No bail-out money for bonuses
I am sick and tired of the government saying that nothing can be done about the bonus money given to employees out of the bail-out money.
This was not money they earned, and therefore, it was not the institutions' money to give. It is the U.S. taxpayers' money!
When these entities are solvent again, they can then give bonus money to whomever they want. In the meantime, the government should insist that this money be given back to whomever gave it to them so it can be used as it was intended. This was not regular pay, therefore, it should be easy for these people to pay it back. And if they don't, a meaningful penalty should be put in place. -- Carol Strache, Frazee
