Is Robert Rubin pushing Obama to go easy on Wall Street?


Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi argues in a new article, "Obama's Big Sellout," that President Obama's advisors are undermining his campaign promises for change by forcing him to do the bidding of Wall Street.

Obama's most powerful advisors are reportedly under the sway of former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, who has many acolytes sprinkled throughout the administration. Taibbi essentially argues that these advisors are Rubin's puppets. Other advisors, progressives who want to protect the little guy and fundamentally change how Washington works, have been marginalized.
