The revolving door between banking lobbyists and the Senate's banking committee started spinning just moments ago.

At around 9:45 this morning, the senior economic policy advisor for Montana's Senator Jon Tester announced that he is leaving his position on Capitol Hill for a new job at The Glover Park Group, a Democrat-oriented lobbyist firm.

But don't get distracted by party affiliation here. This is not about progressive policy versus free markets. It's about banking.

We really are doomed. This Washington/ Wall St combination is beyond the power of any reform movement to clean it up. To cut out a cancer there has to be healthy flesh somewhere. Just try to call a Constitutional Convention & see how fast the military would join the party. It's all over. Permalink
