The Potential Beholdenness of Judd Gregg

Well, I think the Republicans in the Senate would like to have a package, at least I would, that stimulates the economy and it's got to be a big and a robust package. I do feel, however, that the package that is presently pending misses the point and doesn't hit the nail on the head is the way I describe it.

The nail is the real estate issue, how we can stabilize real estate prices and how we can keep people in their homes and how we get value under these assets of the financial institutions can basically value their assets and really not enough effort is in this package on that issue in my opinion.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
