  •  Why do people propose nonsense like this: (0+ / 0-)

    "While I’m at it: impose a retroactive tax of 100 percent on all non-salary compensation of every executive of every financial institution that received federal bailout money. It might not prevail in the ensuing litigation, but it would be amusing to watch them squirm."

    Obviously this would get struck down in the courts within fifteen minutes.  What's the point, other than to waste time and taxpayer money?

      It is the same point Elizabeth Warren makes. I certainly don't consider Elizabeth Warren's energy a waste of time and taxpayer money. Do you?

      I would love nothing more than for Warren to design a plea bargain strategy for the shysters that would accept a retroactive tax of 100 percent in lieu of prison time.
