Instead of making us pay $2,000 per person in taxes for the bailout why don't they scratch that and freeze the bank accounts of the Highest paids Executives from these companies that got in trouble in the first place. Freeze their accounts as well as the members from the House Finance Committee and Congress. Take what they need PLUS charge a 75% STATUS LUXURY TAX for a year on all celebrities and politicians. Celebrities make an ungodly amount of money and politicians seem to make these decisions that effect us. Why not turn it around that the small amount of society who is making ungodly amounts get hit for a year to make up the amount? What do you think? I'm not paying the extra $2,000 a year... why should I? The idiots in Congress/Senate can nod their heads and make a decision that effects us and not think of something better? Btw, fire everyone involved.. Paulson, Frank, Dodds.. republicans democrats.. I know I would never do business with AIG... do they really think they will bring in business after they took advantage of the money that was awarded to them??? Think about all the celebrities that could willingly come together and raise the money but they won't, why... cuz they don't have the heart. Firemen and police risk their lives every day and don't get paid what they truly deserve. I say create a special tax on theses celebrities and make them chip in for once.
