AIG Fiasco

It finally hit me this week that I’m not mad at AIG. I don’t agree with how the conducted business, but I’m not mad at them. I am mad, however, at the government for giving out my hard earned tax money without giving proper stipulations up front. The original bill that gave AIG the money included agreements concerning bonuses. It was only after the public found out about how much these bonuses were that they tried to go back and “fix it”. Click here to find out how your government tried to do publicly do damage control once this went public. I am absolutely outraged! Where were these people before the money was given to AIG?  Not to mention the fact that AIG gave President Obama over $100,000 toward his campaign. (Obama Contribution from AIG )  So if we are having to give them money, does that mean that essentially the tax payers paid for his campaign? I have a feeling there is a LOT more to this story than we know.

So what can we do? Find out who your Rep is.  Let them know how you feel about what’s going on. Check their voting record to make sure they are speaking your voice and not theirs! Keep up with what’s going on so you know how to vote next election. Despite what the high and mighty think in Washington, this is still OUR Country.
