TAXPAYER GETS SCREWED AGAIN

Today Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) President Grover Norquist condemned the passage of H.R. 2545, the “American Clean Energy and Security Act” also known as “capand-tax” or the National Energy Tax bill.. The bill passed 219-212, with 211 Democrats siding with Nancy Pelosi to support the broadest tax increase this year.  Eight Republicans crossed party lines to support the Democrat bill.

ATR notes American citizens can look forward to the following as a result of this vote:

•    Direct energy costs will go up $1,500 per year for the typical family of four.

•    Even with a 26% reduction is use, electric bills will be $754 higher in 2035 than in the absence of Waxman-Markey, and $12,200 higher in total from 2012 to 2035.

•    Even with a 15% decrease in gas consumption – prices will still go up! A family of four will still pay $596 more in 2035 and $7,500 more in total from 2012 to 2035.

•    From 2012-2035, a family of four will see its direct energy costs rise by $22,800.
 
•    On average, employment will be lower by 1,105,000 jobs per year. In some years, cap and trade will reduce employment by nearly 2.5 million jobs.

•    Waxman-Markey will drive up the national debt 26 percent by 2035. This represents an additional $29,150 per person, or $116,600 for a family of four.

“Every member who voted for this massive tax on every single American family just committed a criminally stupid and politically dangerous act,” said ATR president Grover Norquist.Americans might forget a vote to regulate some business is the mid-West, but once a month they will be reminded of this vote when they get their increased utility bill.”

BARNEY FRANK NAMED PORKER OF THE MONTH

167376 porkerof the month

Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddi...
Image via Wikipedia

Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) today named House Financial Services  Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) its March 2009 Porker of the Month.  The chairman, having somehow eluded this dubious award in the past, finally delivered enough of Barney’s blarney to be recognized, appropriately, on St. Patrick’s Day.

On Monday, March 16, 2009, Chairman Frank expressed public umbrage over reports that insurance giant AIG, a recipient of $173 billion from the U.S. Treasury, had distributed $165 million in retention bonuses to some of the employees who helped bring the company to the verge of collapse.  Chairman Frank fulminated that AIG had “rewarded failure” in awarding the bonuses.  That’s rich.

Chairman Frank has never been shy about rewarding failure in the past and he generally favors using taxpayer dollars to do it.  He was front and center in support of enactment of TARP, which noticeably had no enforceable strings attached related to executive compensation.  Indeed, he helped promote perks for bank executives.  According to a January 24, 2009 Boston Herald editorial, Chairman Frank made sure “one of the recipients of a $12 million infusion of federal cash was the troubled OneUnited Bank in Boston – a bank that had already been accused of ‘unsafe and unsound banking practices.’  Its CEO, Kevin Cohee had also been criticized by regulators for ‘excessive’ pay that included a Porsche.”  Chairman Frank included specific provisions in TARP aimed at bailing out OneUnited and spoke directly to Treasury officials about it.

Perhaps most damning is Chairman Frank’s irresponsible defense of the activities of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac over the years, even when it became clear that executives at the two giant government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) had manipulated earnings statements and gifted themselves with huge bonuses based on the bogus numbers, misled regulators, and steered the companies into such shoddy condition that they posed a systemic risk to the entire financial system.  Chairman Frank must regret his September 11, 2003 statement to The New York Times that Fannie and Freddie “are not facing any kind of financial crisis…[t]he more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.”  During a 2003 committee hearing related to establishing oversight over the GSEs, he casually announced that he didn’t want “the same kind of focus on safety and soundness that we have in Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Office of Thrift Supervision.  I want to roll the dice a little bit more in this situation towards subsidized housing.”  We know how that worked out:  the GSEs are now almost entirely owned by the taxpayers; Freddie Mac tapped the Treasury for $13.8 billion in 2008; and Fannie Mae is on deck to get $15.2 billion this year.

“Even in this global capital of hot air, bait-and-switch politics, and double-talk, Chairman Frank deserves singular recognition,” said CAGW President Tom Schatz.  “It strains credulity to hear him rebuking anyone for rewarding failure after he helped create the disaster in the first place.”

For his ample and under-appreciated contributions to the nation’s current economic meltdown and his near-genius ability to engage in the two-faced blame game, CAGW names House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank March Porker of the Month.

