Anyone who cannot decide the merits of supporting the Republican Party should listen to this audiobook before deciding!
While this book is in no way an endorsement of the Democrats, this book exposes the unseemly behavior of a couple of Tea Party Republicans: Eric Cantor and Paul Ryan. These two have a special relationship with hedge funds. That disturbing relationship needs to be explored in the light of misplaced Tea Party moral demands. Other crucial reasons for not supporting the Republican Party are contained in this book. As for Cantor and Ryan, many politicians of both parties get money from hedge funds, but this relationship is particularly nasty.
For a little background, Andrew Ross Sorkin had an interesting discussion with Larry Kudlow concerning Jamie Dimon. The background of the banks in the mix is cloudy, but certainly some bankers cannot contain their desire to roll the easy-money dice once again, to the peril of the middle class. The original Ponzi housing scheme of the past decade had elements of conspiracy and premeditation, with both political parties being highly involved in the scheme.
