    Both the fat cat players and the government are to blame for the financial crisis, and we need to rein in corruption and fraud in both.

    The "government" blame actually falls squarely on the capture of regulatory and other necessary governing mechanisms by the fat cat corporate players.

    Government itself is not the/a problem here, the corruption of it by the corporate players is.

      Bob links to New Deal Democrat's diary on a New WPA. The real issue is that so few Democrats are willing to look hard at how to make our government better and unleash it from the corporations. Leaving the few who criticize, Libertarian economists. I don't like the situation either but that is what we got.
