My feeling are mixed on President Obama call to lawmakers to not govern in anger, by imposing taxes on AIG bonuses. I believe that congress in this instance is acting appropriately. Perhaps the President knows something that we don’t know. But on the face of it, it is wrong for executives to take government money and pay bonuses from it , especially at a time when when are economy is facing problem, people are losing their jobs, and many are unemployed.
Some sanctions need to be applied to these execuitve to deter future activity and governement in Washginton should be more responsible. Mainly reading the language in bills that they pass. To make sure unwanted clause are not included in the bills. We will neer know who was responsible for placing this clause in the legislation or who turn their head to let it pass. That is the trouble with Washington too much secrecy and too much behind the scene deal making.
