I don't see any reason why [banks] should be paying a special tax. ... I don't see the rationale for it. ... Look at the damage Fannie and Freddie caused, and they were run by the Congress. Should they have a special tax on congressmen because they let this thing happen to Freddie and Fannie? I don't think so.

Hey, Chuck, good to see you up and running. How are you feeling? (Sorry about the "thread drift")

Gotta agree about that. Does the special tax apply to the private Congressional Bank, too, which has , so I've heard, quite a few unpaid loans on it's books. Lotta banks up in Wilmington not happy with the VEEP either - he had a history of not paying utilities and loans. Got that from a former head teller from up there.
