    From CNN:
    Banks open up their wallets to influence Congress - Aug. 2, 2010
    But remember, Obama supports and stands behind the common man. Except for his cabinet which is mostly banking sector types.

    It's almost as though Aldrich, Piatt, Warburg, Davison, Strong and JP Morgan planned it all out ahead of time. :eusa_whistle:

    Obama and U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner only want what's best for Americans. God Bless them.

    The New Jersey teachers union spent over 6.5 million to oppose Christie and that was just one state.

    We can extrapolate the total of all teachers unions to be pretty equal to the lobbying efforts of any private sector group.

    I wonder how many teachers jobs could have been saved for that 6.5 million.
