Legislating Greater Wall Street Theft
The new JOBS Act facilitates grand theft.
by Stephen Lendman
Political Washington is Wall Street's best friend. Whatever crooked bankers want they get. Their business model features grand theft. Wealth's amassed through fraudulent double-dealing.
Lawmakers facilitate their racketeering. They're rewarded in kind. Only fleeced households, investors, communities and nations lose out.
Their dirty game continues unobstructed. New legislation enhances what's on the books. Another bill will become law when Obama signs it. Wall Street's again celebrating, and why not. Business is better than ever, courtesy of complicit lawmakers.
At issue is the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (the JOBS Act) . On March 8, the House passed it overwhelmingly 390 - 23. On March 22, Senate followed 73 - 26. Doing what he does best, Obama will sign it into law. He'll again betray America's 99% in the process.
When everything comes up roses for Wall Street, ordinary people get scammed. It's the same every time like loaded dice let the house win.
