Veteran reporter Robert Scheer writes today:
The federal government works for Goldman and not for us.
Is Scheer’s claim over the top?
Well, the assistant secretary of the Treasury under Reagan (and former senior Wall Street Journal editor) Paul Craig Roberts agrees with Scheer, saying that Treasury Secretary Geithner “works for Goldman Sachs”, and not the American public:
Interviewer: Does the treasury secretary work for the people or does he work for the banking system on Wall Street?
Roberts: He works for Goldman Sachs.
