As if last week's bought and paid for by JPMorgan media circus in the Senate was not enough, in which Jamie Dimon played several bribed muppets like a fiddle, today we get part two. Momentarily, the Committee on Financial Services will pick up the baton where the Senate left off, and confirm to everyone that the people who lead this country, at least on paper, are some of the most incompetent, and outright clueless when it comes to financial matters. The same matters that have led America to the Second great depression, which has so far been prevented from wiping out 20% of the economy only courtesy of Bernanke's relentless money printing. Dimon's testimony, which is a replica of last week's, can be found here. In other news, Jamie Dimon is furious he never bribed Maxine Waters before. Now he will have to explain introductory math for absolute idiots. Karma is a bitch.
In addition to Jamie, who will headline the second session, today's witnesses will include Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Mary Schapiro; Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission Gary Gensler; Acting Chairman for Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Martin Gruenberg; Comptroller of the Currency Thomas Curry; and Federal Reserve Board of Governors General Counsel Scott Alvarez.
