Stop AIG from Giving Themselves $450 Million in Bonuses
If you had to find one single group of people to blame for our economic crisis, you’d definitely have to consider the financial products division of AIG.
They made huge, bad bets on the housing market that have cost taxpayers $170 billion…so far.1
But get this: The Washington Post just reported that these people are receiving $450 million in bonuses—and they got their first installment on Sunday.2 They destroyed our economy, and now they’re being rewarded for it with our bailout money!
President Obama has instructed Treasury Secretary Geithner to use “every single legal avenue to block these bonuses and make the American taxpayers whole.” But AIG isn’t budging—they claim that even after hundreds of billions of dollars and a direct request from the President, their “hands are tied.”
We need to turn up the heat.
Tomorrow, AIG’s executives are appearing before a House subcommittee, and we’ve got a chance to give them a piece of our minds.
Can you sign our petition and submit a question for the heads of AIG? Or better yet, an idea for how we should get our money back? If you do before 5 p.m. ET today, we’ll make sure it gets to the committee in time for tomorrow’s hearing.
