    Democratic senator ‘not sure’ why Treasury Secretary Geithner still has job

    I'm not sure because David Gregory had him almost -- trying to get a straight answer out of him. What the Treasury Secretary basically said was, yes, banks should take more risks and we should continue the loopholes and that is really appalling because, right now, we know that lack of transparency has caused this problem with the U.S. economy and Wall Street is continuing, one year later, continuing the same kind of loopholes. And so if the Treasury Secretary doesn't come down hard against these loopholes and advocate for closing them, then we're going to have a tough time closing them in Congress. So the Treasury Secretary is dodging the issue.

    LOL! I like this Senator.

    With a cabinet full of tax cheats, it's hard to imagine any solid drive for transparency being promoted.
