36. Too Many Questions
I am uncomfortable with politicians of either party making these kinds of decisions based on information from political appointees from the very industry that is falling apart. We need to demand the time to get input from the worlds leading economists. We also, need to define the goal of this bill. Are we trying to save some large banks or are we trying to save the economy? The actions required may differ dramatically. We ned answers and a more defined problem with a defined desired outcome. We have a government running around like the building is on fire but no one has addressed the core of the problem.
