Americans Don't Want The Hole Thing

"I saw an article today that indicated Wall Street bankers had given themselves $20 billion worth of bonuses ($18.4 billion, actually, according to New York comptroller). That is the height of irresponsibility. It is shameful...Part of what we're going to need is for the folks on Wall Street who are asking for help to show some restraint, some discipline and some sense of responsibility. The American people understand we've got a big hole we've got to dig ourselves out of. They don't like people digging a bigger hole even as they're being asked to fill it up."

President Obama

"There will be a time for them to make profits and a time for them to get bonuses. This is not that time."

President Obama
