“After beating up Wall Street ‘fat cats,’ President Obama ready to take their money in NY fund-raiser”
After beating up on Wall Street fat cats the last month, Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi will attend a swank high-dollar fundraiser at the St. Regis hotel on Thursday after speaking to factory workers in Buffalo.
And, it seems like it was just yesterday that he was bashing Wall Street fat cats to the media.
The New York Daily News reported:
President Obama has been happy to beat up on Wall Street “fat cats,” but tonight he’ll be even happier to take their money.
The President is slated to headline a superswank, $50,000-per-couple fund-raiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee at Manhattan’s gilded St. Regis hotel on Fifth Ave.
The high-dollar affair will feature fine French food, a bevy of Wall Street titans and 23 Congress members – including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
Not everyone is thrilled that Obama and Pelosi are looking to use New York as a campaign ATM at the same time that they are trying to rein in Wall Street, the city’s biggest job and tax generator by far.
At least one ex-congressional campaign committee giver said he’s decided to boycott the event and will send his money to the GOP instead.
“I’m a New Yorker first,” said the once loyal Dem, who asked to remain anonymous out of fear of inciting the White House. “We are depending on our congresspeople to defend New York, not to just go along with Nancy Pelosi for the ride.”
