‘Wolves’ of Wall Street want deregulation

Everyone knows about investment advisor Bernie Madoff, who perpetrated the largest financial fraud in U.S. history.

Now comes along Martin Shkreli, who raised the price of the drug Daraprim by 5,556 percent and was later arrested on securities fraud charges.

Jordan Belfort, the real-life “Wolf of Wall Street,” admits, “The drug use and the stuff with the hookers and the sales assistants and the sex in the office (in the movie about him) … is really, really accurate.”

Scumbags are really sociopaths/narcissists who dupe and manipulate people without remorse.

For obvious reasons they utilize the advantages of capitalism and democracy in their rise to the top of their corporations or in politics.

They would like nothing more than a deregulated, laissez-faire government — or as Adam Brandon, president and CEO of FreedomWorks, writes “Our members all share three common traits: a desire for less government, lower taxes, and more economic freedom.” (aka less regulation).

FreedomWorks is an offshoot of David H. and Charles G. Koch’s Citizens for a Sound Economy, the Tea Party’s main funding source.

I can visualize all these wolves of Wall Street dancing on their hind legs at the very mention of lower taxes and less regulation.
