We have been talking a lot lately about whether the government can spend our money better than we can. I don't know whether that is true or not, but they do spend our money differently than we would ever spend it. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123707854113331281.html
The article that i have linked in this post explains how the government is giving our money to AIG. They will in turn be giving 165 million dollars in bonuses to executives in the company who have obviously done an outstanding job. Tell me that this is how we would spend our money. I would quote the article in saying that the use of our money in this way is "distasteful and difficult." We deserve to have our taxes go towards fixing the problem and not towards rewarding failure.
