Iran is executing some crooked bankers. If we did that, it would be a growth industry. A more appropriate punishment would be to take everything away from them right down to their silk shorts and give them some clothes from the Thrift Store. Then make Walmart give them a job as a third shift shelf stock-er, but only guaranteed for a year, then they would be on their own, literally. As a condition of their stay of execution they could not work at any other kind of job or otherwise be receive money at above minimum wage . No government assistance of course, let them pull themselves up by their bootstraps.
Ed DeMarco heads the Federal Housing Finance Agency that oversees Fannie and Freddie The Treasury Dept is willing to pay 63 cents on the dollar to have loan balances reduced in order to refinance them at current rates low interest rates. This jackass refuses to implement the President's policy not because it will negatively impact his agency, it will save money by reducing defaults, but because he doesn't approve of it. Liberals (and sane people in general) are calling for his head on a plate.
Turns out that Mittens has been avoiding telling the truth (nit pickers might call it lying). According to a source inside Bain, Romney went for ten years without paying any taxes, and he is worth much more than the 300 million that we know about. This information was conveyed to Harry Reid by somebody that he knows well. Reid being a Mormon wouldn't lie about another Mormon, that's one of the really big sins, although he can't swear to the veracity of his friend. The Romney campaign has responded with much screaming and rending of garments over the "insults", but do not deny a word of it.
