AIG is at it again...oh, wait...they never stopped...

This just makes me want to vomit. Chris over at Americablog says it best. Here is Brilliant at Breakfast's take on it. Here's a New York Times article. It seems as though now they are saying they "have" to make 165 million in bonus payments because they are contractually obligated to do so for fear of being sued. The Wall Street Journal says the amount is more like 450 million.

As I sit here trying to figure out if I can afford my $9 inhaler from Wal-Mart or if I should go for the $4 nebulizer meds instead this makes me sick. Oh, hell yeah, please give them whatever they want and friggin' forget about the rest of us because it is much more important that precious AIG not get sued than whether or not I can breathe.

Here's a speech maybe everyone on Capitol Hill should read...TO BIG HAS FAILED


Yesterday AIG finally posted a full list of their counterparties (the companies/banks that got your money) Click here for the full list.
