Keeping the American Middle Class Informed

I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the 12 people on this unconstitutional “Super Congress” and what money has been supporting them throughout their careers. I highlighted everything in red over $1 million. You will see some common points of lobbying influence. These people are deciding on debit issues for the nation. (Data from OpenSecrets.com)

If you want to see what the President, all the Senators, and Congress have been doing, go here to find out who is paying them and what things they have been doing with our money:

http://www.opensecrets.org/elections/index.php

Here are the industries which contribute the most lobbying monies to Congress and their top recipients:

Hummmm, you ever wonder why some in the banking, insurance, and financial institutions always seem to do well when the economy goes bad?

Greg Goodwin

In order to create a global banking and economic system you must first destroy major parts of the existing one. Successful individual economies would not agree to a centralized global banking system, market system, monetary system, or economic system until a point where the current system is failing or has failed. Greg Goodwin
