Obama berates AIG and vows to try to block bonuses
« on: March 16, 2009, 05:44:22 PM »
WTF?  I don't understand how AIG can give their executives bonuses when their company had the largest losses in history last quarter.  How in the hell did they "earn" a bonus by running their company into the ground?  I don't understand it, it makes me mad and I'm glad Pres. Obama is calling them out on it.

Here we are 3 days later and the House of Representatives can pass a law that quick?  WTF?  They take months to get normal bills passed. 

House passes bill taxing bonuses for AIG, others...

...And there's even more on this story.  These companies that received bailout money haven't paid millions of dollars in back taxes.  Dayum, if this was a little guy like me, I'd have been put in jail by now!  This kind of stuff just pisses me off!   >:(

13 firms receiving federal bailout owe back taxes:
