The AIG employee bonuses of 165 million dollars are 0.165 billion dollars, and 0.000165 trillion dollars. Quite an insignificant amount when compared to the total cost of the AIG bailout, and even less significant when compared to the $ trillion+ financial institution bailout.
And very insignificant when compared to probable total cost of Iraqi and Afghan wars, which will ultimately cost the taxpayers at least $ 2 trillion, if not more.
Yet, these AIG bonuses caused more uproar than the other $ 3 trillion being spent totally needlessly because of greed and lies and absolute corruption and incompetence within the Bush administration, and of course including many members of the US Congress.
