So We Were Correct

Earlier we mentioned that the brouhaha over AIG's $165,000,000 in bonuses covered up something worse. Now we know that money appropriated to help the ailing insurance company actually went to Goldman Sachs and foreign banks:
1. Goldman Sachs: $12,900,000,000

2. Société Générale (France) $11,900,000,000

3. Deutsche Bank (Germany) $11,800,000,000

4. Barclays (United Kingdom) $7,900,000,000

Adding insult to injury, Goldman Sachs now says they didn't really need it.

As I said before, it's our blood, sweat, and tears, but it's just Monopoly money to them.
