Pelosi Fires Back At '60 Minutes' Report On 'Soft Corruption'

(CNN) -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi fired back Sunday at a CBS News' "60 Minutes" report that highlighted several instances of what it suggested could be "soft corruption."

The show looked at the investments of various lawmakers -- including Pelosi, House Speaker John Boehner and Republican Rep. Spencer Bachus of Alabama -- who reportedly bought stocks around the same time legislation involving those investments was being discussed.

That is so F-ed up that all off our politicians have inside info that the public is unaware of for days & that they are able to capitalize of their info via Wall Street.

They make tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars within a few days while the rest of the working class has to work months or years to earn that kind of money.

Pelosi, Boehner and the rest of the corrupt politicians and are all liars and a disgrace to this country!

Why do you think that millionaires (and most of them already are before they get elected) would spend millions to get a job that pays $125,000 a year? It AIN'T for the "prestige" or the desire "to change things"....its for the untold riches that can be achieved in untold numerous ways. Insider tips on stocks, future land development projects, upcoming jobs and contracts, etc. All made LEGAL by ---you guessed it-- the milllionaires who benefit. How many came INTO the Senate and House of Representatives as middle class people and, on their salary (!!), left as multimillionaires? Robert Dole comes to mind, Joe Biden, but the list is endless. And the IRS? Busy chasing whats left of the middle class over $300.

She is a real Bitch? A rich bitch, but certainly not someone who cares about her fellow Marylanders, let alone all the other Americans. She needs to move to another place far away from here. Perhaps, the North Pole, would be good.
