    Some in Congress wish to punish AIG executives by increasing the taxes on retention bonuses. Is Congress trying to "shred the Constitution"?:

    Bill of attainder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Was Congress elected or are they appointed "Kings" to Lord over us? Hey listen, if Congress is allowed to do that to "Evil AIG Executives" they the general populace isn't far behind.

    DAMAGE CONTROL....that's what's going on right now, plane and simple. They fucked things up and are now trying to look like they're doing something about it.

    You can if your a liberal and just ignore the Constitution.

    You are aware they are trying to UNCONSTITUTIONALLY give DC a Representative right? The deal would be DC illegally gets a Voting Rep and a Conservative State illegally gets a FREE Rep.
