Some highlights from this week:

“If you’re a financial professional and you’re making $6,000 a year, something is wrong. If you are a client of a financial professional who makes $6,000 a year, that is probably not the right adviser for you.”  Zach Carter on the lose/lose nature of Primerica 

 

“It’s a bit rocky. There are some roadblocks.” — Laura Barron-Lopez on the fate of the Highway Trust Fund 

 

“So if we’re not gonna raise the gas tax, how are these guys creatively coming up with ways to even fund the trust fund?" 

"They went into their offices in the Senate and started looking under the cushions of their couches. "

"Don’t they mostly find hard candy and parts of their old dentures?"

"That’s basically what they put in the legislation.” — Jason Linkins and Arthur Delaney on the Highway Trust Fund legislative process 


“I was actually talking to some people about this. They were saying how their jobs are a lot harder with John Brennan, ‘cause John Brennan just looks like he wants to take you into a room and rip your fingernails off.” — Ali Watkins on current CIA Director John Brennan's sunny disposition
