After the AIG debacle, why would the Fannie and Freddie bonuses be given a free ride? Bwaney Fwank came out with some very convincing mock outrage about it. I thought surely they wouldnt do it. But apparently they are: (its from the politico. I still cannot post urls. wilhosa, lets not go through that again) Thats pretty stupid. But hey, we keep electing them. Lets see, both AIG and Fannie/Freddie have govt money. Fannie and Freddie were always govt actors. AIG was at least private, once.
