One Simple Yet Profound Question

Why do you suppose there are 32 co-sponsors to H.R. 1489 — Return to Prudent Banking Act of 2011 — and among these are such heavyweights as:

  • Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), the Co-Chair of the Progressive Caucus
  • Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), former Chairman of the United States House Committee on Ways and Means
  • Rep. Louise McIntosh Slaughter (D-NY), ranking member House Committee on Rules
  • Rep. Edolphus Towns (D-NY), former Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee
  • Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA), former Co-Chair Progressive Caucus
  • Rep. John Conyers (D-MICH), former Chair, current ranking member House Judiciary Committee, dean of Black Caucus
  • Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), former Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus
  • Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), former Chair Congressional Black Caucus, former Co-Chair of the Progressive Caucus
  • Rep. George Miller (D-CA), former Chair, current ranking member Education and the Workforce Committee
  • Rep. Michael Capuano (D-MA), ranking member U.S. House financial services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations
  • Rep. James Moran (D-VA)
  • Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD)
  • Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH)
  • Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA)
  • Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI)
  • Rep. Al Green (D-TX)

Let alone the bill’s original signers:

  • Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH)
  • Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC)

Hot Damn! In bi-partisan consensus is fertile ground

Do you think these folks might have an inside track on a fast approaching train wreck about to devastate the U.S. economy like nothing anyone living has ever seen: an extraordinary tsunami of destruction that, in the process threatens to bring the banking system to its knees?

Think about it.

The strength these allies bring to a fight in which a knock-out punch is entirely within reach cannot be overstated. Herein is a plus side following yesterday’s battle. In fact, more positives than negatives remain, if only you are willing to see…
