Now buddy is budding up to the protesters GOP presidential candidate Buddy Roemer.
Joining the occupy Wall Street demonstrators in New York today not only see a Republican is also for a bank CEO.
Is not the gentleman you'd expect to support those guys Buddy Roemer joins me now says sir you joined occupy Wall Street -- I -- what I went down to it to see what they were doing.
-- know that's rare for politicians actually listening.
I -- DC why they were there because.
I loved your questions to Harris and those questions that need to be worked out.
Not only why are we there about how do we handle ourselves and going to private home scary I don't think that's a good idea.
If those people lived in a public home.
Like a present at the White House -- the mayor wherever the mayor and if it's good to protest every time I go to the White House when I was a congressman.
All Reagan was the president and there were protesters all around it that's -- that's public property.
But the issue bit intrigue me.
Is the reason -- run for president.
I think Washington DC.
And the decision makers.
Or ball consoles.
-- special interest money.
In fact four years ago for president.
More money was given -- a lobbyist and pacs and Washington.
To John McCain and Barack Obama.
And the reason you have such.
Crony capitalism that's a good way to put it.
What is essentially socialism will it's essentially exactly except it's for the few that's -- it's not for the many -- the opposite.
It's for the few who've given the big checks how I'm the only -- running for president who's been a member of congress -- -- don't and governor of the state.
And built at bank two thirds of a billion dollars in size no bailout money profitable bank.
We're not in the political business where the jobs business and I think America's in trouble lives and I think the reason it's in trouble is that we -- now run.
About one or 2%.
Of the big cats and corporate interest and their interest are not the same thing as the average American now.
How we change.
How would regulate.
The money given to politicians here's what I've done.
I accept no pac money.
I didn't as governor I didn't is congressman the only congressman not to take -- -- -- hundred dollar limit and I have a full disclosure.
What is would you deliver would you -- and by the way President Obama got a lot of his money from Internet donations from the DS -- -- -- and best part of this campaign I really like so that it even if in other words if you try to crack down on us and what you're suggesting.
There -- ways to get around.
Under Obama threat but not under -- rules we fully disclose every doll with a name and address.
I've got a company -- let me let me just back up and if you carry a funny story about on a go ahead contribution today on Wall Street.
It was one doll with a positive hockey take it and -- and this little -- -- it.
Well how I want to give Yahoo! like your campaign I like your guts for being and he's -- hate -- -- okay.
Give me your name.
Address and phone number.
And we'll wrap it around the dollar mobile and -- to speed oh quickly you -- why would why would any company higher under this environment when the government's gonna take half of the money that you -- via taxes.
Especially -- to help reform kicks them.
-- -- isn't it isn't that was the problem the -- should do -- -- yeah Washington eight should be in Washington okay.
But Wall Street he's connected you don't watch Wall Street has bought Washington that is an area and that.
