Amid AIG Furor, Dodd Tries to UNDO Bonus Protections in the 'Dodd Amendment' Rules
Tuesday, March 17, 2009

While the Senate was constructing the $787 billion stimulus last month, Dodd added an executive-compensation restriction to the bill. The provision, now called “the Dodd Amendment” by the Obama Administration provides an “exception for contractually obligated bonuses agreed on before Feb. 11, 2009” -- which exempts the very AIG bonuses Dodd and others are now seeking to tax. [They ALL knew about the bonuses all along! Now these BUFFOONS want us to believe they just found out and are surprised!]

Dodd’s original amendment did not include that exemption, and the Connecticut Senator denied inserting the provision.

I can't point a finger at someone who was responsible for putting those dates in,” Dodd told FOX. “I can tell you this much, when my language left the senate, it did not include it. When it came back, it did.” [Do you now understand why it is SO IMPORTANT that these bills get READ before they get signed!!! What a BUFFOON! That EXCUSE is completely UNACCEPTABLE!]
