    Borrowed the headline from Drudge ...

    the Obama administration will order the companies that received the most aid to deeply slash the compensation to their highest paid executives

    The way I see it, unions and union members also benefitted and should have their salaries slashed and assets seized.

    Think DOHbama will slash his own pay, along with his czars and congress? They also receive tax payer money.

    How many were laid off or took cuts in pay? I'm sure a number of them did.

    I'm talking about the ones still there. Plenty of Wall Streeters have lost jobs and/or 401k's. Besides, how much of GM is union owned now?

    Wonder if DOHbama will run these companies into the ground and sell them to his buddies at a discount. Along the lines of GM or insider trading oil type deals that Soros got.

    I may get flamed for this, but it wouldnt be the first time. The taxpayers want their money back! We propped these jackass's up, and no one knows where the money went anyway. No accountability. So, we are just going to let them write themselves big bonus checks again? Not so fast. If I invest in a company or save one from going down, I damn sure get some say in how I am going to get my investment back. You guys can limp along until your debt has been repaid. The problem as I see it is you must have the right people overseeing the job. You just cant run around screaming socialism or government intervention on this one. We want our money back, we need our money back.
