Comments: NY Times Covers Net Capital Rule Change, But Misses Paulson's 2000 Lobbying

I don't think that omission was unintentional. He still needs his $700B

Yeah, I think "omits" might be a better verb; "misses" is too generous.

Nice catch on your part, BTW.

Which brings us back to impeachment and other legal proceedings against VP and Dubya. Jailing BushCo would send a strong signal to the financial markets that action is being taken.

Monkay is right. WE could have saved 700billion dollars if WE had IMPEACHED as late as 2 weeks ago. This is just throwing money away. Bush and Paulson now have that 700billion, kiss it goodbye. Don't worry YOU ain't kissed THEM goodbte, they'll be back, it'll COST U&I a lot more. (price of "off the table" comes out of YOUR pocket)
