Nancy Pelosi Blocked Credit Card Reform While Investing Millions in Exclusive Visa Stock Offering
related link: Big Government

"Former Speaker of the House–and current Minority Leader–Nancy Pelosi apparently bought $1 million to $5 million of Visa stock in one of the most sought-after and profitable initial public offerings (IPO) in American history, thwarted serious credit card reform for two years, and then watched her investment skyrocket 203%."

Did you see the 60 Minutes story? Holy cow, she and the other legislators were absolutely disgusting. It was gross just watching them.

I didn't. I'll probably just get the book.

She wasn't the only one by a long shot. Most on the 60 Minutes segment were Republicans, but that is an amusing photo of her.

That's the 60 Minutes segment, but the book is long on the Obama administration's cronyism (from the Washington Post):

"[T]he most disturbing revelations come from Schweizer’s investigation into the Obama Energy Department and its infamous “green energy” loan guarantee and grant programs, a program Schweizer calls “the greatest — and most expensive — example of crony capitalism in American history.” The scandal surrounding Solyndra — the now-bankrupt, Obama-connected solar power company that received a federally guaranteed loan of $573 million — is well known. But Solyndra, Schweizer says, is only the tip of the iceberg."

The hideously-disfigured plastic surgery disaster "Bela" Pelosi is a sick and twisted criminally-corrupt old hag who should fuck off straight to prison to rot for the rest of her miserable life.

Fucking fuck-faced freak.

Get a load of that sickening old leering goat Dingell, particularly the grotesquely distorted paws on his wretchedly broken-down carcass.
