Republicans Jabbering About Their 'Greased Chutes'
Wonkette Operative "Michael C" reports that this TARP-bailout hearing at the House is providing endless lulz. Why is Illinois Rep. Pete Roskam jabbering about tapping people's backsides and the "greased chute of government"? Because he's a Republican! It's all about ass.
Rep. Pete Roskam (R-Ill) just twice referred to the “greased chute of government” in regards to the TARP Epic Fail program during the House Financial Services hearing. Roskam: “What we’re dealing with today is the greased chute of government.”
Minutes later he said there was “sort of a pat you on the head, tap you on the backside” given to critics of mark-to-market accounting rules.
