Wouldn't Jesus vote against the money-changers in the temple?

Just asking. But remember the only time when Jesus got angry in the New Testament? When all the money-changers ripping off the working poor had taken over the temple? And he screamed and flipped out and told them all to leave?

Wouldn't that mean that Jesus would vote against anyone who supported the money-changers? And that would be the payday loan industry and the big-time blue chip banks that own them?

I think Obama was a leader in the Senate on trying to regulate the payday loan industry, but I can't recall. He was certainly a supporter if not the prime mover. And I'd guess Jesus would probably like that in a public official.
