Bernie Sanders Chews Alan Greenspan’s Ass

This is one of the most satisfying political videos I think I’ve ever seen. Bernie Sanders, in 2003, whomping Alan Greenspan at a congressional hearing. Man, that’s an ass chewing. That’s gotta hurt.

  1. Steve, many thanks.

    As a result of TRILLIONS in federal welfare they get, “the Wall Street bonus pool for last year is roughly double the total earnings of all Americans who work full time at the federal minimum wage.”

    “…Let’s start with the Wall Street bonuses. The New York State Comptroller reported on Wednesday that the size of the bonus pool paid to securities industries employees in New York City was $28.5 billion. Dividing this total among 167,800 workers yields an average bonus of $172,860, which seems plausible enough. For sure, some received much, much bigger bonuses, and many received nothing.

    What about the total earnings of full-time workers at the federal minimum wage? The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that there are 1.03 million full-time workers paid an hourly wage of $7.25 or less. These people tend to work around 40 hours a week on average. If they all earn $7.25 per hour and work 50 weeks per year, the total earnings of this group come to nearly $15 billion. Ms. Anderson, whose report usefully shows all her work, prefers an estimate of 37 hours per week — which looks too low to me based on other data — and 52 weeks per year, so after rounding, she gets to a total of $14 billion.

    ICYMI, in May Notre Dame published a report detailing the breakdown in ethics on Wall Street, also a surge in suicides.

    “Many on Wall Street Say It Remains Untamed.”

  2. Atta boy, Bernie!

    While I am a Hillary supporter, I’m pleased to see her get strong competition which will sharpen the issues and spread the progressive agenda to more voters. May the best man, er, woman win!

  3. Love to see a Presidential debate between Bernie and Scotty…
