The senate just finished a procedural vote on amendments, to the amendments and other amendments.

In what was nothing less than a test run to make sure they had the needed votes to pass this legalized theft of taxpayer funds to bailout the most corrupted corporate banks and securities, the senate voted 72 to 25 against the American people.

One senator introduced an amendment which would have attached a surcharge of 10% on the super wealthy who benefited most from the corruption and of whom, many were directly involved.  Only one other senator (names unknown at this time) agreed.  The rest of these traitorous jackasses sat silent until it was time to vocalize their “no” votes. 

As is their normal method of operation, earmarks, special interests and non-related wish list items were tacked on to the bill as “sweeteners” to get it to pass.  As a result, it is estimated that the actual cost of the bailout with all the perks added in, will be 850 BILLION dollars.  Thats 850 BILLION that we do not have and will have to borrow….and we still do not know in detail what all got included in this theft of taxpayers funds.

NO MATTER WHO IS ELECTED PRESIDENT, YOUR TAXES WILL BE GOING UP SIGNIFICANTLY TO COVER THE SERVICE DEBT ON THE 850 BILLION DEBT! WE WILL NEVER REACH A POINT WHERE THIS BORROWED MONEY CAN EVER BE REPAYED.

As is their usual method when ramming something we all know is wrong down our nationalized throats, WE were threatened with our retirement savings, our pensions, our 401K’s, our jobs, our paychecks.  No legislation was included or allowed to be included that specifically protected retirements, jobs, pensions or 401K’s from obliteration.  Hell no!  They are worried about protecting these fat cat corporations/

Other than Bernie Sanders (I) Vermont, few of these so-called public servants expressed any concern for the stability of the middle class or its declining quality of life due to the excesses in greed, the corruption of the elite class. 

Come November, we all need to be pulling the levers for third party candidates and boot this bunch of career criminal politicians out of office, then move immediately to end all retirement payments to these same deposed kings and queens. 

The Senate made it perfectly clear that they have no intention of doing the will of the people.  What was apparent was their loyalty to their corporate sponsors.  Get rid of em’!
