The banker zombies are not content at having been bailed out at the expense of the living standards of all future generations of Americas. No. In fact, they are fighting tooth and nail for the right to continue to steal more and more from the increasingly impoverished citizenry.
With the election right around the corner, this is what the banksters are up to now. From a Bloomberg article:
A banking trade group is preparing to set up a political fund that would allow members to funnel money anonymously to pro-industry candidates in the final months of the U.S. election campaign.
The American Bankers Association board is set to vote tomorrow on a plan to create a nonprofit that would donate to super-political action committees, or super-PACs, that can spend unlimited amounts on TV ads and other campaign activities.
Note what that said above. Bankers are setting up a non-profit to buy off politicians with anonymous donations. Oh yeah, this is going to turn out well for us. How are they able to do this?
A series of court decisions and regulatory changes in 2010 unraveled previous federal limits on political donations. The donors pool their money in nonprofits, which keep contributor names secret, and super-PACs, which have amassed $350 million through the end of July.
Also, just bear in mind the next time you read some nonsensical bankster apologist policy paper; think about how it got funded. Also from Bloomberg:
In accord with federal rules, ABA staff members said that the fund would spend 51 percent of its money on “public-issue advocacy,” such as research, policy papers and media campaigns.
The bankers would like to thank you America. If so many of you weren’t such ignorant, apathetic sheeple they never could have gotten away with the 2008 heist and everything they have done and continue to do to you since. USA! USA!
