SOTU silent about Wall Street
See this article pointing out that the SOTU had nary a peep about Wall Street. While the President railed about inequality not one reference to what caused it, the roll back of regulations that led to the worst financial crises since the depression. Not one word about the admitted crime and fraud the banks committed. How not one of their ranks faced criminal charges. The record amounts they paid in settlements. How they invested in jobs overseas and lobbied to reduce or eliminate fair wages and benefits. And how they no longer invest in American jobs and goods but instead in fraudulent instruments specifically designed to reap reward for them and rape the commons from us. No, not a sound, except to promote them once again with this disastrous TPP trade deal. His rhetoric is empty and his solutions are band-aids on a severed artery.
