Here’s my Congressman – MY Congressman – Mike Capuano, yelling at creepy bankers. It gets really interesting at about 1:50.
I love the part where he’s like “so, you come to us on your bicycle after buyin’ girl scout cookies and helpin’ Mother Theresa, and you’re like ‘oh we’re sorry, we won’t do it again…’ Thing is, there’s guys in my district who robbed your banks who are now sitting in jail sayin’ the same thing ‘oh, we’re sorry, we won’t do it again…’ ” Also, I like how he’s supposed to use his five minutes for a question, but instead he basically just uses his congressionally appointed time to call out these schmucks for what they really are.
Most of the time, you look at the people representing you in Congress and you feel nothing but mild nausea. Yesterday, I felt really proud.
