"Recipients of these bonuses will not be able to keep all of their money," declared Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in an unusually strong threat delivered on the Senate floor.
"If you don't return it on your own, we will do it for you," echoed Chuck Schumer of New York.
Our elected leaders want to take money away from private citizens, just because they feel bad about the bonus situation. The bonuses were contracted payments, they can not be taken away.
This is driving me nuts, take away all the welfare payments when anyone on assistance is caught with drugs, when the government starts to do that, well, then they can mess with these bonuses, until then, shut up.
The house voted to steal the money back from the people who earned it. This is insane, our government simply deciding that certain American citizens are to be taxed at special rates?
what is going on?
