Laura Flanders: An Economic Coup?

Laura Flanders: An Economic Coup?:

"The oligarchs in Bolivia used bullets and batons to undermine democracy. Here the weapons look like bailouts and blank checks, but the end goal is the same: Put the economy in a vice and you've tied the hands of whomever's in office. You, the voter, may not vote for the team that promises -- as the GOP service-cutters have promised -- to shrink the Treasury to a puddle that can be drowned in a bathtub. But no matter, your candidate gets the keys to the Treasury and - presto, the Treasury is bare."

Some will rob you with a six gun,
others with a fountain pen.

Paulson's plan makes me insane with anger.
