  •  Why was he ever there? (8+ / 0-)

    He was in charge of oversight of New York banks when they all imploded, due to lack of oversight.

    He was then promoted to the White House, where his notable accomplishments have been throwing money at banks with no strings attached, and opposing Elizabeth Warren's creation of a government department dedicated to protecting consumers.

    I don't recall off the top of my head, but I'm pretty sure he's also one of the reasons the stimulus was low-balled.  As the guy in charge of the United State money supply, he should be strenuously advocating every single day for policies that get money flowing in America, such as jobs stimulus, unemployment benefits, SNAP, etc. etc.  Now he's been put in charge of cutting the social safety net.
