Here is the full transcript of The Reformed Broker’s, (Josh Brown), rant on why the protesters are protesting down at Occupy Wall Street. Don’t think one could lay it out any better than this – it’s short and sweet and gets right to the point:

Additionally rumors of trouble paying them whenever cialis 10mg cialis 10mg they put food on payday.

In 2008, the American people were told that if they didn’t bail out the banks, there way of life would never be the same. In no uncertain terms, our leaders told us anything short of saving these insolvent banks would result in a depression to the American public. We had to do it!

At our darkest hour we gave these banks every single thing they asked for. We allowed investment banks to borrow money at zero percent interest rate, directly from the Fed. We gave them taxpayer cash right onto their balance sheets. We allowed them to suspend account rules and pretend that the toxic sludge they were carrying was worth 100 cents on the dollar. Anything to stave off insolvency. We left thousands of executives in place at these firms. Nobody went to jail, not a single perp walk. I can’t even think of a single example of someone being fired. People resigned with full benefits and pensions, as though it were a job well done.

The American taxpayer kicked in over a trillion dollars to help make all of this happen. But the banks didn’t hold up their end of the bargain. The banks didn’t seize this opportunity, this second chance to re-enter society as a constructive agent of commerce. Instead, they went back to business as usual. With $20 billion in bonuses paid during 2009. Another $20 billion in bonuses paid in 2010. And they did this with the profits they earned from zero percent interest rates that actually acted as a tax on the rest of the economy.

Instead of coming back and working with this economy to get back on its feet, they hired lobbyists by the dozen to fight tooth and nail against any efforts whatsoever to bring common sense regulation to the financial industry. Instead of coming back and working with the people, they hired an army of robo-signers to process millions of foreclosures. In many cases, without even having the proper paperwork to evict the homeowners. Instead, the banks announced layoffs in the tens of thousands, so that executives at the top of the pile could maintain their outrageous levels of compensation.

We bailed out Wall Street to avoid Depression, but three years later, millions of Americans are in a living hell. This is why they’re enraged, this why they’re assembling, this is why they hate you. Why for the first time in 50 years, the people are coming out in the streets and they’re saying, “Enough.”

The Occupy Wall Street protesters would be wise to get Josh Brown to make this speech at one of their rallys or at least disseminate the text of this call to action at their protests. Here’s someone who works in the financial sector, who actually works on Wall Street, regularly appears on CNBC, and he’s laying out exactly why the protester’s anger is completely justified.

This isn’t the only rant that The Reformed Broker has made supporting the protesters, though. He also went after Bank of America after they paid two executives $11 million after they were let go.

And The Reformed Broker is a must follow on Twitter by the way.
