In Support of Carolyn Maloney for NY Senate, Part Two…

As we approach Hillary’s confirmation hearing next week, and the subsequent appointment of a replacement to fulfill her term as the Junior Senator of NY, let’s see what the fabulous Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) has been up to the past few weeks, to get a further view of how very qualified and ready she is for this very important role. She is a worker and a fighter, and we have never seen her rest on her laurels.

She IS campaigning for the spot, quietly, with the people directly…

Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY)  was in Buffalo to listen and learn. She sits on the Financial Services committee and is Vice-chair of the House/Senate Economic Committee. She will be right in the middle of forming the largest economic stimulus bill in the history of Earth. It should be finalized in the coming weeks. People in Buffalo know all too well how important it is to have their voices heard in the room when the details of laws are being written. We got our message across about what infrastructure we needed to spend the stimulus on, and it’s getting carried to Congress for us by Rep. Carolyn Maloney.

Part Two:

This final clip comes to us courtesy of House Speaker Pelosi’s channel:

The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held a hearing titled, The Role of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the Financial Crisis. The hearing examined the extent to which the actions and policies of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac may have contributed to the ongoing crisis.

If you are in NYS please call or email Governor Paterson and speak for experienced, hands-on, hard-working representation. Ask for the fighter, ask for Carolyn Maloney to take the soon to be vacant Senate seat..

    Well I have seen that hearing actually, thank you tho for linking it for others :0)

    Meeks apologized and issued a statement saying how very wrong he was at the FAN FRED heairngs and what he has learned…he was of course the only Democrat to do so. HA!

    I agree that the DEMS reflexively backed FAN/FRED and the whole Dodd VIP loan and Frank relationship with a person who directly profited from FAN/FRED is to me unacceptable.

    However, the people who went in and testified at the end of the Clinton Administration asking for leverage limits on financial institutions to be removed, well THAT precipitated this crisis. FAN/FRED could have been survived without implementing financial socialism as Bush has done.

    No, I would say take a look at Goldman Sachs exposure thru CDS via AIG, and their MASSIVE OVERLEVERAGING through all the big trading brokerage investment houses, I lost my Dad, God Bless him, entire 27 yrs of MER stock he left me after working there, it is all gone and a big thanks to another GS exec John Thain who yeah got us in with BoA so we survived but ran us and my NYX stock also into the damned ground with the rest of the GENIUSES on Wall St….

    Paulson, Bob Rubin-yeah a DEM, Dick Fuld, Greenspan, THOSE are the people who ran us into the frakin ground,. FAN FRED are a mere pittance compared to the TRILLION we are actually spending already to bail out the banks the PRIVATE sector banks….the capitalists who ran amuck.

    we need clawbacks and Frank is going to get them done, we need the housing values to stop dropping precipitously and the best way IMO to try and get a bottom is to buy the bad assets which is what Paulson claimed he would do with TARP and didnt do; and to frankly yeah bite it and write off some principal.

    Since the banks have 350 billion of our taxpayer dollars, they CAN and WILL do that, It appears they wil be forced to now by Frank

    THEY are maroons for not doing it voluntarily now Congress will enact RETRO provisions on their axxes!!

    Have you been wondering who is responsible for the bank crisis and the failure of Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac? Every voting age American should be required to watch this video. The video is from 2004 Congressional hearings about regulating Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac. You will see Republicans pointing out problems and calling for more regulation of Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac. You will see Barney Frank, Maxine Waters and other Democrats denying there is a problem and criticizing the regulators and Republicans for trying to prevent the upcoming crisis. If this video doesn’t make you ashamed to be a member of the Democratic Party, nothing will.
    Proof positive that democrats are responsible for bank crisis
