"Hank Paulson is the world's greatest salesman. We gave $700 billion to Wall Street and nobody cares."
New interview. Inhofe beats on Paulson.
Luke Rudkowski of We Are Change interviews Senator James Inhofe about his opposition to TARP and martial law threats he received from Henry Paulson.
Not stopping TARP was my biggest failure.
"Think about how big it was -- $700 billion given to an unelected bureaucrat, with no accountability, to do anything he wanted with it. Can this happen? It did."
- The banks still owe us about $250 billion.
- I'm still mad at all the Republicans for voting for TARP.
- You're the first person in 5 years that's even mentioned it.
- That thing was $700 billion, and nobody cares.
