AIG bonuses - between idiocy and the U.S. Constitution
Everyone is outraged over the AIG "bail out" mess. $45 BILLION of the loot has gone to banks overseas. Grand larceny of the people's empty purse. In order to deflect their own culpability in this monstrous mess, high profile members of Congress are attempting to distract you with bills over the bonuses that will ultimately result in nothing but endless lawsuits. First, these bonuses are employment contracts, some entered into years ago. The House has passed legislation in an attempt to get back these bonuses. These buffoons are also trying to pass a bill that would tax those bonuses at a 90% rate. Take that! However, law experts are already saying the Supreme Court will uphold such a tax! Another mess created by Congress! If you voted for Mitch and Hal Rogers and the George W. Bush gang, then that AIG bailout is what you voted for. Next time vote for a Rural Democrat!
