American International Groupofficially starts its drive to re-IPO Wednesday, but dreams of a blockbuster sale have faded with the steady decline in AIG's shares.

The stakes are high for the U.S. Treasury, which owns 92 percent of AIG after bailing out the insurer multiple times during and after the financial crisis.

With that in mind, do you think the government should bail out AIG or any other major financial company if it needed money to stay afloat?
