Last week, I joined a group of about 60 99 percent CME Group shareholders to attend CME's annual meeting. Our mission? To share personal stories of how corporate welfare has devastated our families and communities.
Given both its immense power and its history, we would be wise to keep an eye on CME Group. There has never been a better time to stand up to this powerful company and demand that it give our money back.
Craig Donohue of CME didn't seem to mind the public spotlight when drumming up support for millions in tax breaks. But he was somewhat less enthusiastic when Chicago's 99% shone a not-so-flattering spotlight on CME from 1,000 miles away.
