In my opinion, this man is a prime example of what is wrong with our country. From CNN Money:
The former head of the American International Group sued the U.S. government for $25 billion on Monday, claiming officials should have bailed out AIG instead of taking it over.
Maurice “Hank” Greenberg and his Starr International Company accused officials of discriminating against AIG.
I guess now that “corporations are people too” they can be discriminated against. Treasury’s response is spot-on:
“It is important to remember that the government provided assistance to AIG — and stopped it from collapsing — in order to prevent a meltdown of the entire global financial system,” Tim Massad, assistant secretary for financial stability, said in a statement.
Yes, but he didn’t make as much money on the deal as he thought he could. And that’s what matters.
