One More Comment on Chris Dodd's Being *Misled* On Bonus Language

I saw the other day that Dodd said, as an excuse for why he added bonus language to a bill that would allow AIG to pay out bonuses, that he was *misled*.

The Connecticut Democrat said he was approached by Treasury Department officials about changing language in the $787 billion stimulus bill while it was in conference committee, and "I thought it was technical at the time."..

Dodd, attending an event in Enfield, Conn., said if he had known the purpose of the change "was to protect bonuses ... I would have flatly rejected it."

He said he was "disappointed" that those who requested the change "didn't have the courage to stand up" and admit they sought the language alterations.

Hello! Dodd! You're a poltiican. You of all people ought to know more than a lot of us ignorati in the public that anyone that wants changes has a purpose that undoubtedly is to benefit somebody. I am utterly griped that you, as one of the people who are in charge of making decisions with money, did not investigate and force the treasury department to justify the language alteration-AND then, because common sense would tell you this is a stupid thing to do, to stand up and NOT DO IT. YOU didn't stand up and tell the truth about this in the first place.

I'm the fool, I guess. I expect the people who are elected in office, regardless of party, to at least read the frigging bills and NOT to make any changes to bills without vigorous, open debate. I'm tired of people rushing to pass bills, laws, regulations, etc that benefit certain people who most likely have been shmoozing the hardest. I used to think that the politicians were all very busy and had little time to read the bills. Now I'm convinced that they aren't interested in doing so because one of their pals might lose out.

Just don't tell me you were *misled*. That is an insult to MY intelligence.
