2. Government employees gotta buy stuff just like private sector ones do.

It's one of the many things the TeaHad wing of the GOP doesn't seem to grasp . . . like the idea of raising wages to keep up with inflation, or making education and health care LESS expensive and MORE accessible, not the other way around.

But they will. OH YES they will.

9. According to Bloomberg Business they were invited to deal with the Repugs

According to Bloomberg Business... the heads of Goldman-Sachs,(Vampire Squid, Loyd Blankfein) CitiBank, and JP Morgan (Jamie Diamon) are on their way to meeting with President Obama. Obama is hoping to have them apply pressure to the Repug Congresscritters they donated to. I wondered if Jamie will ask PBO to intervene with Holder at Justice on JP Morgan investigations in a trade for his cracking Congresscritters heads for dropping their demands.

Considering what these three Big Investment Banks owe Obama....here's hoping he pulls in the favors he's owed..big time!

11. They owe him favors-Big Time. So if he's calling in what they owe him

because he thinks they can break arms....then at least he's trying. But, I wonder if these crazy Repugs would even listen. They probably get more from Koch Brothers and Military Contractors than from Wall Street....but, maybe a few can be turned.

13. I'm not sure about the new head of Citibank (Michael Corbat),

but Blankfein and Dimon donate far more to Dems than repukes. I couldn't actually find and repuke congressmen that Blankfein had donated to and Dimon had only Stivers and Portman.
