Nearly $1 million from Goldman Sachs (GS), over $700,000 from Citigroup (C), $695,132 from JPMorgan Chase (JPM) and $514,818 from Morgan Stanley (MS).

These are some of the top donations from big bank employees, their immediate family members and political action committees to Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign

Obama is, after all, the president who reserved positions in his cabinet to members of the American financial elite like Larry Summers as Director of the White House National Economic Council, General Electric (GE) CEO Jeffrey Immelt as head of the Council on Jobs and Competitiveness and William M. Daley, former banking executive with service to JPMorgan Chase, as Chief of Staff.

What do you call someone who will do anything for money?
Now... what do you call that same person but now he's in the white house?

More proof tthat cronyism is bought, Obama is a corporatist 101%
The same people that increased homelessness is being asked for more money

Now...... Bare with me, because the most important question is still to come.....

Today more money is being asked and that only means one thing!!!!

Which are the next available Govt. Positions for corporations to lobby for???
We got women in a cage dancing, sexy journalists flaunting their availability for state-sponsored propoganda(Newstitutes) and of course we have positions for you to hold for the right amount!

But let's tell the people to hate the idea of having less regulators while all of you corporatists hold that position
MUAHAHAHHAHAAAAAAAAAAAA

MUAHAHHAHAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

don't blame the player, blame the game. it's the system that's screwed up, not obama.

if a billionaire finances his own campaign, and owes nothing to nobody, the media and everyone else already start accusations that he's trying to buy the whitehouse.

the fact is more money, gives you more opportunities to reach as many people as possible. that's why campaign contributions are allowed.

another fact is why would anybody in congress kill the golden goose. nobody would have a penny to run.

second, the $10,000 a plate dinners candidates hold every week, are even more shady than open contributions by banks.

it's another way lobbyists and corporation funnel money and corrupt candidates.

What a sad state of affairs. I remember when $750 million to $1 billion was alot of money for a presidential candidate.

Actually, I still think it is, but that is just poor lil 'ol me thinkin' again.

The system is screwed up and so are many of the players
you change the game by looking at voting records... FINALLYYYYYY
something that very few people do
so this requires being discontent with some of the players
you are over-simplifying it by saying hate the game not the players

Politics in the states is completely corrupted, to the point of making the votes nothing more than a shell game.

I recently just watched a movie called "Casino Jack"
www.youtube.com... , it is related to casino gambling and the lobbyist involved in that part of government, taking that and applying ANY other interest and you can quickly see how un-important the general public is in the grand scheme of voting.

The system is severely corrupt and needs to be rebooted in every sense of the word, but I personally think it aint gonna happen.

"not gonna do it"

I think that we can prove that time travel is in fact possible, because every four years, no matter what goes on in the rest of the world, no matter what goes on in the USA, no matter how many stupid, crooked, low-life political scandals occur, no matter how many times elections are bought and sold, RIGHT OUT IN THE OPEN, we get back to November four years later and Hocus Pocus, no matter how many steps we think we've taken forward, we are exactly back in the same place we started four years before! The only Universal constants I can actually believe in are #1 E=MC2 and #2 We get the best government money can buy !!!!!!!
