TARP Money Used Against Labor

-- by Dave Johnson

Bailout Recipients Hosted Call To Defeat Key Labor Bill,

Three days after receiving $25 billion in federal bailout funds, Bank of America Corp. hosted a conference call with conservative activists and business officials to organize opposition to the U.S. labor community's top legislative priority.
HOW much of OUR money was used for lobbying against our interests, funding conservative causes, etc?

We may never know. THANKS to all the Democratic members of the House and Senate who voted to hand this money over to Bush with few restrictions or requirements or transparency written into the legislation. The TARP bill should have banned all lobbying of any kind by any corporation receiving TARP funds. Good job!
