House Rejects GOP Anti-AIG Resolution « The Washington Independent

Jul 31, 2020
Rep. Eric Cantor’s (R-Va.) office is spinning the rejection of H.R. 251, along party lines, as a de facto vote to “let AIG keep bonuses.”
Rep. Erik Paulsen and Rep. Leonard Lance offered a plan to direct the Secretary of the Treasury to implement a plan to recoup or stay the payment of AIG bonuses. To be clear, today’s vote was to stop the bonus payments on behalf of the American taxpayers.
I call this spin because everyone knows the Democrats are working on their own plan, and 1) knew that this resolution had no teeth and 2) weren’t going to let Republicans get a PR victory.
