Brown Says Presidential Candidates Not Wanted in Washington

by Janet Crain

U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), a member of the Senate Banking Committee, just made a statement on FOXNews that the bailout was near being solved yesterday when McCain showed up. Implying he should have stayed out of it. This despite the fact that Harry Reid, democrat requested McCain's help.

He went on to say that the Presidential candidates should get on with running for President and leave the bailout to those in the committee working on it. He further stated the financial crisis was all the Republicans' fault for deregulating banking, etc. He completely ignored Bill Clinton's contribution.

It seems like a very arrogant statement to me. One of these men, McCain or Obama, will be elected President on Nov. 4th, 2008. Even if Barack Obama fails to realize this, the next President will have to live with the outcome of this bailout, perhaps more intimately than anyone else.

AmI wrong? Shouldn't both of these men be there at the table? Please leave a comment:

The Bill the Democrats proposed fell apart before John McCain even got there. That is a lot of hog swallow who tells a sitting U.S. Senator don't do your job get lost because it is an election season? The corrupt.

This is from Newsbusters I will get the link this is why John McCain came to Washington to stop this. The "Progressive wing of the Democrat Party" didn't like it. What did he accomplish he got the House Republicans a seat at the table the above faction can't ram through their "Bill" have a look at what it included VVVVVVV

Dems Bailout Proposal Redirects 'Paulson's Profits' To Left-Wing Groups... Will Media Notice?

Bush told the country that we are in an economic crisis and his Treasury Secretary, Henry Paulson, came up with an idea that would, it is claimed, end up actually making money for the U.S. Treasury in the long run. That's all well and good, but the Democrats already have a plan to siphon off any repayment of the people's money back to the treasury by adding one little line to the agreement that would end up stealing money from any repayments and giving it to left-wing political advocacy groups like ACORN, the National Urban League and the Hispanic group La Raza. Instead of trying to help the economy, the Democrats just want more money for their left-wing political constituents. It's business as usual for the Democrats, of course, but a bigger question is will the media let them get away with it?

On Thursday, the Senate Democrats shopped around a one page "Agreement in Principle" from the U.S. Senate Banking Committee that laid out their proposal for the bailout of the economy. At first it all seems rather straight forward, but hidden inside this document is one little line that proves that Democrats aren't as interested in the economy as they are in trying to extort a payday for their favorite political advocacy groups. Yes, even in a bill as important as the bailout the Democrats are trying to stuff it with pork!
