Nous applaudissons le courage du Président Barak Obama de mettre enfin les banquiers face à leurs responsabilités et de dénoncer les bonus « obscènes » des dirigeants.

The New York Times, 14/1/2010 (Jackie Calmes)
WASHINGTON — President Obama
laid down his proposal for a new tax on the nation’s largest financial
institutions on Thursday, saying he wanted “to recover every single
dime the American people are owed” for bailing out the economy.

Mr. Obama continued, “What I say to these executives is this: Instead
of sending a phalanx of lobbyists to fight this proposal or employing
an army of lawyers and accountants to help evade the fee, I suggest you
might want to consider simply meeting your responsibilities” —
including by rolling back bonuses.
