Republican Corruption Contributed, Too

People talk about how the conservatives brought us deregulation, which led to the financial crisis. But there was something else the conservatives brought us that I think is just as responsible: corruption, crony capitalism and the predator state. Why isn’t anyone making the connection?
And why isn’t anyone investigating and prosecuting, holding the corrupt accountable? This is the main area where I feel that Obama has let us down, the return to rule of law. It isn’t happening.
