What was it that Hillary Clinton told Wall Street executives that was worth so much money to them? As long as Hillary Clinton is silent on the matter, that refusal to talk to voters, when talk came so richly for America’s financial elites, is the story that matters.
The mindset of the politicians who voted for H.R. 3340 yesterday was revealed in comments by the bill’s author, Texas Republican Jeb Hensarling, who said that “Americans have come to loathe” the Financial Stability Oversight Council and the Office of Financial Research. Really? Do YOU know anyone with special loathing for these regulatory offices?
Clinton isn’t giving up the money. Her New York City finance pay-for-access party is merely delayed to a more propitious date, after the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary.
