Bankers and Bailouts
An investigation by The Associated Press found that banks receiving the biggest bailouts requested visas for thousands of foreign workers while laying off American employees. Legislation by Senators Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) would require the bailed-out banks to hire only Americans for one year. "It is obscene and vulgar for these huge banks getting taxpayer bailouts to use the bailouts to throw American workers on the street and bring in foreign workers," Sanders told AP. Banks accepting taxpayer bailouts should first hire laid-off American banking workers, he said. The legislation, Sanders added, was in response to the investigation which revealed that the dozen banks now receiving more than $150 billion in bailouts requested visas for more than 21,800 foreign workers over the past six years for high-paying jobs. In a speech on the Senate floor, Sanders said the American people are furious that a handful of Wall Street executives through their greed, recklessness and possible illegal behavior have plunged us into the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.

Mind-Blowing Fed Secrecy
Financial institutions have received more than $2.3 trillion in taxpayer-backed loans and other financial assistance from the Federal Reserve. Sanders asked Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke to name the hundreds of banks that took money. Bernanke refused. Sanders called it mind-blowing that trillions of dollars have been placed at risk without anyone outside the secretive Fed knowing who got how much for what. So on Wednesday he asked the Senate to go on record saying the Fed should publish on its Web site information detailing all of the emergency financial assistance it has provided.

Executive Compensation
The Obama administration is set to announce that seven companies that took the biggest taxpayer bailouts must slash the annual salaries of their 25 top executives by an average of 90 percent from 2008 levels. Overall, the total compensation for the 25 executives, including yearly bonuses and retirement pay, will be cut by an average of around 50 percent. Moreover, executives who want more than $25,000 in fancy perks like private planes, limousines, company cars or country club memberships -- will have to get government permission first. The seven companies are Bank of America Corp., American International Group Inc., Citigroup Inc., General Motors, GMAC, Chrysler and Chrysler Financial.

Reconciliation: Good for the Goose
Reforming health care, stopping climate change and reforming education are top priorities for President Obama and many members of Congress, including Senator Bernie Sanders. As Congress this week votes on the budget, Senate Republicans will try to erect roadblocks to reform. They have developed a newfound opposition to a parliamentary process that would let proposals rise or fall by majority votes in the Senate. There was a time when they liked the procedure, known as reconciliation, but that was back when a Republican-controlled Congress was giving tax breaks to millionaires. Now, when it comes to trying to provide health care to average Americans, theyve got a problem with the process.

Tax on Workers Health Insurance Plans a Bad Idea
Hosting a press conference with labor leaders and organized workers, Sen. Bernie Sanders called for the elimination of a provision in the Senate health reform proposal which would tax some health insurance plans. Imposing an excise tax on health insurance plans would be a disaster for millions of middle class Americans, Sanders said. Sanders introduced an amendment to strike the provision from the Senate-introduced Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The so-called Cadillac health insurance plans in fact can have premiums around $8,500 for an individual plan and $23,000 for a family plan.
