Merrill Lynch showers $3.6 billion in bonuses before takeover by B of A

$3.6 billion? Unbelievable. I heard on another program tonight that that's more than we give the entire continent of Africa in financial aid. (AC360 had a really good report on the bonuses but I can't get it.) These people are taking taxpayer money for their failure and destruction of our economy and meanwhile rewarding themselves billions. They just don't get it. They don't deserve this money and should pay it back, even if it means tightening their own belts and getting rid of the house in the Hamptons and some of their other perks. This is outrageous.

I'm glad it's coming to light and something's being done about it. These Rockefeller wannabes must get real.
