Obama's buddies making some dough

So, a couple days ago it was published that George Soros had just invested $811 million in Petrobras, a Brazilian oil company and that the government had just loaned Brazil $2 billion for petroleum exploration.  All that while the petroleum industry in the US suffers thanks to regulatory oppression and environmentalist whackjobs.  Unemployment in the US petroleum industry soars, while we throw $2 billion to Brazil and also allow a hedge fund manager (Hey, I thought hedge funds were evil) that happened to donate millions of dollars to groups that support him to profit.  Yeah, that's change I can believe in.

And now a published report by AP of all people, usually hard-core in the tank for Obama, shows that several groups that supported Obama during the election, stand to profit from his health-care reform proposals.


But remember, no lobbyists or big corporations will have any influence in this presidency.
