Forget the stimulus, lets talk about the bailout. Barney Frank, the guy who insisted we had to give the Fed unlimited power and no oversight IMMEDIATELY OR SOONER a few months ago, is now grilling the Fed over their irresponsible spending and questioning why they should be trusted to get the 2nd half of the money next month. Anyone else terrified to see how much this next bill is going to cost us?

I am disappointed in Frank, have always liked him, he did into a bill to decrim small amounts of mj which is a personal cause of mine. Clinton has admitted he made mistakes with the housing acts. If the dreaded bill that caused all this was signed in 1999 then the Rep majority congress that was in session at the time had a hand in it.
However, as far as I'm concerned this is a bipartisan, multi-level screw up. It took Reps, Dems Wall Street and people who got in over their heads mortgage wise to make the problem. Anyone who blames the whole thing on one side or another is a partisan hack.
