House votes to tax AIG bonuses

To the tune of 90 percent. We’ll see if the Senate does likewise and this bit of taxpayer outrage becomes a reality. I don’t like government being used in this fashion, but AIG is a pretty unsympathetic victim.

From the link:

Spurred on by a tidal wave of public anger over bonuses paid to executives of the foundering American International Group, the House voted 328 to 93 on Thursday to get back most of the money by levying a 90 percent tax on it.

  1. The infrared receiver which is required to use the ZV1 must
    be purchased separately for about $20 USD. This wireless laptop mouse is a perfect
    companion for anyone on the go. By popping inside SD credit
    card, you is going to be able to import images or snap shots very
    at exceptional speeds.

    Deciding where to put the cabling for ten speakers is more difficult.
    Your computer is a treasure chest of digital sound opportunities.

  3. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after reading through some of the
    post I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless,
    I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back
    frequently!
