Next Time Wall Street Need Bailout, Say Critics, Remember Names of These 17 Democrats

Jon Queally, staff writer

"Remember these names the next time Wall Street tanks our economy and taxpayers are left to bail out the Big Banks."

That was the declaration by the progressive advocacy group Public Citizen late Wednesday after 17 members of the Democratic caucus in the U.S. Senate joined with Republicans to pass a sweeping deregulatory banking bill, derisively referred to as the 'Bank Lobbyist Act' by critics.

I guess those blue dogs just love playing fetch for their masters who throw millions into the field while getting billions back in quite the slobbering fashion.

Here’s why: https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2018/03/12/mass-media-propaganda-is-the-only-thing-keeping-us-from-rising-like-lions/


#7

Wow! that scared the #@$% out of me!


#8

Why isn’t Chuck Schumer the first name on this list? He’s the leader of the Senate Dems, and he didn’t actively oppose this bill.


#9

The “independent” sold us out for ONLY 300,000. Wow.


#10

So the next bail outs, like the last bail outs, will be bi-partisan.

Oh, and water turns out to be wet.


#11

NOW your talkin’ some true logic. (aka sometimes as common sense)


#12

Cory Gardner was a sellout all ready, to the Koch (pronounced ‘Cock’) brothers and WS (are the 2 any different , really?). Will call his number in Denver in 2 minutes, even though I no longer live there, he used to “represent” me (or at least he thought so).


#13

This is the ‘demoBrat’ that was just elected and already he’s turned into a demowhore… so much for the democrats ‘turning over a new leaf’!


#14

My fantasy is walking all of them up to the roof of their buildings on Wall St … give them a little push … tell them to “fly-y-y-y-y-y little birdie!”


#15

My money was moved to my local credit union, and it is much better.
We control our lending, and our costs, locally to benefit our community

Why anyone would have a Wells Fargo or JPMorgan Chase account is beyond me.
We know they are Criminals, just not in Jail…yet

And as far as the Brokerage accounts…they got nothing of mine.
Hedge funds…no way.

Boycott Divest Sanction… the Operational Mantra of our Times

Help it Grow it by having the discussion. Most people will agree, help them change.


#16

NO! Remember their names and VOTE them OUT!


#17

WHY??? This is essentially a return to Gramm Leach Bliley that turned banks into casinos, and damned near tanked the world economy. We just finished with quantitative easing and a direct bailout with Tarp. What was wrong with Glass-Steagal? Why do these people hate Americans? I have never insulted them.


#18

But then send them the bill.


#19

Rumor has it it may be a bail-in where they confiscate the savings of depositors. Everyone should be ready at the first sniff of this to withdraw their money. Then on to total, non cooperation.


#20

I have zero money in a bank. I use a local credit union.

I have been considering a loan to finance a business start up. But every time I think about owing a bank money, I reconsider. Fuck em.’


#21

Good strategy Tank.


#22

Rather than trust to my aging and increasingly faulty memory, I just clicked on the image with the 17 names and saved it in my “Corrupt Politicians” folder alongside photos of Tweetle-Dumb, Lyin’ Ted, Krooked Hilliary & Dirty Debbie et al.   I will NEVER donate to the DCCC, DNC, DSCC nor to any of these traitors, but only individually to a VERY limited number of proven and trustworthy progressives — such as Sherrod Brown and Liz Warren.


#23

So I did call the office, and let the guy know that Cory was #1 on this Shameful list. And that when the next crash occurs, we will all remember which of these 16 helped the GOP pass a pacifier bill for WS.

Also, that the most common complaint of dems. that I see on this and other sites is “two sides of the same coin”. And that we don’t need just more D’s or R’s, but pitchforks and torches.
