Lloyd Blankfein, money-grubbing corporate CEO a-hole

30 Jan

Remember way back when (a whopping 2 years ago), when Goldman Sachs took billions in tax payer dollars to keep itself from having a Going out of Business sale? You woulda thought that the handout we gave these corporate panhandlers would have made them a little more humble, a little less Gordon Gekko. Well guess again, suckers. In a year when GS basically broke even, Lloyd and 369 of his partners all got raises. And we’re not talking cost of living increases here, folks. The salary of these hobos in designer suits: anywhere from $2 million to $600,000. And that’s not counting the bonuses these folks are getting. The top five officers will also get $12.6 million each in bonuses. That’s up from $9 million each last year.  Doubt we’ll see any of that cash trickle down to the millions of Americans who gave them the money in the first place. Because as we all know, a-holes don’t pay back their debts.
