Wall Street Ends Hope for Homeowners Via Congress
08 Jun 2009
As if the bank bailouts weren’t proof enough that Wall Street owned Congress. History will likely show that these bailouts involved the largest transfer of wealth ever — from the working class to that small group of billionaires who own the corporations.
