Goldman Sachs CEO on avoiding the fiscal cliff

Lloyd Blankfein, chairman of Goldman Sachs, wants to change the entitlements. I wonder what he thinks of the entitlements they keep giving Goldman Sachs. They keep shuttling people into government, money to politicians, and more money to Goldman Sachs who gets a very thick and non-porous safety net.




Flipped and re-posted to avoid youtube censors so yous guys can discuss this a little easier.

1. What a smug little piggy.

It's not enough that he pays the least amount of taxes in the entire country, it's not enough that he is bailed out by We the People when he invests like a someone who has a gambling addiction, It's not enough he gets 0% interest loans from the Fed, it's not enough that he receives more money than some countries' GDP, it's not enough that he lives like a king while other Americans are starving, he has to attack the people who are supporting his lazy a**. And he wants your Social Security.

The little piggy can't get enough.

2. How much did he pay in taxes?

He is an enemy of the people. It's time for the wealthy to pay for their WARS and Infrastructure.
It is time for corporations to pay their slaves a living wage.

5. Probably about 19%...

I hear the top 400 was in that bracket.

The bigger concern is how this piece of shit managed to stay out of federal prison.

He certainly deserves to go there with all his Wall Street pals. They have the balls to tell America to "expect less?"

3. Holy— this guy has some nerve.

It's hard to listen to this guy, can he hear himself? Does he know how rich he is? Does he realize what he looks like scoffing smugly at Social Security?

SS never meant to support retirement? OK since we're bringing up history, Freedom and Rights were "never meant" to include blacks or women. By your logic, Lloyd, we should've kept slavery intact.

It's called "progress".

8. It's dirt bags like this that create the need for Social Security.

I always want to know what those against Social Security expect working people to do when they get to old to work.
As the so- called "job creators" they don't want to pay the type of wages that would enable workers to save, and they don't like to make payments to pensions. Plus, they destroyed the average person's home equity with all their credit defaults and derivatives. They are never going to need Social Security themselves, but don't want others who will need it to have it. There's a reason for Social Security, and you're looking at it with this asshole.

9. What do they expect?

They expect workers to just die off and leave them alone.

They expect government to drown in a bathtub.

They expect to be treated as gods while humans suffer.

4. This piece of excrement is an Enemy of the State. He himself has done more to destroy this

 

nation than any President, any Senator AND the Federal Reserve. Some of you who do what is referred to colloquially as "follow the money" already know this. When Les Miserable finally hits us this man may well find his head on a stick stuck in a patch of ground near Walk and Don't Walk. Dirt personified.
