AIG Execs Return Bonus $$

Props to 9 out of the top 10 bonus recipients to giving back the money! What makes me giddy is they gave it back by choice. That's the beautiful thing about America - you have a choice. Sadly, NY Senator Charles Schumer (idiot) doesn't think so: "Let the recipients of these large and and unseemly bonuses be warned: if you don't do it on your own, we will do it for you." Oh really, Chuck? And by what authority will you take a person's bonus check? Folks, this is the beginning of total government control. If we don't do something, if the Republicans don't buck up and do their job, we are doomed. Pay will be controlled and incentive to work hard, lost. Not really a world I want to live in. I'm going to college and working hard in order to get paid more than the guy who only graduated from high school or maybe didn't even do that.

Now we need to work on Congress to stop their perks, pay their taxes, stop traveling first class on our dime, stop meeting at resorts and return all monies they have placed in their freezers.

I agree - members of Congress need to get off their perches and be just like regular citizens. There should also be term limits since long-term power corrupts and there are idiots in there for far too long (Pelosi, Kennedy, etc.).

If this tax passes and is used. Where will it stop? It will not.
