Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs testified before Congress telling them what’s wrong with the country and how to fix it. Blankfein, who is paid $ 16 MILLION a year, whose company was bailed out by the taxpaying working men and women of this country*, said that poor people and old people have it far too easy. They just have to tighten their belts and make do with less. In Blankfein’s opinion, Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid must be slashed! It’s time to “lower expectations” the Money Man said.
As Bernie Sanders said in response, Blankfein’s attack on working and retired people is what REAL “Class Warfare” is all about.
* Goldman Sachs received $ 814 BILLION in almost-Zero interest loans from the Federal Reserve and $ 10 BILLION from the U.S. Treasury. While his company took a 47% dive, Blankfein was rewarded with a 14% INCREASE in compensation. That’s the way you do it, it ain’t workin’, money for nothin’ . . .
