Stuart Varney, a British-American media host specializing in financial news doesn’t believe that furloughed federal workers should receive their missed salaries once the stalemate has been resolved. Varney is a professional scumbag, who also has a seething hatred for poor people and children.
In fact, Varney says that he wants to punish them. Presumably not the Capitol Police and Secret Service who were called in yesterday when a car breached White House security and then careened around D.C.
Or the folks who man veterans’ monuments.
Varney, whose net worth is approximately $10 million dollars feels the onus of paying federal workers and bemoans how much money they earn.
He responds to a question about providing back pay for the furloughed workers.
“That is a loaded question isn’t it? You want my opinion? This is President Obama’s shutdown. He is responsible for shutting this thing down; he’s taken an entirely political decision here. No, I don’t think they should get their back pay, frankly, I really don’t. I’m sick and tired of a massive, bloated federal bureaucracy living on our backs, and taking money out of us, a lot more money than most of us earn in the private sector, then getting a furlough, and then getting their money back at the end of it. Sorry, I’m not for that. I want to punish these people. Sorry to say that, but that’s what I want to do.”
Oh Mr. Varney, how are you scraping by?
Taxes too high for you?
Go back to England.
