Senator Begich: You sir are a Liar. (Update with video of Begich Lying)

On the Eddie Burke show, Eddie had asked Begich numerous times if he had read the stimulus package. Begich had said yes he did.

I am checking to see if the interview is available.

Update: H/T C4p

From the mouths of liars.....

Begich Joins Senators Asking AIG to Give Back Bonuses

U.S. Sen. Mark Begich today joined Senate Democrats in sending a letter to the Chairman and CEO of American International Group (AIG) telling the company to give back multi-million dollar bonus payments or Congress will take action to impose severe tax penalties on the payments.

“The actions by AIG executives to use money designed to get the company back on its feet for executive bonuses is outrageous and incredibly selfish,” Sen. Begich said. “Alaskans and other Americans work hard every day without the benefit of bailouts and bonuses. The fact that AIG is rewarding the same employees that were involved in the meltdown that led to the company needing taxpayer bailout funds is reprehensible.”

Senator Begich, I thought you said the stimulus bill wasn't that complicated. Better yet, maybe you did read it and just got caught lying along with the other Dimwits.

Make this one go viral

HIGH IMPACT - Thanks to our stimulus spending bill search engine and browser, we discovered that Obama granted AIG a free legal pass to give high bonuses because of the following stipulation in Obama’s stimulus bill he personally orchestrated and signed into law:

From page H1412 of the Final Stimulus Bill, “SEC. 111. EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE:

“(iii) The prohibition required under clause (i) shall not be construed to prohibit any bonus payment required to be paid pursuant to a writte employment contract executed on or before February 11, 2009, as such valid employment contracts are determined by the Secretary or the designee of the Secretary.”

This amendment provides an exception for contractually obligated bonuses agreed on before Feb. 11, 2009, which exempts the very AIG bonuses Obama is condemning every single chance he gets. The amendment is in the final version and is law.
