France, where is our $12 Billion for helping out Société Générale ? All trade with France should be stopped (including wine and cheeses) until France has coughed up enough money to cover their share of the AIG Bailout.
Germany...I used too be a waiter, so know already how CHEAP YOU ARE...who cares, fork over the $12 Billion for Deutsche Bank bailout. Same thing...further, no $12 Billion, then pull out our troops.
Brittain, you got a lot of GALL bitching about Buy American protectionism when you owe us over $8.5 Billion for bailing out Barclay's!
Switzerland...cough up, you got $8 Billion for UBS.
Do the math folks...that is $40 BILLION IN US TAX DOLLARS instantly given over to foreign banks TO COVER THEIR BAD INVESTMENTS....if AIG HAS TO BE SAVED, LETS SHARE THE PAIN. How much of AIG's bailout has gone to other countries? Sorry, either these nations step in and cover their share of the bailout, or PULL THE PLUG ON AIG. It is time for the rest of the world to stop assuming that America will cover their bets.
Join the Moveon.org Peition To Congress on AIG
Dear MoveOn member,
If you had to find one single group of people to blame for our economic crisis, you'd definitely have to consider the financial products division of AIG.
They made huge, bad bets on the housing market that have cost taxpayers $170 billion...so far. That's more than $500 from every American.1
But get this: The Washington Post just reported that these people are receiving $450 million in bonuses—and they got their first installment yesterday.2 They destroyed our economy, and now they're being rewarded for it with our bailout money!
We can't let this stand. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and Congress need to do whatever it takes to get our money back.
Can you sign our petition today and then pass it on? We'll deliver it to Secretary Geithner and the congressional committees that supervise AIG. Clicking below will add your name:
