Great article depicting the wrong-headedness of the Obama administration. I wonder how many community bankers Tsongas spoke with before filing the bill?

All the banks interviewed for this article don't need the money, they have enough capital. It doesn't mean that there aren't other banks out there in Massachusetts and throughout the country that this might help.

Once again, this governement is trying to scam over the little people. The government and legislature are so corrupt. They spin everything so they can gain $$ in the end.

I didn't know she lived in Dayton. Perhaps if she had been there instead of in Washington she could have been available to make a comment. Lesson: Go home to Dayton, Niki!
