As the elite say, "laws are for little people".

That's not the only reason. Many members of the current administration are former Goldman Sachs employees and executives. Also, Paulsen from Bush's admin was a former GS executive. That's why Paulsen favored the bailouts. Even worse than that, the current Treasury Secretary, Geithner, was thick as thieves with GS when he was with the NY Fed giving them .1% interest loans. He helped gain approval for GS to be a commercial bank instead of investment bank or they wouldn't have qualified for the bailouts. He also previously worked for GS interests in the 1990s. Geithner is so deep in them that there will never be charges brought up against them as long as he remains Secretary of the Treasury.

Follow the link below to read more about him and GS.

Is anyone still confused about why money needs to be removed from government?

Is anyone still confused about conflict of interest in Office?

Is anyone still confused about removing corpoRATist's from Office?

Follow the money it always knows the flavor of corruption where ever it grows.

Yet, the U.S. Justice Department sees fit to go after Sergei Aleynikov for the second time.

Aleynikov allegedly stole computer code from Goldman when he left the company a few years ago. Apparently, it's O.K. for Goldman to steal from honest investors, but it is not O.K. for anyone to steal from Goldman.
