Have the Presidential Debate. Have the Campaign.

Instead of talking about throwing more money into Wall Street, Congress should be talking criminal investigations, criminal indictments, special prosecutors and white collar crime.  It is inconceivable that no laws were broken, no lies were told under oath, no collusion occurred to bring us to this point.
