March 26 (Bloomberg) — U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said regulation of the U.S. financial system needs a broad overhaul to heal a crippling lack of confidence caused by the credit crisis.

“To address this will require comprehensive reform,” Geithner said at a House Financial Services Committee hearing. “Not modest repairs at the margin, but new rules of the game.”

Yup. It’s just a game to this idiot!

Folks on Wall Street think it is all “monopoly money”. And, a big game.

With everyone’s retirement going up in smoke, this ass should be in jail for tax fraud. Not running the treasury!

It shows how poor an executive O is.

I judge Presidents partially on who they pick!

WASHINGTON, March 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The leader of the nation’s largest veterans organization says he is “deeply disappointed and concerned” after a meeting with President Obama today to discuss a proposal to force private insurance companies to pay for the treatment of military veterans who have suffered service-connected disabilities and injuries. The Obama administration recently revealed a plan to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in such cases.

“It became apparent during our discussion today that the President intends to move forward with this unreasonable plan,” said Commander David K. Rehbein of The American Legion. “He says he is looking to generate $540-million by this method, but refused to hear arguments about the moral and government-avowed obligations that would be compromised by it.”

Here come the “liberal” form of government and how it honors “social contracts”. You go fight for the gooferment and, when you come back hurt, that gooferment will bill your insurance company. That won’t make the insurance companies happy. (I’d expect litigation over that bill!)

Just like “federalizing” the National Guard. It’s a racket.

Argh!
