David Dayen: Behind Closed Doors, Hillary Clinton Sympathized With Goldman Sachs Over Financial Reform

What’s ahead of us is frightening. Politicians do not have a clue about the damage they’ve allowed. How many of them are just as out of touch with the middle class – or what’s left of us, as Hillary Clinton? There are good guys and there are bad guys. It’s pretty obvious Hillary is not on the good guy list.

It appears the majority of Americans feel our country has gone in the wrong direction for quite some time. The government is run like a fraternity party. It’s a free for all for the club members. The members thrive on perks and benefits derived from the membership and no one outside of the fraternity matters – because the members come first and are above law.

It’s time government were run by and for the people it serves. Needless to say we’d all fire an employee that deleted thousands of company emails – especially after the DOJ issued a summons. It should be disconcerting that anyone would openly say she wanted to “drone” (aka kill by drone… yes they can do that) another individual that has provided the public with email conversations that make disparaging remarks about Catholics, as well as Evangelicals made by her campaign, and releases speeches that she made to the same banksters that have ripped this country apart…among other issues that were meant to be hidden from the public – to our detriment.

You know, personally some of Trump’s statements offend me or at least make me cringe. However, hardly a CEO I’ve ever worked for or with hasn’t made some off color, politically incorrect statements at one time or another – but you know what? I still trusted them and they ran great businesses that even today aren’t in trouble like the banks. I’d take any of them to run our country because I’d rather have strength, honesty and reality – than hawkish hypocrisy and deceit. Swear like a sailor – but NEVER ever lie to me.

Excerpts of Hillary Clinton’s previously secret speeches to big banks and trade groups in 2013 and 2014 show her exalting the work of her hosts, hardly a surprise when these groups paid her up to $225,000 an hour to chat them up.

Far from chiding Goldman Sachs for obstructing Democratic proposals for financial reform, Clinton appeared to sympathize with the giant investment bank. At a Goldman Sachs Alternative Investments Symposium in October 2013, Clinton almost apologized for the Dodd-Frank reform bill, explaining that it had to pass “for political reasons,” because “if you were an elected member of Congress and people in your constituency were losing jobs and shutting businesses and everybody in the press is saying it’s all the fault of Wall Street, you can’t sit idly by and do nothing.”

Clinton added, “And I think the jury is still out on that because it was very difficult…

  1. I like you Deadly Clear but until the sheeple stop watching and listening to corporate media we are screwed. As far as ‘news’ reporting goes sometimes I want to scram from the top of my roof WTF? Are we in China?
