Ungrateful a little? Government might be sued by company it bailed out with $182 billion

AIG grew so large but screwed up so royally that had it failed, it could have crashed the global economy. And it would have failed if the U.S. government not stepped in.

In order to avoid that worst-case-scenario, the government bailed out the company - saved it from absolute ruin - to the tune of $182 billion.

Now AIG executives are contemplating suing the government.

Any wonder why people have so much disdain for some of the decisions made by Wall Street execs?
