Not a Good Week for Progressives

This has not been a good week for the American people. Thanks to the election of Scott Brown, it now appears that health care is dead. Air America has declared bankruptcy.

But, really, those concerns pale compared to what the activist Roberts court did today.  See here here here here and here.

Below is President Obama’s response.

With its ruling today, the Supreme Court has given a green light to a new stampede of special interest money in our politics. It is a major victory for big oil, Wall Street banks, health insurance companies and the other powerful interests that marshal their power every day in Washington to drown out the voices of everyday Americans. This ruling gives the special interests and their lobbyists even more power in Washington–while undermining the influence of average Americans who make small contributions to support their preferred candidates. That’s why I am instructing my Administration to get to work immediately with Congress on this issue. We are going to talk with bipartisan Congressional leaders to develop a forceful response to this decision. The public interest requires nothing less.

I wonder how the “populist” Republican tea baggers will respond?  After all, the say they are against Wall Street and the powerful self interest groups that silence the voice of the average American. Get ready for another giant tsunami of hypocracy.

  1. Get ready for another giant tsunami of hypocracy….

    Sure, just like the hypocracy that occurs every time SEIU leaders plant their butts in the chairs in the Oval Office. Guess what? Your party is over.
