Yep. AIG executives got lots of bonuses, some as much as a million dollars, after they got bailed out by the government. You betcha, it’s wrong. But where has all this outrage been while everybody else has been getting bailed out and bonused at the same time? Why is a tenth of a percent of our money so important now?
Just think what the difference might have been by now if the national television media, flushed with indignation now, had shown half that concern four months ago? They’re driving the story now and we’re expected not to wonder if things might have been different.
It now appears as though the legal obstacle to forbidding the payout of bonuses was ferreted into the bill by an unknown party. Unknown for now, but you can bet their name will be known by the end of the day.
Because, of course, that’s important.
