Tough Questions from Minnesota

Rep. Michele Bachmann from Minnesota drills Bernanke and Geithner on the constitutional source of the authority for the actions they have recently taken, as well as their avoidance of providing full information to the public and the Congress. Not surprisingly, they have trouble making a coherent answer and Barney Frank is noticeably irritated by the end. Finally, someone else is asking tough questions.

Notice how even Bernanke is calling it a bailout now. HAHA!

this makes me want to punch Barney Frank in the face.
But I really like that the Congresswoman asks specifically about the provisions in the Constitution and they think that's so archaic - to have to go to a written constitution for authority? Who are we, the founding fathers???
