sigma-x asked: "Obama is funded by the same industries that he claims to oppose"--since when did Obama oppose the retired, the lawyers, and the teachers? I thought you had meant Wall Street, but they're not on any of the lists of top donors.
Microsoft, Time Warner, Wells Fargo, Comcast, Google. Those aren’t examples of big business?
Let’s also not forget his cabinet and other high end positions in his administration. Geoffrey Emelt, CEO of GE is on his cabinet for crying out loud. Under the Orwellian title of Chair of his “Jobs and Competitiveness Committee.”
You’ll remember GE didn’t pay any taxes in 2010.
I’d say his campaign/administration are definitely entrenched in the establishment. He may not be getting the Wall Street donations he got in 2008, but according to Politifact he’s getting at least a third of it from the financial/insurance/security sectors.
