    So why didn't you quote that instead of an irrelevant statement on the Warren Court?

    U.S. cuts pay at bailed out firms, BofA hits back

    U.S. cuts pay at bailed out firms, BofA hits back - Yahoo! News

    Does anyone know if pay-cuts were a part of the bailout agreement with the banks?

    What was the structure of the bailout? Did the U.S. government acquired an equity interest or was it simply loans with various covenants, including a pay-cut clause?

    Finally, if it was an equity interest, what percentage do we own? Is it common voting stock? Did the government "vote out" the current boards?

    The reason I'm asking these questions is that I would like to understand the legal means by which forced pay-cuts were crammed down the banks' throats.

    That is a Damn Good Question. It makes no sense at all. It must be Rich, White, Liberal Guilt syndrome.

    Expanded unemployment benefits.

    Cap and trade that will probably pass Congress this session or early next.

    "Health Care Reform" which will tax those who have money in order to pay for health care for people who "can't afford it".

    Blocking access to oil and gas within the U.S. boundaries which increase the cost of fuel as well as increasing the taxes paid to the government.


    How do those sound for a few examples of the government "redistributing" wealth form those who have it to those who will vote Democrat in the next election?

    I do NOT Agree with this at all.

    Pigouvian taxation, not wealth redistribution.

    "Health Care Reform" which will tax those who have money in order to pay for health care for people who "can't afford it".
    Agreed.

    Blocking access to oil and gas within the U.S. boundaries which increase the cost of fuel as well as increasing the taxes paid to the government.
    link?

    If the republicans can put together a serious contender for the presidency, then i will most likely vote for them. If not and/or the economy as well as health care improves Obama wins.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
