I'm not sure how we benefit from this democracy versus the Republic we once had. A State ran government was definitely better than this Federal crap we have evolved into. At least our right would be honored somewhere rather than banned everywhere.
I'm so angry about it, I can barely express myself.
I can't believe that these companies would cry bankruptcy, help us, we're failing, the American economy needs us, without us, the whole system will fail, and then turn around rip us off right to our faces.
They honestly thought (AIG) that they were going to get away with paying those bonuses, they never expected this amount of anger and backlash.
They should be made to give every single penny back, not just the bonus payments, but all of it.
Every last dime and dollar needs to be given back to us, and they need to be allowed to fail. No more bailouts for any of them, I can almost guarantee that some of the other companies were thinking they could pull off the same thing.
