Wall Street, the real victims
This Bloomberg article by Max Abelson is bursting at the seams with outrageous quotes from high-profile Wall Street executives responding to attacks on the wealthiest 1%:
“Who gives a crap about some imbecile? Are you kidding me?” - Bernard Marcus, Home Depot co-founder, on Occupy protesters
“It still feels lonely, but the chorus is definitely increased.” - John Allison, BB&T Corp. director
“Instead of an attack on the 1 percent, let’s call it an attack on the very productive.” - John Allison
“I am a fat cat, I’m not ashamed. If you mean by fat cat that I’ve succeeded, yeah, then I’m a fat cat. I stand guilty of being a fat cat.” - Ken Langone, Home Depot co-founder
“You have to have skin in the game. I’m not saying how much people should do. But we should all be part of the system.” - Stephen Schwarzman, Blackstone CEO, on low-income households not paying income taxes
“If I hear a politician use the term ‘paying your fair share’ one more time, I’m going to vomit.” - Tom Golisano, billionaire and founder of Paychex
And my absolute favorite…
"You’ll get more out of me if you treat me with respect." - Leon Cooperman, billionaire and former CEO of Goldman Sachs’s money-management unit
