    with FACTS!

    Hell, even Credit Unions, which are benefiting from the "income inequality" movement, are contributing more to the repubs than to the dems...

    I am not now, nor have I ever been, a member of the Republican Party.

      We cannot turn our blind eyes to the fact that BOTH political parties are bought out/sold out/ to the biggest bidder.

      Can Obama get this money and not somehow give Goldman Sachs what it paid for?  I do not know.  Why would Goldman give the money to the president?  What will they get in return?  (Maybe just the offer to continue to not pursue prosecutions?).  I dunno what they are paying for and neither do most of us.

        which uis why public financing is a better idea... and one that we do not have at this time.

        Shouldn't you be asking why the President has caused a constitutional crisis by doing the recess appointments that empowers the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau... an agency that Goldman Sachs lobbied heavily against?

        And...

        Why would the President pick a man to head the agency that Goldman Sachs fears because in his action as AG he prosecuted not only the companies... but the individual officers of those companies?

        Why would Goldman give the money to the president?  What will they get in return?  (Maybe just the offer to continue to not pursue prosecutions?).  I dunno what they are paying for and neither do most of us.

        I don't have any argument with your assertion that both parties have been corrupted by big money thrown at them by Wall Street firms, but President Obama's actions fly in the face of your assertion about his motives.

        Until we see what Cordray will do... I have to relegate your assertions into the "tin foil hat" category.
