Unbelievable

Senator Chuck Schumer:

“My colleagues and I are sending a letter to [AIG CEO Edward] Liddy informing him that he can go right ahead and tell the employees that are scheduled to get bonuses that they should voluntarily return them. Because if they don’t, we plan to tax virtually all of it. He should tell his employees that if they don’t give the money back, we’ll put in place a new law that will allow us to tax these bonuses at a very high rate so it is returned to its rightful owners, the taxpayers. So for those of you who are getting these bonuses be forewarned, you will not be getting to keep them.”

    That is unconstitutional. Oh yeah. That’s right. We don’t follow the constitution anymore.

  2. AvaP. Says:

    Ya know, you just can’t pass laws based on wanting money back…what a lame comment!

  3. AvaP. Says:

    Oh..wait! I guess under this new administration all things are possible:)

  4. Josh Brandt Says:

    Well I HOPE he can CHANGE this unconstitutional mess. Unfortunately HOPE is lost for the constitution, and he will not CHANGE anything useful 🙂

  5. Dan The Man Says:

    I saw where it has come out now that Obama approved bonuses being paid out as part of the stimulas package. I wonder, where is the outrage from Jonathan and Dillon over this? We’re waiting…

  6. Josh Brandt Says:

    For some reason I don’t think Dillon will be on for a while, but I hope he does cause I need some good argument.
