Bank CEOs meet Obama

Washington (CNNMoney) - On the second day of the federal shutdown, more than a dozen Wall Street bank chiefs met with President Obama at the White House and urged him to find resolution to the shutdown.

J.P. Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon said he "would love to see a resolution" to the government shutdown, while walking into the White House before the meeting.

    Well well well. The Masters of the Universe are getting nervous. Note how they're not seeing Boehner - they probably approve of the "tea party" agenda. Now they're calling on the President to call in some favors.

    Let it be a lesson to Democratic Presidents: don't take so much Wall Street money.

    You do realize that he's meeting with numerous CEOs and that not all of them are Dems, right? If I could only put your conservative tears in a sippy cup and carry it around with me all day...nom nom nom....

    "The CEO visit was organized by the Financial Services Forum, a trade group which represents bank chiefs. Blankfein is currently the forum's rotating chairman."

    Is this like a joke or something? I mean aren't we talking "real" America here? The true kingpins?

    These CEO's should put pressure on Boner and Cantor, not the President.

    see no resolution to this impasse, as long as the Dems refuse to negotiate anything at all.

    @thomas "Dems refuse to negotiate anything at all."

    They negotiated it already when it was passed into law!
    If Dems re-negotiated, Repubs would just say "why are the Dems not re-re-negotiating it?"
    If Dems re-re-negotiated, Repubs would just say "why are the Dems not re-re-re-negotiating it?"
    If Dems re-re-re-negotiated, Repubs would just say "why are the Dems not re-re-re-re-negotiating it?"
    You get the idea.

    As an non-US citizen, I find it illuminating that them same bi-partisan spectacle which is taking place in your capitol is reflected in your comments. Whichever party first started it does not matter. They must compromise.
    News flash! Both parties, by closing your elected government, are failing to do the jobs you hired them to do!
    There are wasting your tax money and screwing over your country instead of finding a workable compromise.

    P.S. If you want to hire me to throw away millions of dollars a day and put 800,000 people out of work for senseless bickering, please let me know. I can handle kindergarten classes so I believe I am qualified to run your country.

  15. Obama and Democrats LIED, your Healthcare System DIED

    How does one negotiate with Obama and Democrats when they have been proven liars and frauds over and over. Why do the American people keep electing these dishonest people? They belong in jail, not elected office.

    @just asking,

    "What is Obama shaking them down for now?"

    The Masters of the Universe are the ones who hijacked the original purpose of the meeting with the shutdown talk. Sounds like they're the ones shaking down HIM.

    __________________________________________
    And just who is on the Right that can be negotiated with? Boehner broke every single agreement he ever made or promised to the President. Boehner, BTW no longer seems to be in control of the House so who does the President go to, Senator Cruz perhaps?
    You're party is on fire and going down. Stop whining!

    @Not-in-the-USA

    Because you're not a citizen, you can be perhaps forgiven for not knowing what's going on. John Boehner is refusing to bring a clean CR to a vote, because it would pass. He is doing what about 40 "tea partiers" are telling him to do. So, not a "bipartisan" issue, sorry. The shutdown is entirely the GOP's responsibility.

    Any politician who's contributors profit financially do to the government shutdown should be charged with insider trading and conspiracy to commit fraud .

    Republicans love going short on America .

    Follow the MONEY !

    I would love to see who profited to most and who there supporting .

    Not In the USA- if Obama starts dealing with the Congress & Repubs. in the posture this matter presently lies, we might as well throw out Articles 1 & 2 of the Constitution. If this is how we're gonna start governing in America, then please, any aspiring Democracy out there, don't follow our example.
