Wall Street Regulates Our Congress

The American people understand that we in Congress are unable to regulate Wall Street. In fact, their power is so great that they regulate the United States Congress. -- Sen. Bernie Sanders

  • This is true. Teddy Roosevelt and the old progressive republicans realized the we should have regulated capitalism not runaway capitalism. The megacorps and megabanks run everything and are powerful enough to influence the congress to exempt them from regulations and take advantage of disgraceful tax loopholes. Corporate welfare overshadows assistance for the poor by billions. The right to vote is an illusion of democracy.

    • Yes. Regulations would still allow corporations to thrive. But giving them the power to take over Congress (much less, the world) is unnecessary to corporate well-being… and is suicidal for the U.S. and other sovereign nations.

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!
