    Just out, Obama intends to veto, ie: kill the bonus tax bill.

    I no longer question if Washington or this Administration is corrupt. I now know all I need to know.

    Wouldn't passing the bill set a bad precedent, though?

    Passing this bill would be unconstitutional, and I think Obama would be right to veto this bill.

    After all the news came out about the Senators and Congressmen that got money from AIG and associated companies that were gifted billions of $$$, and now they fought to get the bill passed quickly and suddenly, out of nowhere, Obama says, gosh, sorry?

    Not to mention that Dodd is still wearing egg on his face from the fraudulent statements to the press.

    I dont THINK SO.

    LOL - Obama telemprompts outrage and then won't pass the hissy-fit Democrat bill from Congress to tax 90% of these bonuses?

    Ah, the loons are running the asylum for certain!

    Wow, some respect for the rule of law.. who'dve thought?

    It wouldn't been best not to give them the money to begin with... but I can't hold our congressmen to that high of a standard, huh?

    You know what, the more you watch whats going on in Washington, it looks like a one armed man trying to swim in 25 foot waves. (with all respect to anyone that may have lost an arm, SINCERELY!)

    This admin is floundering so badly it makes President Bush's administration look like a well oiled machine that had its ducks in row!

    Good for Obama.

    This was an idiotic bill.
