It was Charles Rangel, as chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, who introduced the legislation today imposing a 90 percent tax on the bonuses paid to execs at bailed-out companies. "These people are getting away with murder," Rangel proclaimed on the House floor earlier today during the debate over the bill. But now the bill has passed and Rangel's work is done and it's time to return home. First-class, baby! Via a tipster who emailed us moments ago: "Charlie Rangel is on the Acela RIGHT NOW in FIRST CLASS. Got up to make sure it was him and it is. I know plenty of congressmen ride first class but it's still annoying." And a tad ironic, too! Terms of Service Privacy Policy
