Oh, President Obama, can't you do anything but promote bankers? Onward, rightward, DNC and RNC, to redistribute all social wealth to the to the transnational rich!
Quote:
President Obama appointed William Daley, a top financial executive and former Clinton administration official, as his new White House chief of staff. Daley is the Midwest chair of JPMorgan Chase, a board member of Merck, and former head of SBC. Obama will also reportedly name former Goldman Sachs consultant Gene Sperling to head the National Economic Council. We speak with Ari Berman of The Nation magazine.

Man, at least they aren't trying to pass ridiculous legislation that would make it a crime to enforce the healthcare act.
Oh, wait ... http://voices.washingtonpost.com/ezra-klein/2011/01/when_opposition_to_health-care.html
Though admittedly only in Wyoming.

Ahh, yes, and it's my wonderful wingnut congressman who's been tapped to chair the House Appropriations Subcommittee that oversees health and human services spending and has announced that he intends to block funds to the health care bill. So even if they can't repeal it in actuality, since it wouldn't get through the senate or past Obama, they can still prevent it from getting any money.

And we haven't a prayer of voting the mustard out of office, because Montana has gone from purple to infra-red. And our legislature is indeed trying to float a bill to throw our lot in with the Florida lawsuit and make it illegal to enforce here.

I voted! I always do. But there's no REASON here, anymore, or logic.

Well, at least they're frittering their time on something that won't pass in the Senate as opposed to doing some real damage.
