  1. Elizabeth Warren Slams Possible AIG Lawsuit: ‘It Would Be Outrageous’

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) slammed American International Group on Tuesday for thinking about suing the federal government over the $182 billion taxpayer bailout the insurance giant received during the financial crisis.

    AIG is considering whether to join a $25 billion shareholder lawsuit claiming that the terms of the bailout were unfair.

    “Beginning in 2008, the federal government poured billions of dollars into AIG to save it from bankruptcy. AIG’s reckless bets nearly crashed our entire economy. Taxpayers across this country saved AIG from ruin, and it would be outrageous for this company to turn around and sue the federal government because they think the deal wasn’t generous enough,” said Warren in a statement. “Even today, the government provides an ongoing, stealth bailout, propping up AIG with special tax breaks — tax breaks that Congress should stop. AIG should thank American taxpayers for their help, not bite the hand that fed them for helping them out in a crisis.”

    Warren’s outrage stood in contrast to the reaction from the White House, which declined to comment on the potential lawsuit Tuesday.

    Hi Sam,

    I love you. This email is re Alex Jones and Sandy Hook. Before you start calling Alex Jones a nutbag, I am asking you to please go to http://www.wbai.org. – the same website that airs Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now and go to their archives. Then look for Guns and Butter which airs on Fridays at 9am. Their show on Friday, January 11 had an interview with Prof James Tracy entitled Sandy Hook – Unanswered Questions and Missing Information. Listen to that interview and then tell me if Alex Jones is a nutbag. Sam, please do this.

    I really hope they gave him a get better gifts because I would personally feel sick after that. Everyone should stop taking everything so personal.
