Connecticut in maelstrom: AIG blames state law for controversial bonuses
Yes folks, you read it right. AIG - a.k.a. American International Group or, according to Rep. Paul Hodes, D-N.H., "Arrogance, Incompetence and Greed" - has gone and pinned the whole stimulus bonus mess on the state of Connecticut and our antiquated labor laws.
In other words, it's our fault.
WE'RE to blame...which reminds me of a song.
Edward Liddy and the rest of the AIG leadership team, this one's for you.
