Refund ALL The AIG Bonuses

There's quite a foofaraw going on right now over the employee bonuses that AIG is contractually obligated to pay out. I must say that they everyone who's received funding from AIG should be obligated to return those funds. Let's start with the politicians in D.C. before we even get to the AIG employees, shall we? If anyone needs to see who is truly responsible for the current misdirection it is none other than Chris Dodd, AIG's #1 recipient of funds and crafter of the bailout. Pshew...what's that smell?

Name Office Total Contributions
Dodd, Chris (D-CT) Senate $103,100
Obama, Barack (D-IL) Senate $101,332
McCain, John (R-AZ) Senate $59,499
Clinton, Hillary (D-NY) Senate $35,965
Baucus, Max (D-MT) Senate $24,750
Romney, Mitt (R) Pres $20,850
Biden, Joseph (D-DE) Senate $19,975
Larson, John B (D-CT) House $19,750
Sununu, John E (R-NH) Senate $18,500
Giuliani, Rudolph W (R) Pres $13,200
Kanjorski, Paul E (D-PA) House $12,000
Durbin, Dick (D-IL) Senate $11,000
Perlmutter, Edwin G (D-CO) House $10,500
Rangel, Charles B (D-NY) House $9,000
Edwards, John (D) Pres $7,850
Corker, Bob (R-TN) Senate $7,400
Smith, Chris (R-NJ) House $6,900
Neal, Richard E (D-MA) House $6,500
Rockefeller, Jay (D-WV) Senate $6,500
Reed, Jack (D-RI) Senate $6,000
Udall, Mark (D-CO) House $5,800
Maffei, Dan (D-NY) House $5,000
Nelson, Bill (D-FL) Senate $5,000
Warner, Mark (D-VA) Senate $5,000

And that's just the folks who took over $5K. Seems like there should be a lot of folks refunding money to AIG, if there weren't so many hypocrits in D.C. Apparently, no-one in D.C. can even stay bought these days. Guess there really isn't any honour or loyalty amongst thieves.
