Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Dodd and Frank set up this AIG scam

AIG has cooperated with the government and complied with the stimulus laws in every way. On the other hand, Chris Dodd changed his story about adding the language in the stimulus bill allowing AIG (and other companies) to pay bonuses contracted for before Feb 09. While the bill was still in Congress, there were discussions to take that out, which would have given government appointed AIG CEO Edward Liddy legal justification to break the contracts and not pay the bonuses. Even though those who received the bonus have agreed to return them, Congress is still working on a bill that would tax bonuses paid with bail out money at 90%. Everyone at AIG seems to be cooperating with the government, so why are Dodd, Reid, Pelosi, Frank and Prs. Obama still trying to make them look like the bad guys? It's simple. There never was an outrage here, but the slime in our government invented an outrate to get the public behind them. The incompetent press played along for their own purposes. So, now that we know this, let's make it backfire on them.
