Posted on 07/17/2011 1:47:06 PM PDT by Hojczyk
A year after President Barack Obama signed into law the most extensive financial regulations since the Great Depression, Wall Street so far is putting its political money elsewhere.
Employees of Goldman Sachs Group gave Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney $238,250 in the last three months, more than workers at any other company, according to a computer-assisted analysis of Federal Election Commission data. Obama took in $10,113.
Four years ago, employees of New York-based Goldman gave $994,795 to Obama and $234,275 to Romney, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a Washington-based research group. For both candidates, it was more than any other companys employees.
In addition, Romney took in $2.1 million from donors reporting a New York state address, where the financial industry is headquartered, FEC data shows. Obama raised $1.3 million during the same period. For the 2008 election, Obama raised $50.5 million in the state; Romney raised $2.8 million, according to the center.
Romney and Obama were among the candidates offering the first looks at their presidential fundraising. Their FEC reports cover donations through June 30.
Will someone please break this,worthless Monster up!
Couldn’t agree more. Too big NOT to fail.
Romney has promised Goldman Sachs that he’ll get Cap and Trade passed if elected. Something The Kenyan was unable to do.
If you take a look at who is funding Romney the RINO, it’s the big finance houses.
So when the RNC comes knocking on the door for funds, send the money directly to the candidate of your choice. Or the elite GOP will chose the RINO er...Romney for us.
I smell back room deals.....and it stinks. To many of the big finance houses back the RINO. And back room deals are NOT good for the average Joe or Jane.
With Goldman Sachs supporting Romney what more needs to be said about the man. He’s a flaming RINO of the worst order.
Goldman Sachs is toast if they don’t get Cap and Trade passed.
Explains why all the big finance houses are routing for the RINO.
Nit Rummie is a mini me mac, the crybaby liar, daddy.
