Who Will Your Senator Stand With Now?

Brand new op-ed submitted by Dylan Ratigan.


At this very instant, many of those in our Senate are in danger of being led off the plank by outgoing Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee Chris Dodd. With cloture passing, Senator Dodd now has one final chance to present a manager's amendment to make a weak bill stronger (or possibly even weaker.)

Once again, this financial "reform" process has thankfully brought into the light of day that we have politicians who are brazen in their willingness to aid the same fraudsters who have brought a great nation to its knees. But as this week's primaries have clearly shown, there is no hesitation by the voters in throwing out the Establishment that got us into this mess and apparently has no plans to help us get out.

Thankfully, once forced to vote, politicians can no longer merely pretend to working for the People as they do the bidding of the Banksters. So once you look beyond all of the well-documented behind-the-scenes work by Dodd to weaken financial reform, we also have his on-the-record votes on a few of the meaningful attempts at real reform:

And just so you don't think he can't say yes to anything...

  • Yes on the Carper Amendment to actively prevent state Attorney Generals from fighting for your rights, because apparently the one lesson Senator Dodd learned from this mess is that our country will be much better off if he can just keep the next Eliot Spitzer from protecting citizens.

Now is the time to contact Senator Dodd and let him and his staff know that you demand real financial reform. Though the Senator is leaving office voluntarily, chances are that your Senator would like to stay. So if you are so inclined, ask them to exert their influence on the Chairman as well.

Ask them if they stand with Chris Dodd, who vacates his office with our nation in tatters largely due to the same banking system run amok that has plied him with campaign dollars, in danger of leaving this as his legacy:

Chris Dodd can still do what is right and give our country real reform. But since he is leaving the Senate for what are sure to be greener pastures, there is very little incentive for him to work for the People other than in the hopes of saving his legacy. However, we have a right to be represented in our Government and this is the time for your representative to hear the will of the People.

The reform bill seems to be largely a distraction. Anything that maintains any Fed secrecy can be gamed. I suppose any audit of the Fed should be applauded, but a partial audit can be bad if it allows the entity to disguise the truth.

The only fair system moving forward must be 100% transparent with respect to public money as in Article I of the Constitution.

The Texas Board of Education is considering another raft of amendments to the state's new history curriculum today before taking a final vote on the package tomorrow. The controversial new standards emphasize American exceptionalism, religion's importance to the Founding Fathers, and the benefits of low taxes. Once they're approved and promulgated, the standards will be taught to Texas's 4.7 million public school students in 2011, with millions of new textbooks tailored to meet the guidelines.

WASHINGTON (AFP) - Right-wing darling Sarah Palin accused US President Barack Obama on Sunday of leading a lax response to the Gulf of Mexico spill because he is too close to the big oil companies.
