AIG

I don't get the outrage. Really, the whole thing is just high comedy. Congress, who get an automatic pay raise every year while driving the country into a ditch, is apoplectic while AIG is dumbfounded that government money is bringing political interference. These people deserve each other.

Update: Related thoughts from Mark Perry, noting that among other things that some AIG employees had accepted $1 salaries in exchange for the promises bonuses.

The outrage by Obama officials is not directed at AIG; the goal is to discredit capitalism and prepare the way for socialism. The insinuation here is that AIG is typical of many large companies. Let's whip up the class envy!
