chris dodd and obama benefits most from AIG contributions.
those who think we still need to give obama and his cronies more time are still stupid. they pass stuff without reading it, they pass stuff that benefits them, they think.
IF you say you won't honor one contract, what makes your word good on any other contract. that is what keeps bussiness going...contracts are legal documents. that is another bit of crap, a union would not allow a contract not to be honored with them would they?
we have Geithner running the treasary and the irs, yet he is an admitted tax evader who didnt' even have to pay a pentalty or interest as you or i would have had to do. we would not got off with a simple oops, i'm sorry. this is so wrong on so many levels and that is why obama is having such as hard time hiring people.
congress is to blame for most all our problems and yet we are looking to them to solve them...we are indeed stupid and their fake outrage is a joke...but the joke is on us.
there is not end in sight to how much more they are going to be asking for.
until the silent majority starts taking actions, this is what we will get for the next four years. so maybe we are stupid.

Olbermann is a douche. He should have stuck to sports. I don't earn 250K and I'm not among the quoted 95% receiving a tax break. My paycheck has not changed at all. I smoke, so my taxes increased when the cigarette tax increased. Sure, it's my choice but I think it's silly to charge smokers a sin tax to pay for SCHIP for parents who aren't taking care of their own family's health needs. Yes, I'm paying health insurance for my own kids and for the children of people who can't or won't for their own. How stupid is that? When the Bush tax cuts are allowed to expire in 2010, most everyone will see a tax hike. I guess the quoted 95% should enjoy it while it lasts, because it won't last long. Cap & Trade is coming. We'll all see increased energy costs from that. If anyone believes that "the rich" are going to take care of a four trillion dollar deficit they're nuttier than the snake oil salesman that's trying to convince us of it. Go ahead and praise Olbermann. He's as big an idiot as all the others who believe the BS being spewed in our direction.

This is why I am against capitalism. I say we all go get some guns and teach those politicians a lesson. People who sit there and take money so that over people can rob people are immoral, godless heathens and don't deserve to live.

I noticed my congressman is on that list. I guess that explains why 70% of his constituents told him NO bailouts, Mr. Wilson, but he went along for the ride anyway. Shameful. Lobbyists should be banned from Our Nations Capital. Our congress is corrupted. They should be removed from Washiington at the end of a Bayonet. SHAMEFUL. Dirty rotten SCOUNDRELS!

If it was left up to me , all politicians everywhere would be either hung in a public square or put on hard labor laying bricks or hanging sheetrock or something for the rest of their lives

This is why failing companies need to be allowed to fail. Whenever the government gets involved, it breeds corruption.
Nevermind the fact that over half of the AIG bailout money went to foreign countries.

Very interesting list.
To the confused: 'Pres' refers to presidential candidate, not president. Romney isn't the only one labeled Pres, so are Guiliani, Edwards, Richardson and others.

Can you really buy a senator for $500.00? I'm going to pick up the bottom 20 and use them for references until I can think of a better way to use them.

Maybe we should listen to the republications and let the banks fail...
