    afterall, they have given us an 11 trillion and growing deficit. all their money should be taxed to help pay down the deficit.

    true, we must admit its hilarious to see congress with all that phony outrage over AIG when congress cant even control itself.

    Hey--I am all for that. They just gave themselves another raise--it's also included in the 787 BILLION dollar stimulus package--that none of them bothered to read before signing.. Of course, also included was the AIG rentention bonuse's--that they all have been "faking" anger over. Obama called today for Wall Street executives to step back to see--how we all live. Well, how about our smooth talking--never gotten their hands dirty--never had to balance a checkbook--elected officials in government. I'll trade shoes with them for a couple of months so they can get a taste of the "real world".

    How about paying the American taxpayer back for their failure to respond to "years" of warning after warning regarding Freddie/Fannie--the GROUND ZERO for this economic collapse. Come to think of it--our politicians should be working for FREE right now.

    Maybe someone will start giving bus tours of their homes. You know that may be a very good private business opportunity. Wouldn't that be great!
