Vox Populi

What, if anything, should the government do about the $165 million given out in bonuses to employees at AIG?

I think they should collect all of the money and give it to people so they can come to Aspen and spend it.

Morally, it’s not right. The way I see it, the ones at the top in that little nest ought not to have it. They are screwing the little guys.

They should absolutely prohibit them from getting them. There needs to be some punitive measure to get it back, or tax them.

I think the government should stop propping up AIG. The taxpayers are funding the walking dead.

The best I’ve heard is 100 percent taxation on the money. Either they return it, or you take it. They’re being rewarded for being morons.

They should find a way to give it back. They make way too damn much money.

Get rid of the politicians and start from scratch.
