W.F.P.’s Plan for A.I.G.

It’s kind of hard to overstate just how unpopular A.I.G. is at the moment, so it’s not so suprising that it’s providing an opportunity for supporters of the millionaires tax to reshape their message, slightly.
From a press release by the Working Families Party:
The Working Families Party called today for a 100% state tax on the $165 million in announced bonuses at insurance giant AIG.
 
“If Washington can’t find a way to get this money back, Albany should,” said Dan Cantor, Working Families Party Executive Director. “The same people who helped wreck the economy are taking home millions in taxpayer-funded bonuses while classrooms, hospitals and homeless shelters here in New York face billions in cuts.
