The cozy relationship between our elected officials and big money in corporate America is not new and may be responsible for most of the corruption in politics today. Republican presidential candidateis staying true to form along this theme. He keeps preaching that he is the answer to what ails America but his actions tell another story.
A multimillioniare himself, with off-shore accounts in the Caribbean and Switzerland, this one-percenter is sure cozy with one of the key players in the financial collapse.

Apparently Romney doesn't see anything unethical about this, for he has reportedly attended a fund-raiser at the home of one of these billionaires responsible for the financial meltdown.

Paulson is a pivotal player in the collapse of the housing market for he made a fortune at the expense of the American economy, pushing those fraudulent subprime mortgages--which ended up costing taxpayers billions of dollars in bailouts with no one punished.

Meanwhile his buddy Romney has vowed to turn back whatever little regulations President Obama has managed to squeeze out of Washington since the financial collapse.
Is reversing regulations, already weak to begin with, Romney's way of ensuring his big campaign donator keeps making billions?
