Join me in contacting President Obama regarding the replacement for retiring head of the Federal Reserve Ben Bernanke.
“Leading Democrats are struggling with the idea that President Barack Obama may actually nominate economist Larry Summers to head the Federal Reserve. If he does, he’d pass over Fed Vice Chair Janet Yellen, who saw the warning signs of the 2008 financial collapse, for Summers, whose deregulatory advocacy as treasury secretary contributed to it.”
Summers was instrumental in the repeal of the Glass-Steagall act; A law that maintained enough control over Wall Street and the big banks for 50 some years.
Janet Yellen has the experience and knowledge to move this board in the right direction.
So we should all contact the white house, phone number 202-456-1111.
Ask them to support Janet Yellen.
On another topic Bill O’Reilly came out with a racist monologue a few days ago. Chris Hayes refuted O’Reilly’s rants with some facts. We all know how the right wingers abhor facts, makes them shrivel up and die. Link here for more info.
And last but definitely not least, a rally is planned for Lansing, Mi. next Wednesday, July 31.
Wednesday July 31st yet another hearing by the Michigan legislature to see how they can screw up the affordable care act and prevent at least 500, 000 Michiganders from obtaining healthcare.
Please join me in attending this rally. Look for me, I’ll be the old guy toting an oxygen tank on my back. I will be looking for you.
