    These are the companies who the GOP claims are hurting; corporate welfare beneficiaries who take advantage of tax loopholes and are actually doing pretty well.

    ..and more


    AIG IN FACTS
    ● THE BIG STORY: $101.3 BILLION LAUNDERED THRU AIG to pay other U.S. and FOREIGN banks (some big Obama donors).
    ● THE DISTRACTION: $165 MILLION AIG BONUSES allowed by the so-called Stimulus bill
    ● THE REAL AGENDA: PRECEDENTS & EXPANSION BY GOVERNMENT
    The government and the media want Americans to focus on the $165 millions in contractual bonuses AIG gave to their employees.
    They fail to mention: The bonus loophole was inserted by Democrat Senator Chris Dodd in the so-called Stimulus bill.
    They fail to mention: $101.3 Billion bailout money has been laundered thru AIG to pay special interest firms. We are failing to focus on the big picture: Politicians are creating precedent for government confiscations and expansion – all financed with our taxpayer money.

    AIG BONUSES TO POLITICIANS
    Democrats received 68% of AIG’s contributions for the 2008 elections.
    #1 AIG RECIPIENT: DEMOCRAT BARACK OBAMA
    Democrat Barack Obama● Obama & leaders in Congress rammed the “Stimulus” bill thru Congress not allowing enough time to read the bill and opening the chance for problems like AIG’s bonuses.
    ● Obama’s most generous donors include many of the companies that received bailout money.

    "Never let a legitimate crisis go to waste" Chicago Brass Knuckle Thug and Current Mayor Rahm Emanuel salivating at the prospect of being able to reward all of Barack Obama's donors generously at taxpayer expense under the guise of an economic stimulus package while appearing to be a hero to the witless throngs who cast their ballots for Baracky Obammunist, November, 2008.

    "Those people receiving Government welfare as well as those receiving other forms of government largesse, along with the working poor, constitute a critical mass that if manipulated properly could lead to the installation a (Communist) in high office and maintain him there for a considerable time" Barack Obama, Loyola University, 1998. Like Hitler with his "Mein Kampf" we were warned in advance what was coming.

    Where did tax loopholes come from? Tax loopholes were created by A-holes who didn't have a clue or didn't give a damn about the job they were supposed to do. Does anyone in their right mind think the fools in the federal bureaucracies really care about the American people? The number #1 purpose of a bureaucracy is to get bigger and confiscate more money. You libs need to ask yourselves why the chairperson of the House Banking Committee, Barney Frank who had oversight responsibility for Fannie Mae, told the American people that Fannie was doing fine when it was on the verge of collapse. Maybe he was a fool or maybe he just didn't give a shit because his salary was secure and confiscated from the American people. We need to take a hard look at the system that created "the war on poverty" forty years ago and succeeded in nothing but creating more poverty at the cost of trillions of dollars. If the radical left worried more about the people they elected than the private sector's "loopholes" we might get somewhere.
