Bailout thick with corporate thievery

Though it may be true that there is honor among thieves, there is no honor among corporate thieves, especially in the financial sector.

They chose to take the $700 billion in taxpayer money the current administration gave them ... and run with it: raises, bonuses, platinum parachutes and, of course, buying more assets to help their bottom lines.

The best answer that Neel Kashkari, the Treasury Department official overseeing the bailout plan, could come up with was that there were no strings attached to the bailout plan because, well, it would keep the financial institutions from participating.

Now is that a political/corporate criminal or what?

Be sure to let the current class of corporate politicians know what you think of the $700 billion bailout.

Don’t forget to vote.
