Mad at House Republicans yet?

Not mad yet? The first paragraph of James Stewart's Page One analysis in the NY Times today should do it:

The economy is still suffering from the worst financial crisis since the Depression, and widespread anger persists that financial institutions that caused it received bailouts of billions of taxpayer dollars and haven’t been held accountable for any wrongdoing. Yet the [Republican controlled] House Appropriations Committee has responded by starving the agency responsible for bringing financial wrongdoers to justice — while putting over $200 million that could otherwise have been spent on investigations and enforcement actions back into the pockets of Wall Street.

Ask the Three Mouseketeers — Tim Griffin, Rick Crawford and Steve Womack — about this first chance you get.
