Today in the mail I received a bill. Yeah, yeah. Shocker! There's no need to feign surprise. This is as typical for me as it is for anyone else. But when I looked more closely at the the bill for my new red couch, I realized that the loan was through AIG. The very same AIG that the government bailed out so AIG top execs could float their golden parachutes over some tropical paradise.
Now, if my taxes are paying for AIG and I owe them money, shouldn't I just pay myself?
And does this mean everyone who pays taxes is insured? Afterall, how can you own an insurance company and not be insured?
