Obama beholden to Wall Street

Re: Contrary to image

Is President Obama’s administration governing mainly for the benefit of Goldman-Sachs and their friends?
I recall being surprised about four years ago when I read a short piece in “Mother Jones” magazine that said Goldman-Sachs had given substantially more money to Obama’s 2008 campaign than to the campaign of Sen. John McCain. It just didn’t fit with Obama’s image as a champion of the poor and working class.

Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura explains in his book, ‘”American Conspiracies,” how “it’s all about winning,” adding, “altogether Obama got $9.9 million from Wall Street bankers and investment and securities firms. No matter how nice we think the president is…he’s beholden to these power brokers.”
