Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson wants congress to pass the proposed $700-billion financial system bailout as quickly as possible. What’s the rush?
At the top of the hour, we heard Marc’s interview with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on the Congressional response to the bailout bill. During the live part of our show, we got perspectives from Senator Ben Cardin and Congressman Elijah Cummings by telephone. In the studio, Marc and our callers talked with Kevin Zeese, executive director of the Campaign for Fresh Air and Clean Politics.
