A number of Republicans are coming out against the pay cap provisions for banks and companies borrowing tax payer money to stay afloat. After all have you ever tried living on $500,000 a year? Wish I could say I have.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) said that he is “one of the chief defenders of Obama on the Republican side” for the president’s efforts to reach across the aisle. But, said Inhofe, “as I was listening to him make those statements I thought, is this still America? Do we really tell people how to run [a business], and who to pay and how much to pay?

Yeah if those companies are using our tax payer money to be bailed out. James Inhofe slowly building that rickety bridge back to the ‘gilded age’.

Digg!
