Ted Rall for February 05, 2009
Bankers: They gave it to us! No strings attached! Of course! We wear suits. Woman: Don't use your newfound riches for luxuries like electricity, and no candles! Sunlight is free! Man: Skip! Boy: Daddy! Woman: Bailout money isn't for cable V, you mooches! Man: Yo, bank queen! You buyin' that non-generic mac 'n' cheese with MY money?! Bankers collect billions of dollars in corporate welfare. Why not treat them the same way we treat other welfare recipients? Welfare recipients get just $110 a week for a family of 3, yet the government watches them like a hawk. They fill out countless forms. They wait in long lines. Caseworkers visit their homes and steal their kids. And don't forget the dirty looks.
