Senator Elizabeth Warren took to Facebook to sum up the gall and hypocrisy of the ruling class, nicely explaining the audacity of Jeb Bush and former AIG CEO Hank Greenberg in a plain-spoken, excoriating 2paragraphs. Here’s the post from January 8, 2016:
“So let’s get this straight: CEO Hank Greenberg ran AIG as it recklessly gambled on mortgage-backed securities – and left just before his company took a $182 billion bailout from the Bush Administration. Once his Republican friends were out of office, Greenberg sued the Obama Administration because – get this – the bailout wasn’t generous enough for him. And now, Hank Greenberg is giving $10 million of his AIG fortune to try to save Jeb Bush’s dying Presidential campaign.
“I’m not sure what’s more disgusting: That Jeb Bush is pinning his Presidential hopes on his brother’s bailout money, or that bailed-out CEOs are trying to buy elections. This is business as usual for Wall Street and Washington insiders, and it stinks.”
