PEU Report summarizes this selection:

MetLife's 2012 proxy showed Burwell received $260,000 in board compensation with control over 22,000 shares, 15,000 beneficially owned and 7,000 deferred shares.  However Burwell received 4,000 shares in 2012 for a total of 26,000. Those shares would fetch $920,000 at Friday's closing stock price.

Burwell will serve the Government-Corporate Monstrosity, Eisenhower's Military Industrial Complex on trillions in federal steroids and intent on global tampering.  She'll work for blue tinted PEU's [Private Equity] and their sponsored politicians.  It's hegemony, where the greed and power boys, and an occasional girl, win.
