Bachus: AIG Stiffed Small U.S. Institutions, While Paying Off Foreign Banks in Full

Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-AL) just raised a new objection to the AIG counterparty payments–specifically that while AIG used government money to pay off their CDS obligations dollar-for-dollar to major (sometimes foreign) financial institutions, it repaid smaller U.S. institutions that made secured loans to AIG subsidiaries at a rate of only about 20 to 30 cents on the dollar.

Video forthcoming, but Geithner had no immediate answer to the query, which, to amateur ears anyhow, sounds like an interesting one. We’ll follow up.
