I admit that I know very little about Iowa Republican Chuck Grassley, but after he suggested that AIG executives do a little seppuku on themselves rather than accept their $165 million worth of unearned bonuses. Now he’s on about these greedy pigs “sucking the tit” of people like you and me.
“From my standpoint, it’s irresponsible for corporations to give bonuses at this time when they’re sucking the tit of the taxpayer,” Grassley explained.
Grassley continued to express his displeasure with the company that is distributing $165 million in bonuses over lawmakers’ objections. He said executives should not be rewarded for running their corporation into the ground.
I’m not sure this is the most appropriate way for a U.S. Senator to be talking, but I kind of like it.
