I think what Elizabeth Warren means by "social contract" and "paying it forward" for corporations is that without the hard work of the American people and the manufacturing base that was once vibrant with the blood & sweat of the American factory worker; the core backbone (the middle class) of this country, the rich don't get rich or richer, factories don't exist or prosper in the black financially and instead of looking out for the very hands that toiled 8 hours a day, 7 days a week,...

Fixed that last line.... If you take a step back and look at all of the conversions politically, you'll notice how the language is focused on appeasing the corporations, markets and high net worth individuals. Elizabeth Warren is one of the few exceptions. There's a video of her i posted several years ago where she walked through the data that gave the lie to the idea that "poor people buying homes they couldn't afford" are the cause of this economic downturn. Her presentation is also...

So does she mean that nobody who built a factory nor the people they employed never paid taxes? This woman does get it that trucking companies also have to pay taxes to haul their good. The registration we pay every year that allows us to legally drive pays for the roads. I'm sure that factory owner pays property taxes that pays for local police. The is no such thing as a "social contract". That quote is rambling uninformed garbage.

Well, Cholly, ER, Muhammad, I'm glad that somebody gets it. Every word in the quote is true; there would be no rich people in America if American tax payers had not first paved a way for it to happen. What right wing extremists and their knee-groes soon forget is that the "Social Contract" is a two-way street, (in fact any contract is reciprocal), people like that want the 99% fulfill their obligations in the Social Contract and just forget about Social Contract Obligations of the 1%.

This is what the president should have been voicing support for during these past 6 years and his Attorney General Eric Holder should have been prosecuting the wall street fat cats and Too Big To Fail Banksters who screwed the national and global economy.

It would be great if Glass Steagall Act became law again but something worse than the 2008 economic meltdown would have to happen. Why Obama did not reinstate GSA is really a missed opportunity and the regulations that was passed really changed little. Before GSA was removed commercial banks took deposits and made loans, investment banks sold investment services, underwrite projects, assist in mergers and trade in the markets. Now that GSA is gone commercial banks, not only can the make...

The apex oligarchs are Wall Street banks and btw the oil companies are really controlled and owned by Wall Street banks. Somehow this country have to find the political will to break them up. But we are surrounded by monopolies on all of the necessities of life. Ultimately Wall Street are calling the shots.

And how much money do we give the Banks in subsidies and how much did we spend in taxpayer bailouts in 2008 and 2009 with no strings attached? And the Banks still have the nerve to charge outrageous fees or do what they want to your bank account by changing terms when they feel like it??!! If Ray Ray and Pookie and 'nem can get 20 years for slinging rock on the block, the corporate persons (as deemed by the Supreme Court) need to face serious jail time.

This has to be the BIGGEST sign EVER that shows that corruption and deceit, bribery and conspiracy runs DEEP within our government and corporate and banking systems. I mean .... even Stevie Wonder could SEE that if what these criminals .... people are doing isn't a crime ... it sure in the hell SHOULD be!! And since nobody's gone to jail YET for ANY these financial-based crimes ... then it's probably a sure bet that it'll never happen. They are a more close-knit and protected group than a...

If every drug dealer stopped selling and every addict stopped buying drugs all of a sudden in America, it would crash our economy, and they know it.
