    Let's not forget who passed the laws that caused the blow up and who was running the show when the blow up started.

    One could argue that that happened with the anti trust exemption in 1946 for the insurance industry.

    Or Google for that matter

    CEO's should not get perks when they are incompetent, leading a company to bankrupcty is not a sign of competence. Losing billions of dollars is more of a sign of incompetence. The time of the incompent is worthless. Best to keep them on a Greyhound bus so that they cant make many more incompetent decisions which cost their shareholders even more money
    One small fact to consider...Benmosche wasn't CEO of AIG when they got the bailout or when they lost billions. He's only been CEO since last August.

    Have you ever wondered why if CEO's are so important and worth those outrageous salaries and perks why is it a company can go months without one? I do.

    Yes, let's NOT forget. It was the Gramm-Bliley Act that dismantled the Glass-Steagal protections that triggered the events which eventually resulted in the blow up.

    Phil Gramm = Republican

    I won't be a political hack and lay this on the Republican party. Bill Clinton signed the bill into law, and Democrats supported it, as well as Republicans.
