[THAT DIVISION ...]

What division?

What is the possible point of this poll? Are you really expecting anyone to select that they think AIG needs their money more?

I thought AIG was bailed out years ago. So now the issue is, the US govt wants to sell its stock in AIG to the public, so Mr. taxpayer gets most of his money back and maybe even makes a profit.

In what sense is selling AIG stock to the public a bailout?

pauleckler,

I would point out that this is also history. The Treasury sold it last stake in AIG on 12/14/2012.

If you believe Wikipedia, the USA made $22.7B on the AIG bailout.

AIG is now privately held and the government has no stake in the company.

OCD,

Technically the company is public, not private. But the government still has no stake.
