However, the Fed's failure to crack down on shady mortgage practices during the housing boom has irked Congress and consumer groups. So has its decision not to speed up implementation of new rules providing consumers with better protections from abusive credit card practices.

Democrats and Republicans challenged Geithner on other details of the plan. Democratic Sens. Charles Schumer of New York and Jon Tester of Montana pressed Geithner to explain why the administration did not seek greater consolidation of regulatory agencies.

  • Re-election in 2010 The dems know their assess are on the way out.....its time to bring BALANCE back to Washington. SO of course they are concerned about Obama....they, the dems want to get re-elected next year. WE need a NEW congress next year and they know it. We are sick of these political parties sitting on their ass doing nothing but spending the tax payers money.

  • Just what I was going to say anon. However there are a few dems in congress that are fairly moderate with Schumer NOT being one of them (hmm). That is why Roosevelt tried to pack the court because he couldn't get some of his radical agenda passed. Then he did end up losing congress.

  • Yep, and Geithner got pretty ticked off that he was being questioned like he was. Good for the Senators that are finally seeing the writing on the wall.
