HuffPost's Editor, Roy Sekoff, was on The Ed Show Wednesday night to discuss the latest AIG outrage: the refusal of company executives to follow through on their promise to return $45 million in bonuses by the end of the year.
While agreeing with Ed Schultz that this amounted to "business as usual on Wall Street," Sekoff lamented the American public's habit of "getting really mad about the little things, and then we lose sight of the big outrages."
Among the "major outrages" Sekoff cited: the sweetheart $38 billion tax break the IRS just gave Citibank, the fact that the nation's four biggest banks have cut lending by $100 billion over the last six month, and the fact that banks and their lobbyists have "gutted all the financial reforms that would make sure that another AIG didn't happen again."
