SEIU Calls Out Bank of America on TARP money

The SEIU is starting a campaign against Bank of America. Help Workers or Give the Money Back:

SEIU is insisting that Bank of America use its taxpayer-funded windfall to support a real economic recovery and provide health care for its 247,000 workers—or give the money back


I can add to the SEIU's demands. BoA should stop offshore outsourcing American jobs and making loans to illegal immigrants on terms that any U.S. citizen would never get! (like not having to prove any income at all or any identity!).

The SEIU organized a protest and has a slideshow of it on flicker (in the link).

This seems like a worthy use of the unions time. I've been wondering the same damn thing. Why is it U.S. taxpayer money is being used to bail out these private institutions yet U.S. citizens, consumers and workers are not getting any conditions or terms?

Ultimately this is a politica problem...

....the corrupt Democrat Party, yes Virginia Pelousy & Co. are no better than the worst Republican, has allowed the looting of the Treasury to continue unabated.

Billions gone yet NO help for overstressed homeowners. The numbers of foreclosure sales, some folks to have cash, in LA last month was astounding. And yet Obama & Co. propose a totally insufficient 100 Billion for a housing 'bailout'.

They can tax cut all they want but I say the economy cannot turn around until the housing mess is cleaned up.

I disagree

Ultimately, to me, it's a systemic problem. It's all related to the dual crimes of usury and fractional reserve banking- EVERYTHING else comes from allowing those two frauds to prey on our society.
