    Republicans giving Citigroup HELL for discriminating against GUN OWNERS.....

    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...-policy-464518

    Though a growing number of corporate titans are distancing themselves from firearms, Citi’s decision got under the skin of conservatives in Congress who are trying to fend off new gun control measures. It annoyed Republicans who have supported deregulatory measures that will help the bank, even after the government rescued it from near-collapse during the 2008 Wall Street meltdown.

    "The very fact that Citi remains operational is due entirely to the generosity of the American taxpayers," Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) said in a scathing letter to Citigroup CEO Michael Corbat. "Please don’t forget that.”

    Republicans are now taking aim at Citigroup’s government contracts and warning that they'll think twice about helping the lender the next time it needs assistance from Congress.

    Citi representatives have been on Capitol Hill in recent days to address the brewing controversy.
    So those of you who squawk that "Republicans and Democrats are the same" have to think about this..... WOULD DEMOCRATS ever fight on the behalf of GUN OWNERS?

    I thought so.

    I wouldn't call it "the generosity of the american taxpayer", more like the bought and paid for politicians who squander our money, not real keen on the idea of bailing out financial institutions that mis-manage their business.

    I suffered some setbacks in my contracting business about 20 years ago, i didn't ask .gov for a bailout ( could have,but didn't ) took out a 2nd mortgage on my house and worked my ass off to get through the hard times.

    It is good to see this reaction by the republicans, someone needs to remind the incompetent fucks who their daddy is

    Heard on the Beck today, that Bank of America has joined CitiBank in their anti-2A stance.

    While Americans control the house just cancel all contracts with the bastards.
    "What sick, barbaric bastards.

    It's one thing to use terrorism to make a political statement, but the wanton mutilation and suffering of innocents? How does that forward your political goals? When done in the name of religion, how does that earn you brownie points with God?

    Fuck religious extremism. And especially fuck the "religion of peace." "

    So, lagcsocialist supports terrorism AS LONG AS ITS FOR POLITICAL ENDS....

    I have a NRA-branded Visa from "First Bank". When I called last week, they couldn't tell me if they were going to drop the association for sure or not. Waiting to see.

    The Democraps have already declared themselves our enemy. There's nothing much left to talk about. They can't be honest in word or deed. They either back down or they get smeared across the battlefield that they've provoked.
