President Obama today said it was “the height of irresponsibility” for financial corporations to have doled out $18 billion in bonuses to their employees in a year when many banks shed jobs and turned to the government for funds.
What a change from the previous administration. Obama is using the bully pulpit to send messages and he just told Wall Street their piggish behavior is no longer acceptable. Expect shrieks of anguish from the bloated porkers.
As an added bonus, the above quote was posted on the White House blog. Wow, we have a president who actually lives in the 21st century.
