Back in 2008, financial services companies, Goldman Sachs in particular, loved the Democrat Party and then-Senator Barack Obama.
“[E]mployees of New York-based Goldman gave three-fourths of their
campaign donations to Democratic candidates and committees, including
presidential nominee Barack Obama,” Bloomberg reports.
But then something happened. He got elected.
After the 2008 presidential election, members of the financial community were no longer valued donors but were instead “fat cats” who don’t pay their “fair share” or “play by the rules.” And then the White House condoned and coddled that whole “Let’s Destroy Capitalism” Occupy Wall Street thing.
