Yes He Cant

It turns out Eric Cantor
did not live up
to his namesake

and heal the country
with Jewish song

but he did get hired
as vice chairman and managing director

at a type of institution
known to be
a breeding ground

for "welfare queens"
who beg for
and then recklessly spend
taxpayers' hard-earned money

while adding nothing of value
to our society

or otherwise officially known
as one of the Wall Street investment banks

Moelis & Company.

In this new post
he will earn
almost ten times

his Congressional salary
of $193,400

putting him into
a solidly millionaire tax bracket.

Would that a few
of those Occupy folks

come back from 2011
and wait below

just in case
he suddenly feels compelled
to serenade them.
