may have already seen this, but if you haven’t, you ought to.

Perhaps someone in the Democratic leadership could persuade the Senator to take a vacation (far, far away from any contact with the  media) while the situation with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac gets worked out.

New York Times reported that hedge fund managers have a new champion in their effort to keep legally dodging the taxes the rest of us pay: none other than New York Senator Charles Schumer. Now you know who is Schumer's friend and why he caused the bank run on Indymac. He truly support hedge fund and private equity because they truly support him.

"And do remember that there are many investment bankers located in New York, making them pretty influential constituents of Sen. Schumer."

"In a Sunday news conference, he said everything in his letter was already known to the public."
If it was already known to the public, what is the reason for his public letter? It is contradict to what he said previouly :"I just bring private message to the public. Do not kill the messanger." What a great liar from time to time!

I heard that Schumer is actually controlled by aliens (you can tell by his hair). But those aliens are also investment bankers, so basically it's the same thing.
