Wall Street Claims Free Taxpayer Money a Constitutional Right | Youtube

A subsidy designed to encourage bank participation in the Fed system decades ago that amounts to huge piles of free money with no conditions was going to be reduced. Bankers freaked out, claiming the annual free money was property and that taking it was a violation of their Constitutional rights. ~ The Jimmy Dore Show

Appreciation must go to Jimmy Dore, and other comedian news commentators. For instance, I recently saw the Huffington Post headline about banks claiming a constitutional right, but didn’t have the stomach to read the article. Thanks to Jimmy, I got over the hurdle.

The People need to know the dismal truth, so we can to hold our elected officials accountable.

    The Corporate Welfare money that we give Banks could give every American a nice home/house. Let’s make a difference this November and elect Bernie Sanders as President of the USA!!
