List of Democratic Senators that are in the back pocket of the banking industry

April 30, 2009

I call on Americans everywhere to raise holy war on the following Democrats.  After their “Nay” votes on the banking reform bill Thursday, it is clear that they have been heavily influenced by lobbyists in Washington D.C.   Here is the list:

  • Max Baucus (MT)
  • Robert Byrd (WV)
  • Tom Carper (DE)
  • Jon Tester (MT)
  • Mary Landrieu (LA)
  • Ben Nelson (NE)
  • Blanche Lincoln (AR)
  • Arlen Specter (PA)
  • Michael Bennett (CO)
  • Tim Johnson (SD)
  • Byron Dorgan (ND)

    Primary opponents as well as a middle finger should be readied for all of these Senators.



    The bill on the floor would have saved millions of homeowners from foreclosure by renegotiating their home loans.  A powerful lobbyist group called the Mortgage Bankers Association ended up winning in the end.  Bankers celebrated the defeat of the bill.

    Earlier in the week, when the vote looked grim, Illinois Senator Dick Durbin made headlines by saying that “the banking industry owns this place.”

    I don’t understand the pressure from the banks.  If these houses go into foreclosure, they will not get their money back anyway.  In fact, the entire housing market will continue to fall and they will lose even more mortgages in the long run.  Get ready for more foreclosure signs.  Once again, Washington proves who they really represent.

    Of course, Republican Senators voted with the banks.

    The full story, along with how much money each Senator received from banks for favorable treatment, is available here.


    Top GOP leader skips Obama press conference for Britney Spears concert

    March 25, 2009

    If I know anything about politicians, it’s that they love whores.  After Britney Spears brought the sexy back by shedding a few pounds, how could a group of our loyal lawmakers resist attending her concert rather than watching the Obama press conference?

    DO WANT.

    DO WANT.

    Here’s the word: After recently appearing on dozens of 24 hour cable news channels attacking the President’s economic plans, House Republican Whip Eric Cantor has become a pseudo-celebrity.  Last night, Britney held a lip sync festival at the Verizon Center in downtown D.C.  Unable to resist the whore, Cantor opted to go to the concert rather than hear the latest economic news from the President of the United States.  Several members of the audience recognized the Rep as the fellow from the cable news shouting matches…er television shows.

    But this story isn’t isolated to the Grand Old White Guys.  Democrats loves whores just as much as the next guy.  But this is where things get a little fuzzy.  The Democratic guy in this case, is actually a Democratic lady.  Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana allegedly joined Cantor at the concert.

    It would be difficult for either congressperson to justify going to the concert for anything other than Britney Spears’ good looks.  Clearly it has nothing to do with her keen political insight.  And to claim that it involved her status as musical savant, well that would be just too damn easy.