Citizens Against Government Waste is the nation’s largest nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government.  Porker of the Month is a dubious honor given to lawmakers, government officials, and political candidates who have shown a blatant disregard for the interests of taxpayers.

BARNEY FRANK GIVES “ACORN” $4 BILLION DOLLAR SLUSH FUND

Barney Frank is at it again.  Last year, Frank passed a bill in the House for a $4 billion slush fund that the corrupt left-win activist organization known as ACORN could have applied to for taxpayer funds.  Frank was forced by the Senate to accept a provision barring taxpayer funds to organizations and employees of organizations, such as ACORN, that have been indicted for voter fraud.  This year, with increased Liberal majorities in the House and Senate, Frank made sure ACORN remained eligible for funds from the Stimulus Bill.  Now, Frank, the Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, is using a mortgage reform bill due to be voted on this week to add another $180 million for “counseling” and “legal services” for people with mortgage problems.  This time he ran up against Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN), a member of his committee.  Citing numerous charges of voter fraud and tax violations against ACORN in a number of states, Bachmann proposed an amendment with the same language as last year’s law. Afraid of a debate and committee vote, Frank cut off debate and accepted the Bachmann amendment.  Apparently this did not sit well with Franks’ left-wing friends because just hours later he announced he would try to gut the amendment when the bill is voted on by the whole House.
 
TAKE ACTION NOW!  GO HERE AND TELL Rep. John F. Tierney TO OPPOSE THE FRANK AMENDMENT TO H.R. 1728, THE MORTGAGE REFORM ACT
 
This is a rare opportunity to put every member of the House of Representatives on record as to where they stand on ACORN.  Normally, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi could prevent a vote on the Bachmann provision but they are forced to have a vote because the provision is already in the bill and they want it out.
 
Frank claimed he made a ‘mistake’ in accepting the Bachmann amendment and that he believes barring people under indictment from taxpayer funds is “a violation of the principles of due process”.  Instead of proposing to eliminate the Bachmann provision outright, Frank is proposing to rewrite it to make ACORN eligible for funds.  ‘Indictment’ would be changed to ‘conviction’ and ‘senior employees’ would have to be the ones convicted.  This would make the provision meaningless.
 
ACORN, claiming to be a legitimate “community organizing and counseling” organization has a long record of abusing tax and voting laws.  According to recent testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, ACORN has been under investigation in some states for, among other things:
“Violations of the Internal Revenue Code as a 501(c)(3) charitable and educational organization for intervening in partisan campaign activities;”

“Violations of the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 (FECA) which prohibits expenditures by non-profit corporations, including ACORN and Project Vote, that are made in coordination with, at the request, behest, suggestion or with the material involvement of a federal campaign; and”

“Fraudulent voter registration activities, failure to comply with state law in voter registration drives, absence of quality control and training, and the internal procedures as to how ACORN responds to allegations of illegality.”
GO HERE AND SEND AN EMAIL TO URGE Rep. John F. Tierney TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST ACORN BY VOTING AGAINST THE FRANK AMENDMENT
The about face by a powerful committee chairman shows how much influence corrupt left-wing organizations like ACORN have gained in this Congress.  Each member of the House must know their constituents will be watching their vote on this amendment. In introducing this amendment, Congresswoman Bachmann asked the question, “Whose side are we on, the taxpayer or ACORN?
LET YOUR MEMBER OF CONGRESS KNOW RIGHT HERE THAT YOU WANT YOUR REPRESENTATIVE TO BE ON THE SIDE OF THE TAXPAYER BY VOTING ‘NO’ ON THE FRANK AMENDMENT
We at the American Conservative Union thank you for all you do to advance conservative, free-market principles.

WALL ST. & GOVERNMENT PARTNERS IN ORGANIZED CRIME

I’ve been thinking a lot about the economic crisis. It has damaged the security of our Country and has hurt so many innocent people. The people on Wall St. and their conspirators in government have caused this country more damage than Al Qaeda. I agree with President Obama that we have to focus on solving the crisis. But solving the crisis means identifying what criminals did what to cause the damage. People are outraged that the same people at AIG that caused the problem got bonuses. What about the outrage that the same people in government who conspired with them are now in charge of solving the problem?

