This final note today, to get us back to where we started. That Senate Banking Committee this morning was a very neat intersection of money and power. There are 22 senators on the committee. Sixteen of them have taken campaign contributions from JPMorgan’s political action committee.

Jamie Dimon: I don’t know.
