The Democratic-led House overwhelmingly approved a bill on Thursday to slap punishing taxes on big employee bonuses from AIG and other firms bailed out by taxpayers.
"We want our money back and we want our money back now for the taxpayers," said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

This is a disgrace! Corrupt politicians who wrote the law in the first place to keep these bonuses paid now leading the lynch mob. This is more than a disgrace. This is despicable. Damn these charlatans!
What about all the other REALLY BIG MONEY you have been giving to ACORN and democRAT supporters including the terrorists in GAZA? When are we going to get that money back? Oh yeah, we'll get that money back in the form of election fraud, union intimidation and terror acts against American citizens.
I know there are quite a bit of people are all riled about this bonus thing. "We bailed them out and they are paying themselves bonuses and it is outrageous" is the thinking. First, as I posted over and over again, the whole bailout thing was a scam. Blame these assholes in Congress who bailed out these people. Blame the jackasses like Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, Pelosi, Reid and Obama who rammed the bailout stimulus scam through. Oh, I see, Bush enacted the first TARP I, so blame him huh? Read this blog again. I was vehemently opposed to it then. I called it a scam then. Hey! Bush is history. What the hell is the chosen one, your Kenyan-Indonesian President doing? When is he going to stop blaming Bush? The guy thinks we are too stupid to see what he is doing.
You maybe happy to see that these bonuses will be taxed almost 100%. You are an idiot! If congress has the power to target individuals and punish them by confiscating their incomes to the tune of 100%, what stops them from doing the same thing to other people. What stops them from targeting anyone they don't like? Sure, you ain't got no money and couldn't care less about the rich pigs right... Well, what happens when these people say they lost all that money and they cannot pay back? What do you think is the answer? Your jackass democRAT congressmen will pass another law to jail these people. They will start arresting and jailing their political opponents. That's where we are headed.
Remember folks: Clinton's AG sent a fully armed federal agents into a private citizen's home to grab a child in the middle of the night so the child can be returned to a communist dictatorship. I would not be surprised to see Obama's AG sending armed federal agents to other citizens' homes to confiscate their property to return to their "rightful owner" the STATE.
It is a shameful day in America...
Mob mentality has taken over US Congress.
Stop for a moment and think folks. Say you are hired or you are working for a company that took bailout money. Keep in mind that some of the banks were forced to take bailout money. Let's say your pay is based on your performance and you get a percentage bonus based on the amount of business you bring in or money you save in or on any other criteria. You do your job. You get the bonus you deserve which was part of the agreement in the beginning when you took the job or the assigned task. Now the owner -- as the big jerk Barney Frank claims your company is owned by the government since the government gave it the bailout money -- not only wants the money bank but wants to humiliate you for taking that bonus in the first place. Wouldn't you say: "F@#$ you assholes!" Wouldn't you be out of that company as soon as you can? You see folks, liberal democRATs and Obama are not bailing out anything. They are destroying our businesses and our country.
By the way, I don't know any of these guys who worked for AIG and who received these bonuses. I suspect many of them are rich liberals who contributed and voted for socialist Obama anyways. There is a picture of the guy who is running the financial services unit, posted on several sites. He is wearing a "Che" shirt. He obviously a sympathizer of the Cuban Butcher. This is not about these people. This about rule of law.
