We had AIG ins. and just before we canceled our policies we received a letter from them AIG with a name change. As of one year ago they are now know as 21st Century Ins. You will see their TV ads in big red letters. I guess they werent selling any policies after their downfall. They still have the AIG building in NY.

We should have hearings about what Geithner's role and possibly Paulson's role in this matter. Taxpayers gets the short straw while Golden-Sachs gets it all. I know the government whats to appear impartial but they "catered" to Wall Street, and that catering was by both parties.

And while we're at it, let's open up hearings on the healthcare debate. Barry, the transformational president, sure is transforming things - for the worse. In his darkest hour, George Bush couldn't dream of this level of corruption.
