    Who think Booker will be great or good senator.

    Wall St. is not the only issue. He'll be a strong Dem voice in the Senate, probably for decades to come.

    Jeers to negativity. Fine to push Booker on the issues, but overall, I think he's on our side.

    •  We fundamentally disagree then (0+ / 0-)

      Corporate greed, corporate malfeasance, corporate power, corporate influence over our government are the primary issues from which flow nearly every problem we are facing which include catastrophic climate change, the toxicity of our air and water, the banking and housing crises, unemployment, outsourcing, decimation of labor union power, massive increase in the income gap and the wealth gap, shrinking middle class, massive increase in private debt, decrease in savings, increase in poverty, hunger, lack of medical care, military adventurism, increase in prison construction and incarceration, dismantling of the public education system, media consolidation, growing attempts to cut social security...I have to stop now before I get completely despondent. You and I are living in different universes. Standing up against those who denounce even the most obviously heinous activities on Wall Street is clear evidence to me that Cory Booker is not on my side.
