First, an an introduction, learn how GOP-Congress makes it's money...
From The Guardian: When this financial crisis began nearly four years ago the story seemed simple. The banks were broke and they told our leaders that unless the taxpayers bailed them out and took their private debts on to the public account, then the world would end. Our politicians believed them. We took on huge debts and bailed out the banks. Right or wrong, at least the story seemed straightforward: they owed us huge sums of money. Then as the crisis continued, a new group most of us had never heard of appeared – the bond holders. It turned out the banks owed huge sums to the bond holders too, and so did we. The story of who owed whom began to change. Gradually the story became less about the banks owing us money and more about owing the bond holders. It seems to me that our governments and their financial advisers from the banks have a double standard when it comes to debt and its repayment; one which greatly benefits the financial world and punishes the taxpayer. On the one hand, the debts of private banks and those who own that debt, the bond holders, are being protected from any losses by the publicly funded bailouts. Public debt, on the other hand, at the insistence of the same banks and bond holders we have bailed out, is being paid down at breakneck speed, no matter what the cost in unemployment and the destruction of social services.
Recently, Jon Stewart mocked Congress for their in your face hypocrisy...
How do you distract people from the fact that you're making money off of their misery?... and are engaged in activities that led to economic disaster? Answer: You blame a scapegoat.
Scapegoat: Occupy Wall Street
From The Guardian: The shocking truth about the crackdown on Occupy "No 3 was the most clarifying: draft laws against the little-known loophole that currently allows members of Congress to pass legislation affecting Delaware-based corporations in which they themselves are investors."
The above image is from her... "The Senate Banking Committee quizzes JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon on the efficacy of Dodd-Frank and measures he would take to prevent future catastrophic bank losses"Moment Of Zen On Congress (i.e. intentionally messing up the Governmental structure written in the US Constitution that was designed for "We The People" by spending money on bad investments - Congress is EXTREMELY corrupt and Obama refuses to investigate anyone but Florida over "Non-Us Citizens"!!!)

2. (see 1 minute 30 seconds into video: Paulson requires no oversight or accountability from Congress)
3. Then Congress did some grandstanding while they didn't even attach requirements to the money they gave in the bail outs...
A Bloomberg report reveals that the U.S. government loaned banks $7.7 trillion in secret bailout funds at no interest and then borrowed the money back at interest.

"Let the record show that on January 16, 2012, the good people of South Carolina booed the Golden Rule." ― Jon Stewart. Indecision 2012
Notice that the rhetoric the GOP is using (at 3 mins and 15 secs -approx) is towards creating civil war while basic moral values such as "The Golden Rule" is being booed. This sort of crazy behavior is basically "Tea Party". The Tea Party is funded by the Koch Brothers and Newt Gingrich helped create it (It used to be Ron Pau's but it isn't anymore).
Another example of creating fear through paranoia: Whistling to set off a nuclear bomb (from a movie? I remember this scene) ...and getting solitary confinement (unusually harsh and nonsensical punicshment cause if that's possible we have a bigger problem than this one guy).
