Quote of the Day – 4.3.09


From Barack Obama, at a meeting with bank CEOs last week:

“My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks.”

That’s what FDR said too, and the captains of industry didn’t believe him either.  But he was right, and for better or worse, Obama probably is too.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
