Obama and BFF Jamie Dimon whip together to pass bankster-friendly Cromnius bill
PMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon made calls to lawmakers on Thursday urging them to support the “cromnibus” spending bill, House Financial Services Committee ranking member Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) told reporters.
Dimon's involvement came amidst progressives enraged that the House "cromnibus" included a provision that they said would weaken Wall Street regulations.
"I think we got hurt when Jamie Dimon and the president started to whip," Waters told reporters after the vote. "That's when I think we lost some votes."
When Obama and Dimon whipping together lose votes -- and why didn't that happen this time? -- we'll know we're getting somewhere.
The vote on the bill in the Senate is Monday. I wonder if Warren will filibuster.
NOTE  Turn your sound down if Obama's voice makes you want to punch through your screen.
