What ALL Americans – Liberals AND Conservatives – Want

November 28th, 2010

Washington’s Blog has a good list:

Break Up the Unholy Alliance Between Big Government and Big Banks
“the list of prominent economists and financial experts calling for the too big to fails to be broken up is wholly bipartisan:”

Throw the Criminals In Jail
“Everyone agrees that financial scammers must be tried and put in prison.”

Audit the Fed
“The bill to audit the Fed passed in a bipartisan landslide, and the overwhelming majority of Americans favor a full and complete audit.”

Safe and Healthy Food and Water
“A large majority of Americans want strong food safety rules, and want genetically modified foods to be labeled

Fair Elections
80 percent of all Americans oppose the Supreme Court’s recent decision allowing unlimited campaign contributions.”

Most Americans see these as — to use one of my friend Steve’s favorite words — “obvious.”

Who are the exceptions, the ones who don’t want these things?

Republican politicians. They’re devoted to blocking four out of five. (Notice which one has actually passed?)

I think that makes it pretty clear where the problem lies.
