    Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner asked Congress Tuesday to give the White House unprecedented powers to seize large insurers, investment firms and hedge funds, leaping beyond its present authority to seize only banks.

    Geithner argued for such authority during the House Financial Services Committee's hearing on the handling of bonuses paid to executives at American International Group.

    Without economic freedom there is no political freedom. Marxists realize this.

    Maybe that explains why Obama nominated the tax cheat in the first place.

    To be the point man for a government takeover of private industry.

    Are we getting a preview of what the entire Obama administration will be like? One government grab after another.

    Why do you resort to personal insults rather than posting your beliefs? If anyone acts like a 6 year old it is the members of this board who consistently post snide, derogatory, and down right insulting comments about people with whom they disagree. These types of attack are neither Christian nor are they acceptable debate strategies.

    Or do you just select certain members of the board to hurl your verbal assaults at?:(

    Under Bush we bought 80% of AIG which is not a bank but an insurance company.

    As one of your buddies told me, "Stop whining!" :laugh:

    I find it funny that when I make a comment about Geithner acting like a 6 year old that some of you think I'm talking about you. Well, if the shoe fits...

    JC, Read the post and see what is included in O'bama rex's power grab. Furthermore, President Bush did not seize control of AIG which is what O'bama rex wants to do.
