Blame Dodd attacks Ignore Facts

I’ve sat and listened to people accusing Dodd of just about everything but shoveling money to AIG Execs. No, I’ve seen that too. I’m not a big fan of Senator Dodd, but the truth needs to come out. Last night, MSNBC did a before and after segment of Republican speeches that was highly informative, on the Rachel Maddow Show. Anyway, turns out it was the same Repubs gritching about these bonuses, were the ones speaking out against this kind of regulation on companies accepting bail out funds. The hypocrisy was so thick you could cut it with a knife, and that’s not even considering their insistence on autoworkers contracts being torn up, to get federal funds. Apparently, if you’re wealthy, Republicans protect you, if you’re not…chit out of luck. They and the BA were the ones that insisted contractual bonuses not be regulated, Mitch McConnell was just one of many. Now…… today, in the house Republicans split 85 to 87 not to tax those bonuses back into the taxpayers coffers. What? Could there be bigger flip flopping in all of politics?
