Gingrich: McCaskill Should Be Outraged With Herself

In a column for Human Events, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich blasts Sen. Claire McCaskill for her plan to cap salaries of top executives.

"Vice President Biden and Sen. McCaskill should be outraged with themselves. The reason is simple: If there had been no big government bailout of these companies, their CEOs would have no fiduciary duty to the taxpayers," Gingrich writes. "It wouldn’t be any of Sen. McCaskill’s business how they compensate themselves. But government offered the money, and private companies took it. So now government is in charge."
