  • Maybe a bad choice of words coming from a senator, but he only said what some people were thinking these people should do with themselves. I would rather see them poverty stricken myself to see how the other half lives. Greedy bastards.

  • I understand harsh words to them, but SUICIDE..That's crossing the me anyway

  • Yes, it was too much.

    Suicide is a very serious thing, and for him to offer it as a suggestion is insane.

  • well I don't think they should commit suicide, they should be punished and made to serve time in jail, and loose their assets.

  • Look at who they are, they'd probably prefer option 2.

  • I agree, "suicide" is crossing the line. It shows a total lack of character and zero class.

    Personally, I think it is hilarious that they are griping so much about it. What did they expect when they started giving away money? It seems to me they aren't much smarter than the "unscrupulous" lenders they have also griped about.

  • They didn't just give money away they gave money away without any preconditions and are now adding them retroactively even though the bill states that contractual bonuses from before Feb 09 are exempt.

    Congress is using this as a red herring to distract the people from their porkulous bill which is very unpopular and mess they are making of our economy and our economic future.
