Bonus Tax
Congress will vote today on a 90% tax on bonus payments given to executives of any company that received more than $5B in federal bailout money. Plus, Tom looks back ten years to the beginning of the financial crisis and the "Commodity Futures Modernization Act".

The AIG debacle may cause Sen. Dodd, Tim Geithner and others to lose their jobs.  Can "Tiny Tim" turn things around?  And, Tom gets to the bottom of the confusion over the Dodd Amendment.  Plus, Tom talks to former Rep. Rob Simmons of Connecticut who plans to challenge Sen. Dodd next year.
