Obama's owners told him to gut Elizabeth Warren's Consumer Financial Protection Agency, so he did
Pravda. Really, is there any doubt now about who owns the government? (Nice timing too, when all eyes are riveted on the Health Insurance Company Bailout Summit). Here's Elizabeth Warren on the CFPA, and what a common sense measure it is, too:
"The credit market is broken."
NOTE Elizabeth Warren for President!
UPDATE Actually, it's hyperbole to say that Golden Sacks owns the government. The classic from Michael Lewis:
Rumor No. 1: “Goldman Sachs controls the U.S. government.”
Every time we hear the phrase “the United States of Goldman Sachs” we shake our heads in wonder. Every ninth-grader knows that the U.S. government consists of three branches. Goldman owns just one of these outright; the second we simply rent, and the third we have no interest in at all. (Note there isn’t a single former Goldman employee on the Supreme Court.)
