Obama Decries ‘Fat Cat Bankers’
"President Obama took a tougher tone with Wall Street, referring to fat cat bankers in a taped interview that aired Sunday, the day before he was scheduled to meet with the nation's largest banks to discuss the economy.
"The president's remarks echoed what others in his administration have said recently, signaling an escalating tension with the banking industry.
"In the interview, which was conducted last week for CBS's 60 Minutes, Mr. Obama was asked about Wall Street banks that had recently recovered enough to repay government loans, but once again planned to give large bonuses to employees. News of the bonuses has has only fueled continuing anger over the bank bailouts."
