Eat The Rich! I wonder if the AIG bonus recipients are feeling smart right now for having chosen to take the bonuses. Because now they'll lose 90% of it in taxes(and the Republicans voted for it too, having no ideas--see video of pathetic Eric Cantor below), and Andrew Cuomo just received a list of their names.They've just been stripped naked, steaks tied to their necks, and left among the hungry wolves. As they deserve, because the instant they took the bailout, these bonuses--not their salaries, which would be more than enough for anyone and which no one's questioning(yet)--became a raid on the public treasury. And they honestly didn't believe they'd be punished, so they went right ahead. Now they are getting the treatment thieves deserve. It's right.
Besides, it hasn't passed the Senate yet. So the purpose of this is to frighten them into giving the bonuses back before that happens. The point of this is to show what they're willing to do, and that's smart.
