Banks Buy Votes!

"When Congress passed a new financial regulation bill last month, it sought to prevent federally insured banks from making speculative bets using their own money. But that will not stop banks from making bets that some critics deem risky, even as the rules go into effect over the next few years"

The reason for this is very simple. Our representatives, including Obama, were bought off by campaign contributions from the banking oligopolies. Until we have a constitutional amendment outlawing such bribery, "our representatives" will be representing someone else.

The ability of unions and corporations to influence our government is taking away our freedom. including free markets.
