Remember all the bitching last week from the ponies on the Hill saying, “how dare, how dare the banks give out bonuses?’ Do you remember all of the showmanship? It makes me want to puke. Well all of the banks that gave out bonuses to their overpaid executives also gave out campaign donations to the same actors on the Hill.
Our congress people take our money from US. Then they give it to the bankers. Then the bankers give the congresspeople kickbacks in the form of campaign donations. What a piece of crap this is.
The people are going to rise up. There will be one catalyst event that just pushes it over the edge, the stick that breaks the camel’s back sort to speak.
“…the political action committees of five big TARP recipients doled out $85,300 to members in the first two months of this year—with most of the cash going to those who serves on committees who oversee the TARP program. Among them: Bank of America (which got $15 billion in bailout money) sent out $24,500 in the first two months of 2009, including $1,500 to House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and another $15,000 to members of the House and Senate banking panels. Citigroup ($25 billion) dished out $29,620, including $2,500 to House GOPWhip Eric Cantor, who also got $10,000 from UBS…”
They just don’t get it.
