Oh Great

What the hell is the Government? A job provider for ex-Goldman Sachs employees?

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — The Treasury Department on Monday sought to answer the first of many questions surrounding how it will implement the $700 billion financial rescue plan.
The department announced that Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson had appointed Neel Kashkari to oversee the Troubled Assets Relief Program and the newly created Office of Financial Stability.
Kashkari, a former executive at Goldman Sachs, is currently the assistant secretary of the Treasury for International Economics and Development.

Great. Let’s keep rewarding the guys who helped get us into this mess. I’m sure he will not let these firms over charge US for these assets they are dumping.

    Not the whole government. Just Treasury. It seems to be Goldman’s DC branch office.

    Mr. B, don’t you work around Wall Street? Maybe you could get a position with the bail out crew.
    Just remember the friends whom you left behind. 😉

    Yeah, but “cashcarry”? It’s like manna from heaven for comedy writers.

    They would not like it if I were there, Jeff.
    I’d go after all this spending with a machete.

    That’s why I want you to remember us, Mr. B!

    I guess Jon Corzine was too busy screwing up New Jersey to take the gig at the “Office of Financial Stability.”

    Well, Jim, you know darn well he had a gig in Treasury all sewn up had his gal Hillary been able to seal the deal.
