AIG- what do you think

about the bail out that went towards bonus's?

Should they be fired or jailed or both?

Do you think they should have to pay back the money?

  • i think we should take back all the money we gave them and just let them fail.
    then i think an investigation needs to be done which would probably result in people going to jail.

  • They should have to pay the money back regardless of this incident. Why should they be fired? The government gave them this money with ZERO strings or regulations attached. If we fire the ones who are getting the bonus do we fire the ones who provided the money for the company to DO this in the first place...i.e the members of the house and congress who voted yes for the bailout? If it hadn't been for them the company would have failed MONTHS ago and the bonus' would be a moot point.

  • They should never have gotten the money in the first place, and shame on Congress and the Fed for handing it out with no guidelines in place for its usage. If you send someone $100 in their birthday card, you can't very well go back and yell at them for spending it on Wii games instead of groceries. The entire TARP bill was basically a big ol birthday check for finance.

  • Oh good lord, Lets ee, Yes fired, as in impeached, yes jailed, the whole cabinet starting with Geithner and Obama, 90% of congress to follow. Give the money back? I want all 3 trillion back that Obama and congress is stealing from us.
    The point here is IF they had not bailed them out in the first place we would not be talikng about this!

  • Obama ordered the Treasury Chief to try to block A.I.G. bonuses. I just read an article from NYTimes.

  • If the government put no restrictions they should leave it alone. They gave them the money and put no conditions they spent it in a way most of us knew they would. You cannot go back now and tell them how to spend it. I say no more bailouts. Let companies and people go under. Those who are strong will get back up.
