I came upon this article that explain how we Americans listen to certain things from the mouth of our politicians but actually they mean something
Remember when Obama denounced "fat cats" during his performance on "60 Minutes,"
Well the truth can not be so far from what we all has been speculating for years and now months on how politics works in our nations capitol.
The president says Wall Street doesn't get it. He has it backward. Wall Street gets it. He still doesn't.
Actually I think he does get it, but many in this nation doesn't, now wonder why we are so angry with politics and politicians.
Wall Street knows that "sticks and stones can break my bones, but faux anger cannot hurt me." Wall Street believes the president can be rolled,
Congress can be bought, consumers can be screwed, jobs can be destroyed, the nation can be harmed, the public can be enraged -- and it can continue
these practices without limit and without shame and pay itself gigantic bonuses for it, and nobody will fight to change this
Some say that the fat cats "deserve" their pay and bonuses, but do they?
We most wonder, as the lame excuses for bills passed in Washington to "regulate" the financial system are nothing but a joke.
Why so much protecting for this fat cats coming from Washington? sometimes I know the answer to that one but most of the time I will like somebody
else to tell me the same thing I know just for reassurance.
Now we got another bill that will be rammed to us "call the joke of health care bill" that will give more power to corporate America over the
citizens in this nation.
Plus the secret deals for big pharma to control drugs and prices in the nation
Congress may pass a health care bill that would help insurance CEOs making $10 million a year spend a generation raising premiums even further,
while certain senators who take their money work to defeat a public option that would serve the nation and lower the deficit and that is supported by
a majority of the people.
And still many doesn't get it, this all about protection of the same fat cats that we citizens has grown to despise so much
Why are we nowhere in Washington asking for the heads of all this corrupted puppets that we call our nations congress?
We have a government that is working against the people, in favor of fat cats and taking away anything this nation population has build with sweat,
blood and hard labor.
The fat cats has defeated amendments to save homeowners, they now will get our own tax payer money to lend it to us with not conditions but with
plenty of taxes and interest to us
I love the way the article refers to the treasury department as Wall street in the Potomac
