Because corporate America has not grown past the Ivan Boesky model. That only builds bubbles to deflate them. A destructive form of business practiced by Matt Romney. You see when the top 1% want to control the world, it is not possible to accept a business model that promotes massive wealth. It is simple in the last 12 years trillions of dollars have been transferred through fraud and hostile takeover. All of the employees of this country in the 60s 70s 80s 90s that invested in pension plans have been targeted by artful takeover artists. Who use those funds to change laws to allow them to dig deeper into the inherent equity of the American taxpayer. I assume the reason the Democrats went along with this bill, there has to be something they wanted. Because once the Democrats fall away from supporting unions and workers with insurance and retirement savings plans our economy is doomed.
