Republicans "Making Love to Wall Street"
A few weeks ago, Mitch McConnell didn't have a firm position on the bailout. So, he took a trip to New York. He met in secret with 25 top banksters. He came out of that meeting with a commitment to two the line of the banksters in exchange for far in excess of 30 pieces of silver. Harry Reid called him out for it:
Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) threw his attack on the GOP into high gear Wednesday afternoon, accusing Republicans of "making love to Wall Street."
Reid has been slamming Republicans for obstructing progress on financial regulatory reform legislation for as long as its been debated, but Wednesday's move was the most blatant shot at the GOP's motives.
"The Republicans are having difficulty determining how they're going to continue making love to Wall Street," Reid said.
And, Main Street is getting screwed:
Jim Manley, Reid's spokesman, took the description one step further.
"What can I say? It's true," Manley said. "Republicans are making love to Wall Street while main street is getting screwed.”
The American people need more of this tough talk from the Senate Majority Leader. We're sick and tired of our elected officials bowing before the tycoons of Wall Street. We want leadership that stands up for us. More, please.
