U.S. President Barack Obama (R) makes comments on the economic recovery package and American International Group (AIG) with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on the South lawn at the White House in Washington, March 18, 2009. Obama on Wednesday assailed AIG's hefty executive bonuses as an "inappropriate use of taxpayer funds," saying the government needed tools to prevent a situation like AIG's from ever again posing a risk to the financial system.
