Yes, you read that right. There were 87 Republicans, including minority leader John Boehner, who believe AIG executives should keep their bonuses. Or in more blunt terms, the majority of house republicans believe that taxpayers should give a handout to wealthy executives who essentially committed fraud.
I don’t think I need to spell out the implications of this vote for anyone. Let’s just remember this the next time republican’s rally against , wasteful government spending, burdening taxpayers, or opposing “handouts” to the poor.
