So the President and Congress are pissed off that AIG is paying out bonuses using tax payer money. Definitely a bad call on AIG's part considering they are constantly in the media and political spotlight. But the real issue here is why do they have our tax dollars in the first place? Because first Bush bailed them out and then Obama followed suit. They are both idiots. You don't give money to a failing company...there is a reason that they ran out of their own money, because the company sucks. Same goes for the automakers, if they can't figure out how to become profitable companies then they either need to close their doors or reorganize under Chapter 11 with a new direction, as a new company, with new leadership. This of course all happening has Congress passes another pay increase for themselves in the middle of a recession. I don't know about you, but most of my friends are getting laid off, pay reductions, or have meager prospects for any hope of bonuses or pay increases this year. Congress is a bunch of jackasses.
