Why does Congress hate the American people so much?

You know you have to be worried when the people in congress who suck at coporate pig tit like starving babies call something the "Financial Data Protection Act".
We already know all about their ability to pass clever laws like Clear Skies, Healthy Forests, Patriot Act (One and Two!)..

As reported on this MSNBC page yesterday, this has already made it through the House Financial Services Committee and is headed right up our asses.

Imagine a law that goes BACK in time to when financial institutions were able to fuck around with our data and not let people know when it had been compromised.
And imagine this little stroke of genius: it would limit (credit) freezes to those who've already been a victim of ID theft. So much for the old "ounce of prevention" thing..

Those of us that live in states like CA, NY, ILL, etc.. are protected very well (all things considered), thanks to people in government in these instances that actually are not on their knees in front of the chairman of Citibank.
Leave it to the US congress, who is now even MORE full of lapdogs to do this. It's like a raised middle finger to every person that doesnt live off the fucking grid or whatever..

Read the whole article, then get your congressperson an email today. If you are not sure who that is (shame on you) then you can go to the house web page and look that person up. There are almost always a web form for sending them email.

Unbelievable. And you're right shame on us (present company excluded thank you very much) for being ignorant suckers to lovely sounding titles.

Sadly, my Congressman is Jim Ramstad, Republican-at-large. He does not give a WHOOOOP! about anything but the pig's tit and continues to live his comfy life at the edge of a beautiful lake in the most exclusive community we have in MN...

Those "states' rights" Republicans are at it again. "Hmmm, here's a state law that I don't like. Squisshh!" And they keep getting away with it.

"Imagine a law that goes BACK in time..." Sounds like the very definition of conservative.

that's why there are no real conservatives in charge anymore.
just regressives.
