    The FDIC is the only gov't regulatory department worth a damn and doing the job it is paid well to do, and that is entirely due to its honest and noble chairman, Sheila Bair.

     

    She is the last gov't holdout against corruption, as all the other regulatory heads have been severely compromised at least, or have totally sold out to Wall Street. Crooks to the very last man, but Ms. Bair stands tall as the "last man standing" in our gov't truly working to control business corruption.
