"I'm glad you raised that, because it gives me a chance to make a point I've felt strongly about," said Frank. "In this terrible situation, let's be very grateful that we had a well-funded, functioning government. It is very fashionable in America, and has been for some time to criticize government, belittle public employees, talk about their pensions, talk about what people think ... of [their] health care. Here we saw government in two ways perform very well. ... I never was as a member of Congress one of the cheerleaders for less government, lower taxes. No tax cut would have helped us deal with this or will help us recover. This is very expensive."

I just have one question.
How did Barney Frank get so rich, working as a public servant?
And we are supposed to each ‘chip in more’ individually.
Hey, Frankie boy, leave the thinking to those of us with brains and go back to doing what you do best: speaaking in a wierd manner and bending over for your friends.
What a piece of excrement.
gun bans wouldn’t have helped either, but that won’t stop barney and his idiot friends(republican and democrat) from pushing them.
That would be the Government that’s well funded enough to start a fight with the Governor of Arizona over her enforcing Federal Immigration Laws that Bawny’s buddies won’t enforce.
You do that a little too well ZULU. lol
Sadly, citizens of MASS vote for clowns like Barney Frank, then expect him to handle real-world issues like national security.
The result is, he bops his boyfriend and gives a lisping speech while moslems detonate bombs.
So says the corrupt faggot who shielded Fannie from investigation and was rewarded with a young piece of male ass.
In other words, this tragedy shows that we should not debate about whether there are too many government employees or whether some of their benefits are too lavish.
I’m amazed after Fannie & Freddie anyone gives a flip what Franks thinks
Barney “Bitch Tits” Frank.
We have got to stop electing idiots. Or, have we become the idiots and the elected are the bright ones?
Wasn’t he recently treated for an impacted gerbil?
Frank and Dodd knew that that a collapse would happen in 2008. That is why they deliberately did nothing as chairmen of their respective committees. The plan was to blame it all on Bush. It worked. They retired.
If you tell me they are planning another round of crash and blame, well I believe it.
Sounds like he’s just opened the door to the theory that Democrats upset about the sequester could be responsible.
not with advanced syphilis
STDs can do very bad things to your brain - Bawney shows all the signs.
But a “president” who spent a little time in the oval office with his sleeves rolled up once in a while might.
