Republicans fighting for banks to profit from laundering Mexican drug money

"WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama's financial overhaul law is nearly a year old. For congressional Republicans, the fight to weaken it is just starting.
Wary of trying to repeal the entire statute and being portrayed as Wall Street's protectors – banks rank among the country's least popular institutions – GOP lawmakers are trying to nibble away at the behemoth measure. It's a crusade they're waging despite lacking the White House and Senate control they need to prevail."

It is clear that the congressional GOP members are trying to make it easier for banks to make profits without regulations that limit their ability to launder drug money for the Mexican and Columbian drug cartels. At the same time, these GOP members are against any laws designed to decriminalize or legalize recreational drugs so that their financial benefactors (the banks) can continue to profit from laundering drug money. At the same time, the gun lobby is making a profit from all the guns we sell south of the border that is resulting in killing tens of thousands in our drug war.

While the middle class is paying for the drug war with the cartels and the bankers and Wall Streeters are making billions laundering drug money and the gun makers are making millions selling guns, the Middle Class is required to continue paying billions every year to incarcerate tens of thousands of Blacks and Latinos for drug possession of anywhere from a gram to kilos while the real criminals in the banks and on Wall Street go stock free. Protected by their friends, those family value loving good Evangelicals in the Tea Bagger GOP.

Don't you just love America, the Christian Nation.
