"Whoever is greedy for unjust gain troubles his own household, but he who hates bribes will live." Proverbs 15:27

"Greed is not good" - Bernie Sanders

"A lot of people don't realize that the industry that gave the most money to Washington over the past few years is not the oil industry, it was not pharmaceuticals, it was consumer credit products, those are the people, the credit card companies have been giving money and they have influence... The credit industry has spent tens of millions of dollars lobbying and as their profits grow they just throw more into lobbying for how they can get laws that will make it easier and easier and easier to drain money out of the pockets of middle class families." - Senator Elizabeth Warren

The average U.S. household with debt carries $15,355 in credit card debt and $129,579 in total debt. Source: nerdwallet.com







It's no surprise that Washington is corrupt. There is a revolving door for powerful individuals between Wall Street and the White House. It's also no surprise that Hillary Clinton's top supporters are multinational banking firms.

Here are Hillary Clinton's top campaign contributors according to opensecrets.org.

1. Citigroup Inc - an American multinational investment banking and financial services corporation. By November 2008, Citigroup was insolvent, despite its receipt of $25 billion in tax-payer funded federal Troubled Asset Relief Program funds. On November 24, 2008, the US government announced a massive stimulus package for Citigroup designed to rescue the company from bankruptcy while giving the government a major say in its operations.

2. Goldman Sachs - an American multinational investment banking firm that engages in global investment banking, securities, investment management, and other financial services. "At best, it's considered a revolving door for powerful individuals between Wall Street and the White House. At worst, it's an economic coup that has been successful in infiltrating and subverting the United States federal government. And more and more, its employees and the federal government’s employees are becoming one and the same." whiteoutpress.com

3. DLA Piper - a global multinational law firm. Major practice areas: Arbitration, Banking, Competition and Trade, Corporate Crime, Corporate Finance, Employment, Energy, Government Affairs, Hospitality and Leisure, Insurance, Intellectual Property, Litigation, Mergers and Acquisitions, Pensions, Private Equity, Real Estate, Restructuring, Tax, and Technology.
