JON STEWART: Teachers Don't Work As Hard As Wall Street...At Ruining The World Economy

John Stewart

On the Daily Show last night, Jon Stewart picked up on some unsurprising double standards being made by conservative media on teachers.

Said Stewart, irony oozing from his ears:

“We the taxpayers have a right to cut [teachers’] salaries and benefits — they work for us! Bankers are not suckling from the taxpayer’s teat…except of course for the billions of gallons of taxpayer bailout teat milk they supped on so voraciously.”

He flashed through some choice clips from Fox News, including particularly a golden one from Megyn Kelly:

“Teachers are not paid as much as folks on Wall Street, nor do they work as hard: They have summers off!”

“Regardless of the greed based, almost sociopathic “job” the bankers did wrecking our economy,” Stewart retorted, “Those people were there every single day, 12 months a year, not that 9 month bullshit!”
