Howard Shultz, $30b Welfare Recipient

Dana Milbank at the Washington Post is very correct to trash Howard Shultz, former CEO of Bear Sterns, and members of the Senate banking committee.

Fortunately for Schwartz, he had a sympathetic audience in the banking committee, whose members have received more than $20 million in campaign contributions from the securities and investment industry, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. “I want the witnesses to know, and others, that as a bottom-line consideration, I happen to believe that this was the right decision,” Chairman Chris Dodd (D-$5,796,000) said before hearing a single word of testimony.

Where do I sign up for this plan? Oh, you have to pay off contribute to the senators’ war chests first. I get it.
