    The Magic Circle - First Read - msnbc.com

    From NBC's Chuck Todd

    In the midst of the congressional outrage over bonuses and bailouts, many of the very firms who benefitted from TARP funds are still making political donations. And the politicians are still taking them.

    According to the latest F.E.C. data for February, several members of Congress who have been critical of the federal government’s bailout of U.S. companies have received campaign contributions just in the last six weeks – from the firms they bailed out.





    great list of a-holes.....ALL OF THEM.

    Want to know if your Congressman is getting these contributions?
    Check out the FEC’s reports. Campaign Finance Reports and Data (main FEC "Campaign Reports and Data" page)
    and Campaign Finance Disclosure Data Search (FEC "Disclosure Data Search" - search by donor or politician).
    (Note: some companies have multiple PACs, like Bank of America.)

    What about whether or not your Congressman’s contributors have taken bailout money?

    another reason against the bailout.........it's just the continuation of the big ponzi scheme

    I just wonder if there is a list of Madoff contributions
