Oregon Congressman Calls Goldman Sachs "Gambling Addicts" On House Floor

Posted by Matt Davis on Wed, May 5, 2010 at 8:54 AM

This is Peter DeFazio. He's from congressional district four, and is facing a pretty smooth ride in the primary. But I wanted you to watch this, because it turns out that Oregon congressmen are capable of actually saying something interesting, and not just rambling on about streetcars and "decades of decision" and blah blah blahhhhh. This is a heroic rhetorical turn, Peter, and we salute your guts and outspokenness. He does a pretty good job of explaining exactly what Goldman did wrong, too—without resorting to obscure metaphors.

DeFazio: "Movies and onions...those are the two things you can't bet against..."
