Public Citizen's solution
1) A 100 percent tax on bonuses received by any individuals from a company getting bailout money
2) Assignment of government board members to any company getting bailout money that is proportional to the percentage of investment the government has in that company.
3) Prohibition on future bonuses for any company getting government bailout money in proportion to the government money invested in the company

Tell AIG What You Think: On March 17, we asked our activists to email us with messages they would like to send Edward M. Liddy, AIG's CEO. The following day, we hand-delivered these responses to Liddy, the press, and others present at a House subcommittee hearing. We had a great response! You can read many of the responses we received here.
Even though the hearing is over, we still want to read your messages. If you haven't sent in your response to Liddy already, you can email us at email@example.com.
A great way to help out with our campaign against irresponsible corporate spending is to spread the word to your friends and colleagues and get them to pledge their support by taking action and signing up for our emails. Simply show them this Web page and encourage them to sign up for our email alerts.
