Bankers who broke Big Dig with swaps gone awry get paid for fix

The same bankers who sold Massachusetts interest-rate swaps that blew up the debt financing for the so-called Big Dig road and tunnel project in Boston — costing taxpayers $100 million — are getting even more money to fix what they broke.

This is happening too often now. The same slithering weasels whose greed and duplicity helped crater the economy are now getting paid to fix what they broke. This is akin to giving a junkie the keys to your house and asking him to be a house-sitter while you’re on vacation.

Yes, I’m sure they will act differently this time…
