Do ALL The Members Of The House Financial Services Committee Take Bribes From The Banksters?

• DownWithTyranny
"Contributions from parties with an interest in legislation are really nothing but bribes. Sure, it's legal for the most part. Sure, everyone in Washington does it. Sure it's the way the system works. It's one of Washington's dirty little secrets-- but it's bribery just the same"

There are certain committees, congressmembers love getting on-- and sometimes pay to get on-- especially the committees that play a role in regulating big-money industries, like Agriculture, the Military Industrial Complex, Health Care and, most of all, Finance. Finance has paid out bigger bribes to Congress than any other sector-- by far. Since 1989, the Finance/Insurance/Real Estate sector has ponied up $1,710,713,286 in congressional races. This cycle, they've given $135,085,054 so far. The numbers are so big, they're almost incomprehensible. But to the banksters, this kind of cash is an investment, an investment that pays enormous dividends-- like, for example, the repeal of Glass-Steagall, which helped make lots of millionaires multimillionaires and some multimillionaires into billionaires. It was also very lucrative for a number of congressmen, particularly members of the House Financial Services Committee.

 I've said it before: What used to be called graft and bribery is now called campaign contributions, and it is especially attractive as elected officials get to keep any left over contributions for themselves.