The worst economic crisis since the “Great Depression” was primarily the result of three government actions. First, repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act and hundreds of post Depression regulations that then allowed Wall St. investment firms to compete with Banks. Second, the derivatives market was exempted from regulatory control. This allowed Wall St. to create derivatives and then criminally over-leveraged them to cause the whole house of cards to collapse. Third, Wall St. was allowed to carry off-balance sheet accounting and to use “self-policing” to regulate that market. This allowed Wall St. to hide overleveraged phony derivatives from regulators, if they ever decided to look.

It is certain that the present economic crisis is due primarily to the deregulation of Wall St. and the failure to regulate derivatives. It is just as certain that some people on Wall St. are making a lot of money with the tax-payer bailouts. So if we follow the old adage “follow the money”, what do we get? Why did some Wall St. firms get bailed out and not others? Why was AIG allowed to keep bonuses and launder money to Goldman-Sachs, Citigroup and UBS? The map of key players reads like an old Mafia organization map, tracing connections between Wall St. and Government. This is the organization that stole our savings and is stealing our tax dollars now:

Robert Rubin (AKA “The Accountant”): Former executive with Goldman-Sachs and 70th Secretary of the Treasury. He spearheaded the Clinton Administration effort to repeal the Glass-Steagall Act and exempt derivatives. He now works for Citigroup.

Larry Summers (AKA “The Apprentice”): Currently the Chief Economic Advisor to the President, former 71st Secretary of the Treasury and former assistant to Robert Rubin. He assured that derivatives would be exempted from regulations and was a big proponent of allowing Wall St. to “self-regulate”.

Henry Paulson (AKA “The Don”): the power behind the organization. He was the former CEO of Goldman-Sachs and 74th Secretary of Treasury. He organized and coordinated the government response to the Wall St. bailouts with Goldman-Sachs. He made the decisions on who got money and who didn’t. For example, when Lehman Brothers and AIG requested bailouts, Paulson had a “sit down” with current Sachs CEO, Lloyd Blankfein in late Sept. 2008 and decided to let Sachs competitor Lehman Brothers fail, but bail out AIG. Who was AIG’s biggest trading partner? Goldman-Sachs. Too bad you Lehman Brothers, Bear-Stearns investors backed the wrong horse. Maybe you should pay more attention to who is in government than your portfolio. Paulson runs the organization now through his positions on the Boards of TARP and FSOB.

Tim Geithner (AKA “Babyface”): Former assistant to Robert Rubin and Larry Summers and now the 75th Secretary of Treasury. He helped Rubin and Summers destroy the regulation of Wall St. and exemption of derivatives. Recommended by “the Don” Paulson, he is now in charge of making sure the organization takes care of it’s own. Just to be sure, his Chief of Staff is Mark Patterson, formerly of Goldman-Sachs. Patterson strong armed Sen. Dodd into taking out the restrictions on bonuses to AIG and allowed AIG to pay-off lenders at full price such as Goldman-Sachs

Ben Bernanke (AKA “The Banker”): Chair of the Federal Reserve. He withdrew the money and put it into TARP to pay off, sorry, “bail out” Wall St. firms such as Sachs and Citigroup at the recommendation of Paulson. He appointed Neel Kahkari, formerly V.P. of (you guessed it) Goldman-Sachs to head TARP. He negotiated the deal to save AIG and allowed all initial TARP money to be given to Wall St. without conditions.

Sen. Phil Gramm (AKA “The Assassin”): Along with Robert Rubin and Larry Summers, he spearheaded the Senate legislation to kill Glass-Steagall, regulations on trade and accounting and exempt derivatives. While Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee he exacted over 3 billion dollars of contributions to allies in the Government from Wall St. He was in a position to take over as “Don” but failed in the 2008 election. He has since become a lobbyist for… UBS, one of the firms AIG laundered TARP money to pay off.

So can we trust the same men in government who caused the economic crisis (by enabling Wall St.’s thefts of our future) to make sure our money now goes to solve the problem? Or can we expect that they will enrich the same people who stole our money with our tax dollars? Is it any wonder why Goldman-Sachs is now “whole” and has fewer competitors? Is it any wonder why we can’t account for hundreds of billions of tax dollars already given to Goldman-Sachs, Citigroup and AIG?

Is it time to realize that we are being robbed by a conspiracy that reaches from Goldman-Sachs to the Obama Administration to AIG and back again when the next round of pay-offs, I mean bail-outs occur.
