Another Cavuto Moment – Regulate Pay

Cavuto is one of a kind. Now this is how you hold a politicians feet to the fire. Go get em tiger! Didn’t get this yesterday and I should have … it’s a long interview with the Florida Congressman who introduced the bill that would regulate any salary of any employee of any company that gets bailout money. I thought Cavuto was reasonable in the beginning and the Congressman was particularly slimy avoiding the question. Neil reminds him that we pay his salary and he should answer the question. Then it turns ugly. Yea!

    The arrogance of these people is beyond my personal imagination.  He wants to limit the pay of people that steal from us?  How about he starts with government?

    God Bless General Cavuto. We need an army of conservatives who are willing to speak up and get mad. Really mad. That is the only way we are going to win this war without going to jail.

    Cavuto is doing the work that the rest of the media should be doing, and are too lazy and partisan to bother to do themselves.

    Is it too much to expect the Congress to know and honor the contents of the Constitution they swear to uphold?  Is it too much to expect them to actually have a working knowledge, or hire staff that do, of the Constitution?  Obviously it is.  That Congressman is an pathetic embarrassment, and should be smart enough to know he is too uninformed (to be kind) to appear on a show like that where real answers, answers he should have answers to, are asked.

    The part I don't get in all of this is that, while they may be excessive, the bonuses paid to AIG employees is part of a LOAN that was given to AIG, which, presumably will be repaid.  Therefore, how is the US government out of any money?  Unless the Feds know that AIG is never going to repay the "loan"……

    Also, if the Feds intend to "recoup" this money via targeted taxation, will that not create a windfall, since they will also recoup it via loan repayment.

    Let's everyone keep their eyes on the real issues re: Obama's true agenda.

    Rob P  nailed it.  Just like you and I.  When we borrow money, either thru Credit Card, Home Equity Loan, Personal Loan, etc., we use the money to purchase what we need or desire, knowing we have to re-pay that loan.

    Could you see your Credit Card issuer saying we can buy this, but not that?  Real World out here.
