#1 "But the firms seized on a loophole by granting payouts before filing."

"Seized on a loophole" like hyenas over a zebra. And I suppose that loophole will be closed very soon? Yeah, right.

And we should hardly be surprised. Although I different scenario, I think the most egregious was United Airlines C-Suite pukes receiving (awarding themselves?) bonuses when they demanded their employees to take pay cuts after 9/11 to "save the company".

#2 Close the loophole with a 365 days prior to filing time limit.

#3 In fairness, their efforts in diversity, Muslim outreach and climate change initiatives have been outstanding.

And isn't that the whole point of corporations?

#4 99% of corp execs these days are idiots. That is why their companies are in bankruptcy in the first place.
