Hold the happy-talk, Keith - Jim Himes is a Corporatist, not unlike Eric Cantor, and not a representative of the people of the 4th district. Cantor has been roundly criticized as someone who grew to represent the Chamber of Commerce and Wall St. rather than his constituents. In the process he raised the ire of both free-market grassroots conservatives and anti-corporate progressives. If you've been watching the LTEs, this is happening in CT-4.
Jim Himes, member of the House Financial Services Committee, Finance Chair of the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee, and former Goldman Sachs banker was asked his view of Cantor's defeat. Himes said Cantor's defeat means the banking industry has "lost somebody who had an innate understanding of their issues. For the broader business community, I think this is a real loss."
Funny, Himes's first thoughts focus on the dangling needs of the banking industry rather than on the basic requirement of his job. Mr. Himes reveals where his sympathies lie - with the Crony Corporatist Elite he serves so well.
Jim Himes is a corporatist in the mold of Eric Cantor. Within three months of ascending to the Finance Chair of the DCCC in the spring of 2013, he shepherded a bill, HR 1256, exempting broad swaths of derivatives from the Dodd-Frank law through the House Financial Services Committee, over the objections of the Treasury Dept. Democrat campaign coffers were richly rewarded for the favor.
In just six years our congressman has firmly ensconced himself in the Washington elite as a corporatist rainmaker, making sure the Democrat Party is well showered with hefty campaign donations in exchange for legislation favored by his true constituents in the Chamber of Commerce, the hedge funds and the banks… all at the expense of the free market and the taxpayers.
Just like so many other Washington creatures, he has abandoned us, his constituents, for the greener pastures of Wall Street, K Street and the salons of Washington's well-heeled corporate elites. Mr. Himes is cruising for a reckoning - let's hope it's this November 4th.
