AIG, Obama and Dodd

Fox News is reporting that the bonuses AIG gave to executives was actually about 53 million dollars more than reported.

According to the Wall Street Journal, however, the top two recipients of AIG campaign donations was Barack Obama ($104,332) and Senator Chris Dodd ($103,900)! Obama and Dodd were followed by McCain ($59,499) and Hillary Clinton ($37,965).

If the executives have to give back their bonuses, why shouldn't President Obama and Congress have to give back their "bonuses" too? After all, President Obama and Congress are the ones who made AIG legally obligated to pay the executive bonuses in the first place!
