RUSH: I’m sitting here, I’m thinking about these people at AIG who received the bonuses who are now the subject, they are the focus of debate going on now in the House of Representatives over whether to tax their bonuses 90%. The Obama administration insisted that these bonuses be paid in the stimulus bill, but I’m wondering how many of the people who received these bonuses voted for Obama? I wonder how many of them vote for Democrats? I wonder how many of them give money to Democrats? Remember, now, it’s not just their taxes. Andrew Cuomo, the attorney general of New York, and Barney Frank, the Banking Queen, are all focused, they’re both focused on, making sure these people’s names are released to the public and how much they earn, and how much their bonuses were, and they don’t like this invasion of privacy.
How many of them voted for Obama? How many of them voted for Democrats? How many of them gave money? You have to figure that a decent percentage of them did. It’s the Northeast, it’s New York, and it’s a myth that Wall Street is a conservative bastion, ladies and gentlemen. Very, very interesting.
