Connecticut Post – It was with amusement that I read that freshman U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, D-4, will now be a member of the House Financial Services Committee. Why? Because of his expertise? Does anyone realize that he was trained and made millions of dollars at Goldman Sachs? Yes, one of the firms that is responsible for the mess this country is in with exotic investments and subprime mortgages and plenty of greed!
We will never learn and the taxpayers will get fleeced again. Himes can work closely with Rep. Barney Frank and Sens. Christopher J. Dodd and Charles Schumer and others who managed to create quite a mess with a lack of oversight on subprime mortgages that were originated and sold in pieces on Wall Street.
