Should you trust the financial advisor calling your retirement planning shots or the political hacks who insist that you are a victim being taken for a ride? If protecting your hard-earned money from greedy financial planners is your goal, the Federal Government seems like an unlikely guardian.
A pack of cowardly hypocrites just sold out their hero president, betrayed their agenda, lied to the American people, and it all happened in one day over a trade bill.
