A Pax on Their House

I wonder what the everyday, American taxpayer, like me, can do to see to it that Citibank is rubbed off the face of the earth:

Beleaguered Citigroup is upgrading its mile-high club with a brand-new $50 million corporate jet - only this time, it's the taxpayers who are getting screwed.

Even though the bank's stock is as cheap as a gallon of gas and it's burning through a $45 billion taxpayer-funded rescue, the airhead execs pushed through the purchase of a new Dassault Falcon 7X . . .

A woman answering the phone at CitiFlight's private hangar in White Plains said she was "not authorized to release information" about the new jet. Dassault's US sales office declined to comment. Citigroup spokesman Stephen Cohen declined to comment.

President Obama offered no comment.
