For the record, I apportion a healthy share of the blame to the Democrats also. As an Independent, I figure its 60/40 GOP/Dem.
The GOP had the White House for the past 8 years, and controlled Congress for 12 of the past 14 years, so if you want to argue its higher, you have cause.
However, as noted in this earlier post, I hold Clinton Rubin and Summers responsible in large part for both the ruinous Commodities Futures Modernization Act, and the repeal of Glass Steagall.
Regardless, this is a very amusing cartoon:
