Lloyd Blankfein Get Harsh On Politicians Handling Fiscal Cliff

Lloyd Blankfein is clearly tired of everyone in Washington kicking the can down the road when it comes to the fiscal cliff. CNN has a clip of him getting a little heated about it during the Clinton Global Initiative.

How heated (from CNN):

“After the election regardless of who wins and regardless of where the compromise gets set, people who’ve been pouting for 18 months and holding their breath aren’t going to want to do that for another four years…but.. there is a substantial risk that we won’t get action.”

Basically, he just called everyone in Washington a petulant child. Watch the video below:
