Quin, as a matter of morals, a $400 million paycheck is awfully greedy, and greed is wrong.
But a matter of public policy, it’s not. And when Hastert deems that compensation “unconscionable” to the press, he’s saying so in his office as a Congressman and Speaker of the House. If he’s saying that to preface remarks along the lines of “while this is unconscionable, it’s none of our business,” fine. But alone, it appears that he wants to do something about it, namely a price gouging investigation. Or worse.
