I cannot believe the show that is being put on in Washington by our congressional leaders. Their outrage over the AIG bonuses is quite a performance. Barney Frank pounding his fist on the table is reminiscent of McCarthy calling out communists.
Don't misunderstand, I agree that it was wrong for the AIG execs to accept the money, but Congress has no right to judge them. First, they OK'd the bill that provided the payout and they haven't turned down any of the taxpayer money that is coming their way. They haven't reduced their salaries, cut back on expenses or volunteered to start contributing to the cost of their health care.
I would have a lot more respect for Congress if its members did what they are demanding others to do. Start showing us that they mean what they say and begin by returning some of the taxpayer money that they have received for pork-barrel projects for their districts.
