No other $45B turnaround investor would allow this payment. None in the whole gdamn world, with the exception of Russia for a personal friend of Vladimir.

Ken Lewis failed. $10M for failure is more than enough. To restore capitalism, we need to establish that you get rich for succeeding, and only for succeeding. Period.
