Well, I have it on good authority that all they have to do is renounce their wish and all the bad stuff simply un-happens.

Mnuchin has been awfully quiet lately.   Where is that weasel?

Start paying regular folks more and watch everyone go back to TV and bass fishing.

They're both-sidesing it and it's only temporary.

Forgoing donations for 6 months 24 months before the next federal election.

Just a testament to courage huh?

It has more to do with how their contributions are allocated than support of either party, I suspect.

I imagine without doing any research that, unless a company specifically endorses a candidate, campaign contributions are line-itemed as "political funding" and no more.

No, they haven't changed their minds about that. At all.

How brave and honorable to hold Democrats accountable as well,  for there horrible behavior last week

/ we are living in the age of cowards and weasels

"JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs announced six-month pauses in contributions for Republicans and Democrats."

This seems reasonable, given the actions of Jan 6th. Because, heck, that was just political discourse brought on as much by one side as the other, right?

F*** off Wall St

Roughly 2 months after serious controversy would occur for any donations.

It probably looked like a pretty good deal, until the big reveal that their interests were competing with unlimited laundered Russian money.

Mercantile influence on politics is one of the defining weaknesses of human society in general and capitalism in particular.

Don't step in the bullshiat.

There ain't even an election cycle in the next 6 months SMFH...

No they aren't.  This is a PR stunt.
