Too bad . . .

"What's in the Senate stimulus plan? All we have so far is a summary and a spreadsheet. The specifics of what the money is going to be spent on remains carefully concealed from view. Too bad we didn't elect an administration which promised to publish the full text of bills in advance of votes. Oh, right."
-- Jennifer Rubin
Don't worry, Jennifer. Just give 'em $800 billion, and you'll get all the transparency money can buy! Jimmy Bise Jr. at Sundries Shack has very similar thoughts, vis-a-vis the TARP:
Think about that. Your government refuses to tell you what it’s going to do with money it took from you under what we now see were false pretenses unless you let it take even more money under the very same pretenses.
"Trust us -- we're experts," is one of those rotten scams that no self-respecting carnie would dare attempt.
