Congressman Boehner Suggests Bankers Grow A Pair Before Heading To DC

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,


A lot of people on Wall Street have expressed issues with the Chris Dodd’s little proposed bank-reform bill. That’s fine, and House Minority Leader John Boehner doesn’t begrudge them their concerns. He doesn’t much like the thing either, and everyone should fight it tooth and nail. But if he may, Boehner would like to offer some advice for any bankers trying to get their way. Stop being such pussies. Don’t take shit, prisoners or no for an answer.

“Don’t let those little punk staffers take advantage of you and stand up for yourselves,” Boehner said. “All of us are hearing from our friends and constituents on lack of credit, you can’t get a loan, the more your government takes and taxes, the more regulations you have to comply with the more cost you have there and less amount you are going to have available to loan to customers.”

Boehner’s comments come as bankers prepare to descend upon Capitol Hill to press for changes to the bank-reform legislation, which they wouldn’t support in its present form. Boehner said he urged bankers not to be shy when meeting with the lawmaker staff members and to send a message that new regulations and taxes translates to into banks having less available for lending.
