Obama picks legal counsel on economy — an insurance executive who sought bailout CLICK HERE

So, instead of picking someone who actually knows how the person on MLK Avenue who is losing thier job, house, etc., he picks this lawyer who works/ed for a "financial services group". Isn't that the very sorts of people who GOT us into this depression? Story here. More about the loopholes in Obama's rules here.

I expect people to be skeptical, but goddammit President Obama, sometimes you act like the old guard that you are supposedly cleaning out.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
