Additionally, it had been sort of quite in here for a week - someone had to post from a different perspective to get some dialogue going.

No, they'll do the much more painful thing - threaten to withdraw funding.

The fact that the bank has candidate funding to withdraw is a main part of the problem.

You act as if it's liberal/progressives on Wall Street doing this.

Report: Closed-Door GOP Meeting With Cruz Turned Into 'Lynch Mob'

TOM KLUDT – OCTOBER 4, 2013, 7:04 AM EDT21413

More details are emerging about Wednesday's closed-door meeting where Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) evidently received an earful from his Republican colleagues, with one senator describing what transpired as a "lynch mob."

A report published Friday by The New York Times shed more light on the private lunch, indicating that Sens. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Dan Coats (R-IN) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) blasted Cruz for leading the charge to block funding for the Affordable Care Act, a quixotic effort that led to the government shutdown.

According to the Times report, Ayotte demanded that Cruz renounce attacks directed at Republicans by an unnamed "conservative group." Politico reported earlier this week it was attacks levied by the Senate Conservatives Fund, the organization founded by former Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), that rankled Cruz's GOP colleagues.

According to the Times, Cruz did not disavow the attacks nor did he offer a strategy for the defunding effort, prompting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to join the criticism of the freshman senator.

“It just started a lynch mob,” an unnamed senator told the Times.

Sure, Wall Street is making out like bandits under the current fiscal policy of zero percent interest rates and QE money printing. Can’t have that status quo applecart overturned by a bunch of non-elites can we?

Very convenient that you've omitted the other reasons that the elites are making out like bandits. Deregulation, lowering of the capital gains taxes, lowering of taxes for the top income bracket, taxation of passive income etc.

What a joke.

Yes, it's all Obama's fault.

We didn't have Reagan. We didn't have the Bushes or Clinton.

Waste of time discussing anything with you.
