They want to chain the CPI? Then Stop Goldman Sachs and Koch from Speculating on our Food and Gas

I in no way support cutting SS at all.

However, the reason our cost of living has gone sky high is the speculation that Goldman Sachs introduced so they could start gaming our food prices, making themselves more money playing the market, while we all get the shaft.

About the same time, the Koch brothers introduced speculating on oil which has driving the cost of gas sky high, which benefits the Koch brothers tremendously.




The amount that seniors would lose in the CPI is dwarfed by the amount we are already being overcharge for food, gas, heat.

Imagine how much more government costs thanks to Koch and Goldman driving the cost of everything though the roof for their own personal profit.

We have not always had speculation on our commodities, recent deregulations have allowed this blatant theft from everyone.

Not only are we starving people in this country, What Goldman is doing on our stock market is driving the starvation of million around the world, and we are responsible, we must do something about this.

We can end speculation, just as easily as they started it, by public awareness and our uniting to demand that our politicians end this BS.

And it can start on the internet since it is the only place the truth comes out these days.

Please help raise awareness with a kick and a rec- Thank you!

4. not only should we demand they take it off the table

 


We should be making a helluva a lot more demands than just ending the Bush tax cuts.

Corporations are ripping us off, just look at their record profits, speculation is making the Koch brothers wealth increase 800% so they can buy off our government. The whole thing is out of control.

Nothing we are currently paying for should even cost this much and they are trying to squeeze every last bit out of us- then what? Where will they get their record profits? These aren't your brightest bulbs ripping us off so we should be able to stop them.
