House Financial Services Committee’s Financial Ties to JPMorgan
- Chairman Spencer Bachus (R-AL) has received $119,000 from JPMorgan, $1,297,713 from the Commercial Banks industry, and $965,243 from the Securities and Investment industry throughout his congressional career.
- Vice Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) has received $50,962 from JPMorgan, $688,095 from the Commercial Banks industry, and $658,242 from the Securities and Investment industry throughout his congressional career.
- Three other congressional members, Rep. Robert Dold (R-IL), Rep. Steve Stivers (R-OH), and Rep. James Himes (D-CT) have received, respectively, $23,800, $70,350, and $51,450 from JPMorgan throughout their congressional careers.
- Between 2011-2012, the total amount of political contributions provided by the Securities and Investment industry to members of the House Services Financial Committee was $4,009,642.
- Rep. John Campbell (R-CA) was the Deputy Project Manager for JPMorgan’s $1 billion new headquarters on Wall Street, and was responsible for the bank’s lending portfolio in the southern cone of Latin America.
- In 2010, Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-CO) fought for an exemption for some of the country’s biggest banks from supervision by a new consumer-protection agency; soon after he received thousands in political contributions from the banks. During his 2011 campaign, Rep. Scott Garrett (R-NJ) received political contributions from 9 of the top 10 bank holding companies, including JPMorgan.
The above, sourced from an email from The Agenda Project, explains in no uncertain terms why members of both houses of congress were lining up to kiss Jamie Dimon’s well upholstered ass last week and SHOULD serve as a wake up call for those of you who just keep on voting for these damned criminals. That anyone able to at least stand upright and make mewling sounds would continue to vote for these clowns after seeing what they are doing to us and to our country is living proof that we need to cull the goddamned gene pool and right damned soon, too.
