US lawmakers in the House of Representatives have voted in favour of a bill to levy a 90% tax on big bonuses from firms bailed out by taxpayers.

The move follows outrage over the decision by AIG to award its employees $165m in bonuses after taking $170bn in aid from the government.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said: "We want our money back and we want our money back now for the taxpayers."


90% tax. Now we're talking.

:yay:
