File under assholes

Y'know maybe some day we'll have Democrats in Congress that the cable nets actually listen to so stories like this can be covered, rather than "Dems cave on Contraception Funding".

Because this is abhorent -- we're giving these assholes money and they turn around and use it to fuck you over again:

Three days after receiving $25 billion in federal bailout funds, Bank of America Corp. hosted a conference call with conservative activists and business officials to organize opposition to the U.S. labor community's top legislative priority.

Participants on the October 17 call -- including at least one representative from another bailout recipient, AIG -- were urged to persuade their clients to send "large contributions" to groups working against the Employee Free Trade Act (EFCA), as well as to vulnerable Senate Republicans, who could help block passage of the bill.

God forbid this get any coverage in broadcast media.
