If I recall correctly the bonus restrictions were added after the bailout was already underway.
If they had received the bailout with notice that there would be restrictions on how they used the bailout money up front, I wouldn't have any problems with the restriction.
As is, I think the government should not have added restrictions to how the money was used. Why should they be able to modify a contract after it is already signed and executed?
It's like telling your neighbor you'll lend him $20 bucks (without asking why but understanding he intends to pay you back), then after lending it to him, giving him a call later that day saying, "You can't use the $20 bucks to buy beer, and since money is fungible, you can't buy any beer until you pay me back. If you do, then I'm going to fine you." Obviously you don't have the power to fine him, but the government does.

From your cite:

Back in June, the Department of Insurance - funded largely through fees and assessments on the insurance industry - handed out iPads costing about $1,000 apiece to 31 senior staffers.
Apparently they don't even know the retail cost of an Ipad.

Apple Computer’s involvement in elementary education in the early 1980s was a work of marketing genius. The then-fledgling company offered to donate one Apple II system to each elementary school in the country — that is, once the government guaranteed them certain tax advantages in exchange for their corporate largesse.
Many schools accepted Apple’s generosity. Immediately, they all faced the same question: “What does a school with hundreds, or in some cases thousands of students do with one computer?”
For many, the answer was to buy more Apple computers, build computer labs, and create computing programs. And, as schools began equipping labs with discounted Apple equipment, parents of elementary school children began buying up Apple II computers for use at home, paying full price.
Nearly 10 years later, elementary schools continue to buy Apple II technology. As a result, the strategy has kept what many industry observers contend is an overpriced and technically obsolete system in the mainstream. And it provided Apple with a virtual lock on the elementary school market that continues today.

Big business profits from big government schemes. It's small business and the average joe that suffers.
Have you not noticed those liberals at Apple rolling in cash?

|ASG||Instead of saying "not surprising," I'd be curious if the conservatives here would actually express their opinion as to whether these raises/bonuses should have been interfered with.|
