Continuing -- my pro life to Cummings take a look at this whole mess of congress in Texas sticking around.
What happens now I mean I mean do that this whole thing is left a sour taste a lot of people's -- you know the banks are.
Other insurance companies are gonna come back tin cup in hand to the government to you guys wouldn't say.
I think what we're gonna say is that -- personalized thing.
We'll look at what happened -- it AIG.
And be clearance to the abuse that we had with regard to AIG.
Learn from that the president has made it clear speaker Pelosi that made it clear that we're gonna do everything we know how.
To put together the appropriate rules so that these things don't happen again.
And I think that we're gonna treat each one of these.
On a case by case basis we're gonna upfront say what we want to exceed -- the money.
Ask them what they plan to do -- it set timetables it's set goals.
And makes you this mining works on behalf of the American people I would romance and one other thing what are we gonna get our money back.
Because again keep in mind is all of this TARP funds -- need to bail out.
It's supposed to be about as getting our money back eventually so I think as an Africa Europe and that's -- that this is almost an elderly in this companies -- -- -- this is Neil.
-- this is America.
And we gotta -- -- we will be able to get it back you know I get out of the naysayers.
Standing on the sidelines going spit balls saying what we can't do we can do this and I think that would use -- -- almost 200 billion congressman.
You want history.
It added I think to be one of I don't mean to be a negative naysayer but that's a big chunk of change from a company that's just not making -- Yes -- making it now but I I do believe it's going to turn around the one thing that's for sure Neil is that our.
You cannot have an AIG doing the things it's been doing.
I've said many times that what President Obama has been trying to do.
It's bring about economic change so the weekend.
Get past where where we are.
Well every time.
And they act he does the kind of things they've been doing that is going on -- John Pittston and having -- retention bonuses and whatever it.
All it does is put ice when this same mountain.
A Barack Obama president Obama's trying to push us up.
-- so we've got to get to that because that goes to the integrity it goes that the people feeling confident that we can -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And then we're gonna do it but that's why it was so important for the president today to say no no we are not going to reward failure.
All right but let me ask Dennis -- down on the brink yet it's and it's a matter of -- get the money or they go go blow away.
Who's gonna say none of them.
-- you know I I think we've got to look at eats any decide we're looking at -- thirty billion as the president said today.
And we're going to make some careful judgment but again keep in mind -- You automatically know how to blowing you and let another -- their part of that too big to -- argument -- They are they very important company but the fact is is that we've got to look at AIG I think this I think this whole episode.
Is going to make put AIG under a microscope.
That -- -- and could never have imagined.
And I think having a President Mubarak.
Airplane you guys like a fiddle while they could do -- decides weakens they could do the bonuses.
Because they know that -- they raised the prospect of them going out of business and the reverberations of all of that you guys will run around like scared puppies.
Now on the up because I've added that one thing I said it five months ago.
And I'm sure other members of congress feel the same way I -- I would not -- And so these matters with regard to AIG -- resolved that I mean that's been.
Hours per day is dealing with the idea alienated in that -- -- you're a tough guy you need to stand right outside her office just stand there.
That's Aaliyah -- well just -- here I've got I've got 700000.
People in my district -- represent.
I can't just handed -- -- at this and F eight Z well I think generally -- they don't know they don't wonder what the pinellas allies at.
It was very good to have you -- we'll see what happens could be what you in the thank you very much all right allies to come.
