Everybody remembers AIG, don't you?? They are the insurance giant who received a $1,500,000,000.00 bailout from the government, i.e. the taxpayers of the United States of America. Well, after taking a luxury spa getaway shortly after the bailout, I did not think they would have the balls to go over top of that. But they do and they have!!
I was watching Fox News this morning and, after listening to the latest story about AIG sneaking in another luxury junket at the taxpayers' expense, and it was reported that AIG is planning on paying their top executives a combined $503,000,000.00 in advance compensation so that they will not leave the company. Yes, you heard it correctly, AIG would like to pay a little over FIVE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS TO THE VERY PEOPLE WHO RAN THEM INTO BANKRUPTCY SO THAT THEY WILL STAY AND CONTINUE TO RUN AIG!!!
HAS COMMON SENSE AND RESPONSIBLE FISCAL BEHAVIOR JUST COMPLETELY ABANDONED THE AMERICAN MARKET PLACE?!?!?
MORE IMPORTANTLY, ARE WE, THE TAXPAYERS OF AMERICA, GOING TO CONTINUE TO FOOT THE BILL FOR THIS TYPE OF IDIOCY AND IRRESPONSIBILITY?!?!?!
STAND UP AND SAY "NO"!! Call your congressman (all contact information is available through the internet) and voice your objections to this use of your tax dollars. Tell your representative, your senator, your president that you are sick and tired of footing the bill for these irresponsible overpaid jackasses.
DON'T WAIT!! DO IT NOW!!
