Government to pay millions in Bonus
March 24, 2009 12:11pm CST
It seems that AIG can't pay bonus because it is unethical, and immoral and wrong. These rich exec should share with the poor and give them them money after paying 90% tax on it. However what is passing without a mention by the Powers on Capital Hill is the fact that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are planning to give out millions in Bonus. These are Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSE) but I guess they don't count and can give millions to politicians - I meant to say employees. I guess this news is not in the media talking points as it was negotiated by the government. Bonus for the exec who are pushing the administration idea of housing for all those who can't afford it. Since AIG is not a GSE yet it is OK to attack them. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/03/18/AR2009031803188.html

They deserve no bonuses. Fannie Mae, along with Freddie Mac created this economic problem to begin with. This is simply more misdirection on the government's part. If AIG doesn't deserve bonuses, then Fannie Freddie damn sure don't deserve them. The 0bamunist and his cronies in government are a bunch of lying hypocrites. Of course4, a few of us already knew that.
