    Good for the Republicans.

    Fatboy Rush is correct this time.

    It's an idiotic tax.

    why does everyone assume that the folks that were going to be bonused were the very same people that tanked the company.....they were retention bonuses....which means the guy the govt hired to run aig for a dollar wanted them there to help him fix this mess.......

    now tell me.....suppose you are a genius patriotic banking wiz......like say toro.....would you go to work for aig to help our abusive rude congress folks fix this mess......
