I think the issue here is not the bonuses per say, but it is the sleazy lying about who knew what and the fear and scape goating game that the Obama administration is playing here.
They wrote the bonus protections into the bill, Obama signed it. Said he was to stupid to read it. Come to find out THEY insisted on putting it in.
And people and thier families are being theatened over Obama's shennennigans.
"exploiting a crisis", indeed.
