Politicians and Big Money

President O’Bama just couldn’t believe that the money he and John McCain voted to give to Wall Street firms without strings – firms who had already spent themselves so unwisely they were on the verge (supposedly) of bankruptcy – was handed out to employees instead of for loans, credit, or to shore up the industry shows just how much money controls Washington. Then why did he vote to give them this money in the first place with no strings? What was he thinking?

Nothing has changed in this regard with the change in president. Bush asked for it, and O’Bama and McCain couldn’t vote yes fast enough to give our money away with no strings to banking and investment sector to keep their campaign money flowing in. Showing surprise and disdain now is disingenuous at best. Like feeding your kid ice cream for breakfast then complaining at lunch how overweight they are.
