***Who Is Funding Obama And McCain Campaigns?***

http://justgetthere.us/blog/archives/Both-Presidential-Candi...

The very banks at the heart of the Fed bailout on Wall Street and the newly created nationalized banking structure created by the banking cartel, heavily funded both presidential candidates from the two major parties. Is it any wonder why McCain and Obama voted the way they did for the bailout of Wall Street without hesitation. The case could be made that they played it safe being on the national stage and wanted the perception amongst the voters that they wanted to fix the economic mess created by the very companies being bailed out. I, however disagree with that notion, and would rather suggest that they were actually voting to support the bankers who have lined their pockets.

The list for both candidates is comprised of almost every banking institution involved in the newly formed nationalization plan, so are we to expect either of these guys to present anything different to reform our economic\monetary policy or improving oversight of these institutions? This is just another indication of how both parties at the top are compromised, and really belong to the same party of bankers and Wall Street execs and their voting records reflect it.
