1/18 update: Yesterday Obama said in his campaign for Coakley speech the people should vote for Coakley because: “Bankers don’t need another vote in the United States Senate -- they’ve got plenty.” THIS is coming from the man who's largest campaign contributer was Goldman Sachs. THIS is coming from the man who has more bankers enlisted as advisors and in his cabinet than you'll find at a Friday happy hour in downtown NYC.
That comment should get "duplicitous statement of the year award" because Wall Street's best friend is the man who made the comment. Not only could Obama have stopped the TARP money that financed huge bonuses, but he could have stopped the bonuses from being paid.
Please vote for the Republican candidate. The Healthcare Bill is nothing more than one massive transfer of wealth from the taxpayers to BigPharma, Big Hospital Corporations and Big Insurance. Here's an example: there are 50 million uninsured in this country - the Bill requires everyone to buy insurance - if you can't afford it, the Government (read: YOU the Taxpayer) will pay for it. That's 50 million more insurance premium payments per month for the insurance industry. Most of that tab will be picked up by the Taxpayer since most people who are uninsured are uninsured because they can't afford it. Forget about all the Constitutional violations in this Bill. Follow the money: Big Pharma has spent $100's of millions in advertising to support this legislation. Ultimately they will be paid back in spades with your money.
