Obama is dealing with bullies and hypocrites, he still seems to believe that there is a shred of honesty in Washington.
our financial sector is a massive scam, bleeding the real economy to death.
but the banksters have the money to buy Congress and the Senate.
with blackmail, if you don't let the financial sector rape the economy, there goes the stock market, the pension funds, you get chaos.
like a dog with fleas and ticks, that the vet keeps giving blood transfusions.
the fleas and ticks keep getting bigger and without a new vet, the dog is eventualy doomed.
at this point we are just playing for time.
Further investigation reveals that the money represented on this chart is only the tip of the iceberg. According to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), Big Labor spent $2.2 Billion on political activities during the 2008 & 2010 election cycles alone — eclipsing by four times the 20-year $1/2 Billion from the chart.

now that you mention bankers...
I seem to recall we came to be in this mess because of the big bank bail outs...
But I also saw where several of those banks repaid those loans...
well if that's true... what happened to the money????
was someone mistaken about those repayments or was the money never returned to where it came from and used elsewhere???
Of course it would take a much smarter man than I am to figure that out...
