The Saudis own the banks and the banks own the Senate
A bipartisan juggernaut of senior senators is spending the remaining week of the Thanksgiving recess forging agreement on a new sanctions bill that the senators hope to pass before breaking again for Christmas.
Obama's deal with Iran is very popular. Nobody wants a war and the end of sanctions will lower the price of heating oil just in time for winter. But somehow none of that matters to Robert Menendez and Chuck Schumer, they are pushing for new sanctions.
Ever since 1979 Saudi Arabia has had a big rivalry with Iran and wants us to do their dirty work for them, and their banker friends are pushing for this all the way.
Makes me sick.
