The truth is that the codicil [that enabled payment of the bonuses] was added in conference by mutual agreement of House and Senate Democrats and the White House.
So when the President says he knew nothing of the bonuses until recently, one has to ask, so just who at "the White House" was signing off on this legislative provision? Did anyone bother to read the contracts that the provision was backstopping -- you know, the ones that apparently guaranteed the bonuses?
And if they're this sloppy about this, how, exactly, do these people think that the government deserves a bigger role in, say, health care?
