Bailout pays for Mango Towel Service

While the president-elect talks about yet another bailout/stimulus plan, we learn how Fannie Mae executives have chosen to spend over $6000 of their last $200 Billion of bailout money on a golf outing that included mango towel service and $1700 worth of buffet food and $555 for drinks.

Where's the outrage? 

As reported by the star telegram "I am outraged by this," said U.S. Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Dallas, who serves on the committee that oversees Fannie Mae.

And then the Quote of the day that had me LMAO:  

"They have 200 billion dollars of taxpayer money from the schoolteacher in Mesquite, the factory worker in Garland, the policeman in Dallas, and they’re running around golfing, getting mango towel service," Hensarling said. "I’m not even sure what mango towel service is, but I know the taxpayers of Dallas County and America shouldn’t have to be paying for it."

Have you ever experienced mango towel service??

  1. I'm outraged for two reasons here

    1) there's a congressman here (U.S. Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Dallas) who has the potential to possibly do something about this outrage and all he can manage to do is give us his opinion?


    2) I have played golf occasionally over a number of years and never had the opportunity of getting the mango towel service. These people at Fannie Mae make it possible for people to buy houses at 0% down payment and they don't subsidize special towel treatments at the golf courses I play at? Where's the justice in that?
