The Last Straw? Ex-Goldman exec caught lobbying on Capitol Hill w/ diff. name

  1. Two things about this.

    1)Peter Haller pulled this risky stunt to lobby for Goldman Sachs ability to exclude others from trading derivatives. If GS faces competition in derivatives it faces reductions in its vaunted record of making $100 million dollars a day trading.

    2)What must Peter Haller have been offered to forgo a $12 million dollar Goldman Sachs annual salary to make - what? - $115,000 a year as a lobbyist? His compensation for this year's service in the "Peter Simyoni fraud" or (the "Peter Haller fraud"), must be listed on the appropriate political disclosures, or IRS documents at least. He ain't gettin' just a lobbyist's salary for this scam.

    Disgusting, and Issa put himself out there as competent fixer of the corruption. Just another pig.

    I would say two things. 1) Congress is slime, obvious. 2) These governments hacks have no idea what they are doing,and rely too much on lobbyists for information. They are easily fooled.

    Your point about what the GS "operative" really makes is a good one. Who knows.

    We need to take note of how these kinda folks were dealt with during the French revolution.
  4. 70 Virgins and an endless swimming pool in a remote tropical island. Drinks and meals on the house. Rent is free.

    Hell... I'd go for it.
