One of the mammon kings spent $35,000 on his office throne. Bank of America purchased Merrill Lynch with taxpayer bailout money. Bank of America is on the ropes (again) and needs more money to keep its doors open. Over at Merrill Lynch CEO John Thain was remodeling his office even though the company was losing billions. Bank of America bounced Thain only yesterday.
These are the Canaanite –experts- steering the financial ship in America. They are also the ones that retired people get their financial advice. They have no regard for anyone other than themselves. This is an example of where your taxpayer bailout money went, what it bought and the character of the people you will bailout under Tarp 2.0.
John Thain became Merrill Lynch’s CEO in early 2008, he hired Michael S. Smith Design to revamp his office suite, spending approximately $1.22 million according to documents. Documents show Thain signed off on the remodel personally.
