HOW'D THAT DALLIANCE WITH THE DEMOCRATS WORK OUT FOR YA?:

The Center for Responsive Politics found that banks and their workers gave nearly twice as much to the GOP during the last three months of last year, The Washington Post reported.
Securities and investment firms started out 2009 giving to Democrats by a 2-1 margin, but finished the year with nearly half of their donations ending up with Republicans.
