What do you think about those employees at AIG? Were you surprised to learn that our government officials. apparently from Obama on down, knew about the bonuses that were paid out? Do you object to that? I don't for the simple reason this money was due according to contracts engaged in by the owners and the employees.
Now you want to keep in mind that the children in charge in DC did not put the proper wording in place prior to sending out the money. This from those who screamed "more regulation is needed". This is what happens when you put a bureaucrat in charge. Commissar Obama is a bureaucrat. He and the children in the playpen are way, way over their heads in this matter and opinion from his leftist supporters is starting to disappear. If he is allowed to mess with contractual law imagine what will happen to the profession of Realtor and all those occupations and professions that go along with ours.
You might ask what can we do. I would suggest you look for or start a tea party in your community. This can be held in your town or you can assist and organize one for your state capital. You will want to get the phone numbers, local and DC. of you representatives at the state and federal level and make sure that you bother them. Keep in mind that our government. particularly at the federal level, is out of control and see themselves as little pashas. Term limits of one term should be looked at and let me note that you just might want to recheck those two documents, favorites of mine, The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution with the Bill of Rights and the Amendments.
