Congress Yells At Treasury Over Bailout . . . Nothing Changes

Congressmen Kucinich, Issa and Cummings let the head of Treasury's bailout program, Neil Kashkari, have it today.

Here's Kucinich:

Here's Issa:

Here's Cummings:

The spleen-venting might have felt good, but it is likely that nothing will change. Indeed, Congressman Cummings begged Kashkari to stay on into the Obama administration.

Many people - including some congress people and Senators - said when the bailout was being debated, giving Treasury authority over the bailout based on the government's claims of dire economic threat was just like giving the White House authority to wage war against Iraq based on claims of a dire threat of Iraqi-lined terrorism.

We were right.


  1. After separate for one year, I can not leave you, leave Entropiauniverse ped . Now I buy Entropia Universe Gold again, I do not want to leave you, but at that time, I have no idea. Buy Entropia Universe Money is the thing I want to do for long time. I know that cheap Entropiauniverse ped is your life. So I will try my best and do not let you pass away. In my mind, I think I Buy Entropia Universe Gold is the fate.

  2. Do you like playing in the game which you need to use wow gold, when you do not have World of Warcraft Gold, you must borrow warcraft gold from friends, or you buy wow gold. If you get cheap wow gold, you can continue this game.
