New House Financial Services Committee Chair: Barney Frank

by paradox

It is with enormous satisfaction that I share this clip of one of my all-time favorites, Barney Frank, now Chair of the House Financial Services Committee.

Mr. Frank has always been one of my heroes and I will always feel indebted to his service. h/t PoliticsTV, via Liberal Oasis.

That, in every sense of the word, is a real liberal.

Representative Frank also put forth a startling thesis that so little has been done in New Orleans because the tactic is "ethnic cleansing by inaction." Is that why so little has been done in New Orleans? It's radical diction but, to my continued amazement, we still abuse New Orleans in a radical way by screwing it up so badly.

It's worthy of discussion, but unfortunately the audio on the clips of this are terrible, one can barely make out what Mr. Frank says. Still, MyDD has a clip.

Good luck, Representative Frank. Thanks.
