"Frankly, what I'm trying to do with the help of AIG is get some of that [taxpayer] money back."


Please don't shake your finger threateningly at me like that again, sir, until you have my $45 billion in it.


"I am as troubled as Main Street is by the contracts," Kenneth R. Feinberg said in an interview, referring to agreements signed before the financial crisis that promised millions in retention bonuses to employees at AIG's troubled Financial Products unit. But, he added, "there's a limited amount of leverage when you have valid, grandfathered contracts."

Really? Because Main Street is troubled enough to grab the flaming pitchforks, what are YOU doing, KF?
