Dems Confess: Obama the Wall Street Prez
Ron Reagan, Jr joins Chris Matthews for a rare moment of liberal honesty - Democrats are as much in the bag with Wall Street as the GOP may be.
Let's not forget the Democrats controlled both houses of congress and the White House numerous times in our lifetimes and they didn't fix the tax system when they had all the power in the world.
Who is the most in the bag of Wall Street? Here are the facts from John Rossamando at the Daily Caller:
Despite his rhetorical attacks on Wall Street, a study by the Sunlight Foundation's Influence Project shows that President Barack Obama has received more money from Wall Street than any other politician over the past 20 years, including former President George W. Bush. In 2008, Wall Street's largesse accounted for 20 percent of Obama's total take, according to Reuters... An examination of the numbers shows that Obama took in $421,242 in campaign contributions in 2008 from Bank of America's executives, PACs and employees, which exceeded its prior record contribution of $329,761 to President George W. Bush in 2004.
A war on Wall Street is a war on Obama.
