Congress needs to take action now before greedy financiers diffuse the trail of bailout bucks. The US Senate and US House must act NOW!

Moreover, evidence is mounting that greedy bankers in the US and Britain have misused taxpayer funded bailout bucks to pad their own compensation packages. In this winter of discontent, such continuing greed and immorality can not stand.
