It's now official - the United States is run by monkeys.
HP message to the Democrats and any other government official who thinks it's a good idea to spend hard-working taxpayer money bailing out housing gamblers:
GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS.
Now if the Democrats would like to be useful, start by cracking down on the out-of-control and unregulated REIC. And send the SEC after Angelo Mozilo.
Monkeys I tell ya. Monkeys.
Democrats to Unveil Foreclosure Plan - Democratic Lawmakers to Call on White House to Create Special Mortgage Market Adviser
Top congressional Democrats will call Wednesday for the Bush Administration to appoint an adviser to coordinate the federal government's response to mounting foreclosures around the country.
The effort by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others is an attempt by Democrats to step up pressure on the White House to respond to the troubles in the housing market.
Democrats have been critical of the Bush administration's response to the mortgage market problems, which started among loans made to borrowers with weak credit and has spread to other loans.
White House spokesman Tony Fratto rejected the concept of a special adviser, saying the government's housing secretary, Alphonso Jackson, is already attuned to the issue.
"If you want to talk about inaction, you need to look no further than Congress," Fratto said, citing a lack of progress on legislation to reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and overhaul the Federal Housing Administration, which guarantees mortgages for low-income borrowers.
