Big Bosses Back Barack

Barack Obama portrays himself as a servant of the working class, but his ties to the biggest capitalists are clear. Among Obama’s top contributors are :
§    Wall Street financial houses, Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers and JP Morgan-Chase, and Citigroup, the world’s largest bank, all of whom undoubtedly liked his Senate vote against capping credit-card interest rates at 30% ;
§ Exelon Corporation, the nation’s leading nuclear-power-plant operator and Obama’s fourth largest patron, have donated $74,350 to his campaigns.
§    A leading corporate law firm, Skadden Arps — which defends major financial firms against consumer class-action suits — is one of Obama’s leading career patrons;
§    Rich Tarplin, a lobbyist for Chevron, the American Petroleum Institute, and the National Association of Manufacturers, is one of his biggest individual donors.
