How about a test of your injustice barometer?

Bailout Indignation by Ralph Nader on

How about a test of your injustice barometer?

You might think that the reckless, avaricious, giant corporations, having shrunk the economy, cost millions of jobs and then demanded that taxpayers be dunned for years into the future for multi-trillion dollar bailouts, would show contrition, regret, or self-restraint of their power over Washington.

Forget it. They’re baaack! Their greed and power are revving up big time to bring Washington and you the taxpayer, you the parent, you the consumer, you the worker, to your knees.
Here is a sample of the appalling dynamics of corporate greed and continuing over-reach each day in your nation’s capital.

Hey, I'm sure they feel like they bought our government fair and square and can do whatever they want with it. After all, why else would they have pumped all those millions of dollars into the campaign coffers of Obama and the other Democrats?

Someday we'll learn that the politicians we should surely distrust are precisely the ones we see on TV all the time. If you see a politician on the TV, you should know that it took big bags of corporate money to get them there. The politicians on the TV will never be the ones on our side.
