If you told me that I could take billions of dollars in bailout money from the government and shower myself and my fellow comrades on Wall Street with $140 billion in bonuses – and all I have to take is a tongue lashing from the president and nothing more, tell me where to sign up.
President Barack Obama and his administration have undertaken their latest round of berating Wall Street for its bad ways.

You didn’t, but you have. In your defense, this economy stinks, and the mess of the Troubled Assets Relief Program was left behind by President George W. Bush’s Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, and you and your administration have been trying to figure it out, to no avail.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
