Treasury "said" to be unprepared, that's an understatement, they didn't know about the pay structure at AIG? That's their job. Weathermen and government employees are two occupations that you can screw up on a consistent basis are still keep your job. It' Ridiculous.

Getting bonuses for bad behavior? You would almost think the CEOs of AIG were congressmen or senators.

I would like to know how much of that money ended up back in the pockets of the legislators that approved the bailout without putting in caveats that the $$$ could not be used for executive bonuses. And since when to we reward executives for running a company into the ground? Bunch of dumbasses.

Cash for clunkers...can we trade in Congress??
