Power grabs

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

Re: July 15 ar­ti­cle “GOP sees po­lit­i­cal ben­e­fit in block­ing fi­nan­cial over­haul.”

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, should know that the power grabs that Amer­i­cans are tired of are the ones that put more power in the hands of bankers and less in the hands of tax­pay­ers. The fi­nan­cial over­haul bill is sup­posed to give us the power to help avoid global eco­nomic melt­down in the fu­ture. That’s good for us, the vot­ers.

Leav­ing the power to de­stroy the econ­omy in the hands of highly paid bankers and bro­kers is the kind of thing Amer­i­cans are ac­tu­ally find­ing ex­tremely tire­some.
