What sarcasm? It was a completely inaccurate characterization of what happened. The way congress was portraying it, the top 100 execs in the company went on a bender after getting the bailout. Turns out, it's independent contractors who sell AIG insurance that went on the retreat as a perk; you know, the insurance agent down the street who sold you your house insurance. Obama wants them fired. It's a little hard to fire people who don't actually work for you, they just sell your product.Originally posted by: Pastore

Eh, it was an independent insurance salesmen hoo rah rah circle jerk we sold whole life to idiots event
not the exec bailout celebration congress made it out to be. hooray for reporting accuracy.
It does not matter who went, it appears bad, and when you're asking the government for a handout, it doesn't show good judgement to spend cash like this. If they're hurting so bad that they have to ask the taxpayer for help, what are they doing spending $400k on something like this?
