Pelosi, Rangel rushing to tax AIG and other bonuses 90%; This caused a revolution once…

Punishment by tax is unconstitutional becaue that is the kind of trickery pulled to punish our Founders the colonists: by the King of England.

So are the Democrats sure they want to vote on a 90% tax for AIG and others like them?

Guess who loves this good thinking?  Nancy Pelosi and Charlie Rangel.

These guys are eating my lunch….

Second idea; the Democrats want to rush this to a vote in the House: the same kind of brainless conduct that brought us the stimulus and the AIG bonuses in the first place.
