What's Good for the AIG is Good for the Frank.
Barney Frank has pulled the ultimate in hypocritical moves this week. It would be most hilarious if it wasn't true. Barney stated his desire to regulate the salaries of ALL employees at companies that receive bail out funds from the government. The steaming pile is called the "Pay for Performance Act of 2009." Oh, the delicious irony. You see, Mr. Frank makes about $200,000 per year for his job as a U.S. Congressman. Just like bail out funds, his salary is tax payer funded. And just like a lot of the companies that received money, he has failed us. So, I think he should be judged by his performance and we should regulate his salary by sending him home in the next election. Sad thing is that he would continue to collect his salary and benefits, all voted on by himself and other members without consulting tax payers, for the rest of his days. What a hypocrite?
