UPDATE: I am told that today, the House of No Representatives passed the bill mentioned in this piece.
Not that this will even make it to the Senate, much less stand a SCOTUS test. Here’s a member of the House of No Representatives who has a bill on the table that gives the Secretary of the Treasury full authority to arbitrarily set the salaries of anybody in a company that takes bailout money. That means, at any level, with impunity, if that little twit Geithner so decides. No range in the bill. Nothing. No stopgap for anybody below a CEO either.
I want to know why we don’t get to set Geithner’s salary. And speaking of firing “CEOs”– I’ll bet plenty of people think Geithner ought to go. So far, everything he has touched has turned to……well……..shit.
Rep. Grayson is right about one thing: Cavuto is incredibly rude to him. Somebody has to finally do it. And this guy is talking about Geithner like he is actually somebody America elected and trusts. As IF any of us thinks a tax cheat, who can’t even put two words together and throws around trillions of dollars to his Goldman Sachs friends in any way he can, should be in Charge of Anything, much less in charge of destroying Capitalism and the Constitution by setting the wages of anybody he decides needs his “touch”.
This isn’t about CEOs anymore. You can just smell it.
The House of No Representatives. Truly a carnival of power-hungry dictators. No wonder the Framers gave us a Senate to put a stop to these mobsters. But then again, we have Harry, who would fit in really well in the House. Who oversees the Overseers?
“I’m from the government. I’m here to help.”.
Out of control.
Out. Of. Control.
