Wingnut Welfare

Unfortunately for the rest of us in America, truth is stranger than fiction:

Former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is joining the Wall Street firm Moelis & Co., the firm announced on Tuesday.
“Eric has proven himself to be a pro-business advocate and one who will enhance our boardroom discussions with CEOs and senior management as we help them navigate their most important strategic decisions,” the firm’s founder, Ken Moelis, said in a statement.
Cantor is signing on with the boutique investment bank as a vice chairman and managing director, the company said. He will also be elected to its board of directors.

Cantor is expected to receive a pay package of $3.4 million in his new role, Business Insider reported, citing a Securities and Exchange Commission filing.

$3.4 MILLION Dollars a year to have discussion with CEO's.  Despite the fact that Eric Cantor's career was more that of a circus clown than business executive.

 Lets take a quick look:

Via Politifact in October 2010:
"What you've seen (in Washington) is a crowd that has taken advantage of a crisis back in late '08, early '09 and spent more money than this country has spent in the last 200 years combined, in the two years since."

OUCH that would be pants on fire Mr. Cantor.

The issue for us is rebuilding a governing majority that is comfortable with differences that can transcend the divisiveness and unify behind the principles that we know our party has succeeded on.
 Ummmm, arent you suing the President of the United States?

 At least he had the courage to trample a little girl!  O yeah when he lost he turned tail and quit, thus taking his ball and going home with his tail between his legs. 

I am not sure exactly what kind of advice he will be giving to CEO's, just know if he talks to your CEO, I would update the resume!  
Finally, and maybe most important, lets send Paul Ryan to be with his friend Eric Cantor.
