Part 2

From Ring of Fire and GoLeftTV, Robert Kennedy Jr. and Matt Taibbi on the bank bailout mess and the bipartisan blame for deregulation that led to the financial meltdown:

The stimulus packages and bailouts that the government has been a little too willing to hand over to our financial industries have not only given these giants more cash in their pockets, but they've also given these companies unprecedented power over our federal government. No other industry has been able to show up in Washington and get a blank check with no oversight, which really shows just who is in charge in our nation's capitol. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. of Air America's Ring of Fire talks about this shift in power with Rolling Stone political correspondent Matt Taibbi.
