Neal Wolin, Treasury Nominee, Helped Draft Legislation Deregulating Banks
Hmmm. This isn't exactly confidence inspiring.
Tim Geithner's new nominee for number two at the Treasury Department, Neal Wolin, played a key role in drafting legislation in the late 1990s deregulating the banking system, a former Treasury Department official confirms to us.
Wolin's previous job? Serving as executive vice-president and general counsel at Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc., an insurance company that is needing billions and billions of OUR tax money to stay afloat.
Back in 2003, Wolin was petitioning the Congress to get rid of some burdensome regulations that was slowing Wall Street down.
Keep in mind that many of the sanctions against Iran have their genesis in the Treasury Department, sanctions that are a form of warfare against a country that is NOT our enemy, but is an "existential" enemy of Israel.
Where in the hell did all that money these con artists made during the housing bubble disappear to? It didn't just evaporate.
Wolin's background at Hartford should of given the Senate pause to investigate, but they rubber stamped his nomination. There's still a couple of trillion left to loot and precious little time left to do so.
The last looting took place when the public's eyes were focused on Iraq and body bags and scanning the skies for another "al Qaeda" hijacking courtesy of a dead man. What's going to be the distraction this time?
