Democrats Who Voted For The Cromnibus Received Double The Money From Wall Street Than “No” Voters (ZeroHedge, Dec 13, 2014):

It should come as no surprise that Republicans would be willing to vote for a bill that seeks to indemnify Wall Street from future failure. After all, Wall Street’s proximity to the GOP, and vice versa, is hardly a contentious issue. And yet, it was “only” 162 republicans who voted for the Cromnibus – some 67 voted against. Which means that whipping the 57 democrats who also voted for the Bill to get the crucial 218 passing votes was far more critical to assure passage of the swaps push out provision.  What exactly motivated those 57 Democrats to break ranks with the rest of their party – the 139 democrats voted against the spending bill – and to be not only on the receiving end of Elizabeth Warren’s ire, but also accountable for dumping a few hundred trillions of derivatives into the laps of US taxpayers. The answer, what else: money.
