  •  Wonder Why Wall St Gave Him So Much Money (13+ / 0-)

    Gosh, I always "wondered" why Wall Street gave Obama so much money. Guess it's not a mystery any more.

    The way to strengthen Social Security is to simply get wages and employment levels up. Funding for Social Security is a percentage of workers' earnings. If it's "going broke" then they are.

    Which is a serious problem.

      people working inside the Obama administration who have ties to Goldman Sachs: it's very enlightening.

      Even as early as 2010, you could find a number of articles posted similar to this one published by McClatchy:

      Goldman's connections to the White House and the Obama administration are raising eyebrows at a time when Washington and Wall Street are dueling over how to overhaul regulation of the financial world.

      Lawrence Jacobs, a University of Minnesota political scientist, said that "almost everything that the White House has done has been haunted by the personnel and the money of Goldman . . . as well as the suspicion that the White House, particularly early on, was pulling its punches out of deference to Goldman and its war chest."

      (emphasis mine)

      And people wonder why Obama won't prosecute any of the criminals on Wall Street.
