Report: Treasury approved excessive pay for executives at bailed-out AIG, GM and Ally

Source: WaPo

The report says Treasury bypassed rules under the 2008 bailout that limited pay. Treasury approved raises that exceeded pay limits and in some cases failed to link compensation to performance, it notes.

Christy Romero, the special inspector general for TARP, said the guidelines say compensation should not exceed the 50th percentile of pay for executives in similar positions at other financially distressed companies.

But pay surpassed that level for 63 percent of the executives whose pay was approved, according to the report.

The report also said Treasury officials had been warned a year ago that the department needed to reform its procedures to ensure that the pay guidelines are followed.

Facts Matter and Mitt Romney Didnít Deliver Them

While Mitt Romneyís rhetoric may have sounded polished tonight, it just wasnít true. On issue after issue, Romney avoided giving specifics and, in several instances, told flat-out falsehoods.

Itís no surprise why Ė the more Americans learn about Mitt Romneyís plans to raise taxes on the middle class to pay for tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires, to eliminate Wall Street reforms that protect middle class families from the abuses that caused the recession, and to repeal Obamacare with no plans to help individuals with pre-existing conditions, the less likely they are to support him.

Facts matter and Mitt Romney is unwilling to give them to the American people.
