Don't we get it boys and girls, It's the Congress, man and women we keep putting back in office that is the route of the problem. Stop re-electing them!!!!! Why is there no march on Washington to demand that the people we have elected to represent us either do their jobs or go home!!!!! They are the ones that knew this was going on and did nothing to stop it and now they are all showing us how outraged they. And we just keep voting them back in office.

I guess the bottom line is, you can't write laws requiring integrity.

I have three suggestions:
Let them go bankrupt (deposit insurance will protect depositors)
Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. (this goes for board members as well, not just CEOs)
Make sure the press holds them up for public ridicule and disgrace.

I prefer a couple of high visibility, high quality executions of corporate executives and politicians. Maybe they'll get the hint

There is no accountability when the entire system is corrupt.
